Payment Processing Solutions for Utility Providers

Utility providers make the lives of their clients better. You provide a service that people need, whether that is electricity, water, gas, or another vital necessity.

That means you are an integral part of your clients’ lives. On the other hand, those customers are essential for your company to increase profit and boost growth.

It is only natural that you are thinking about maximizing the quality of service you provide to your clients. You already ensured flawless delivery of the amenities you provide, but have you thought about improving the payment process?

We are living in a digital era. You've probably noticed people are paying with credit cards everywhere. And that’s not surprising – it is an easy way to pay, and you don’t have to worry about carrying cash with you.

While you might think that implementing credit card payment processing for utility providers is a hassle, Electronic Merchant Systems makes it a cinch.

Let’s discuss the potential benefits and how utility providers like you can profit from implementing this solution.

Payment Processing Benefits for Utility Services

Are you wondering why you need a credit card payment processor?

Here are the major reasons to consider implementing this solution:

  • Allow 24/7 payments – not only can your clients pay online from any where, but they can also pay their bills around the clock. Whether it is late at night or early in the morning, clients can make a payment easily.
  • Recurring payments – utility providers deliver bills to their customers each month. A payment processing system allows you to set up recurring payments. This eliminates the risk of your client forgetting a bill or missing a payment.
  • Storing credit card information – our platform can store credit card information safely, which eliminates the need for to enter the same information every time.
  • Pay on the go – EMS has a system that supports mobile and other portable devices. This allows customers to pay wherever they are through a computer, smartphone, or tablet. It is another way of making the entire process convenient for your clients.
  • Email invoicing – printing and mailing bills is a old-school approach to invoicing. Not only does it take time for the bill to arrive, but you also risk it getting lost in the mail. Email invoicing eliminates this risk. It allows you to deliver all billing details to your customers immediately while saving paper and protecting the planet.

These benefits are primarily client-focused, but they all lead to a major advantage that EMS secures for utility providers.

Thanks to credit card payment processing, you will increase revenue and improve timely payment collection.

Electronic payment methods may also motivate customers to pay their bills sooner.

Immediate processing allows you to get paid for your hard work quickly.
