Law Firm Credit Card Processing & Merchant Services -

How to Pick the Best Service?

Legal services are unique in terms of costs and billing, so credit card payment processing for law firms must be adaptable and secure to meet these needs for both the legal team and the clients.

With large retainer fees and billable hours, law firms need more than a standard credit card machine.

By opting for an upgraded credit card payment processing system for your law firm, you can experience quick, convenient, and stress-free transactions that accelerate your revenue intake, expand your client management services and satisfy your clients’ needs for simple, convenient payments.

Benefits of Payment Processing for Law Firms

Email Invoicing for easy payments

With a Virtual Terminal solution, you'll no longer have to manually create invoices or waste time and paper by mailing them to clients. A Virtual Terminal allows you to email invoices easily and securely to your clients.

This is a great solution for recurring clients, as you will only have to send an invoice to them, regardless of their location, at the end of each month or after each service is performed. Plus, you can securely store client credit card information for simple payments.

A virtual terminal helps to reduce any confusion or misunderstanding and enables swift and error-free payments for your law firm.


Payment Gateway for security and convenience

Backing our Virtual Terminal and eCommerce shopping cart solutions is EMS' Payment Gateway technology.

This technology is designed to complement your back-office processes and ensure secure payments and data security.

A payment gateway allows you to create client profiles and securely store their credit card information for future payments.

This adds incredible convenience for you and your clients. No more asking for a card number on every invoice! You can also "set and forget" ongoing payments by scheduling the gateway to automatically run the charges when due.

How EMS Merchant Services Benefit Your Law Firm

Mobile Solutions to accept payments anywhere

EMS Mobile processes credit card payments for your legal office straight from your mobile device. 

All you need is a connection to a mobile network or Wi-Fi, and you can take payments anywhere.

You can even print the transaction invoice for your record keeping.

Law firms maintain lengthy client lists, so electronic records of each client’s past transactions and client profiles are essential for your firm management.

EMS’ virtual terminal includes inventory and customer management, along with reporting tools that allow for simple and automated transactions. Each client at your law firm will have a customer profile that includes a highly secure record of payments client information, so you won’t have to collect payment details every single time you bill the client – an ideal solution for clients on retainer or those who visit for recurring services.

On top of preserving historical data, the virtual terminal payment processing solution for your law firm enhances operations for automatic scheduling and mobile convenience. You do not need to worry about payments at the end of the month, as you can set the schedule on the payment gateway so that timely payments are made automatically.

The virtual terminal is available on the web or through a smartphone or tablet. The application is available on both iOS and Android app stores.
