Taking payments is one of the most important tasks for a business, but this does not mean that it should take most of your time. For this reason, SimplyPayMe allows you to take payments in the simplest way possible: by scanning a credit or debit card with your mobile device.
How to take payments by scanning your card
When using the app, you can decide to take a payment for a specific job anytime. To do so, you should click on a job previously created, input the amount earned, and press “Continue”. At this point, you will be prompted to choose your preferred method to receive the payment. Alternatively, you can select “Take A Payment” on the Customer or Job page and enter the information for the first time. You will be able to choose between Debit or Credit Card, Email Payment Link or Cash. If you choose to take the payment via a card, our app will automatically redirect you to the card scanner. Here, your clients can simply frame their card in the camera lens, and our app will do the magic. Our technology will seamlessly transfer the card information to our system to enable the payment. Once you checked that the card information is accurate, you will simply need to manually input the card’s 3-digit (for MasterCard and Visa) or 4-digit (for American Express) code (CVV) and press “Done”. Just like that, in a matter of seconds, the payment is complete. Can you think of a quicker way to collect what you are due?
How it works
The technology behind this payment method is known as Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This is a business solution for automated data extraction from documents that converts written and printed texts into machine-readable texts usually used for data processing. OCR identifies the various information on a card and converts them into data that can be easily processed. This allows to increase security, reduce errors and improve speed.
