Everyone has seen at least one lawyer TV show, but have you ever seen them exchange cash for services on screen? Have you ever seen the assistants deal with the cash payments? No and no.
It’s not just because you're watching a TV show, but also because law firms often charge hefty sums for their services. It just isn’t convenient or safe for your firm to be paid in cash and keep that cash on-hand.
It is also difficult for clients to get huge sums of money out of their accounts and then pay upfront. Checks take days to clear and clients today want fast, fool-proof, and hassle-free transactions.
Moreover, it is cumbersome to set up a meeting with a regular client every time a payment is due.
By opting for credit card payment processing for your law firm, you can experience quick, convenient, and stress-free transactions. No more worrying about your safety or waiting in long lines at the bank.

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 easily and securely email invoices to your clients.
This is a great solution for recurring clients, as you will only have to send an invoice to them 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. It's also a great option if your client is based in another city or country.
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.
Setting up appointments just to exchange payments seems unnecessary, especially if your law firm is looking to improve its productivity and time management.
EMS Mobile processes credit card payments straight from your mobile device. All you need is a connection to a mobile network or WiFi, and you can take payments anywhere.
You can even print the transaction invoice as long as your device allows you to do so.
Law firms provide numerous services to a variety of clients. As a best practice, we recommend keeping electronic records of each client’s past transactions and client profiles for future purposes.
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. This is a highly secure record that means you won’t have to collect payment information every single time you bill the client.
This is ideal for clients who have you on retainer or otherwise frequently employ your expertise.
Moreover, 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.
