Get Paid on Time, Every Time

As their contractor, your clients trust you to meet their expectations.

Whether a client calls you for a new sink fixture, bathtub repair, or even a full bathroom remodel, they expect that you will be reliable and get the job done in a timely manner. In turn, you expect that your clients will pay you for your services on time.

To get paid on time, every time, from every client, you need to have a flexible payment solution in place. The ability to accept a credit card in-person or over the phone is a basic business necessity, but wouldn’t it be great if you could get more out of your investment? With the right payment processing solution, you can take payment acceptance and your business to the next level.
