Get ahead of your payment costs with our innovative flat-rate model.
We offer flexible plans to save you money at every stage of your business.
Fee-based pricing is the norm in the payment industry, but we’re taking a different approach, based on software-as-a-service (SaaS). With PayStand, you get the payment technology you need for a flat monthly plan that makes sense for your business. Rather than mark up every transaction, we give you 0% payment options like eCheck and eCash. Where there are unavoidable fees to our banking partners, such as credit card interchange fees, you’ll only pay the lowest wholesale rate* we have negotiated, with no markup. PayStand's monthly plans will keep your merchant costs straightforward, predictable, and transparent.
With most payment providers, fees are deducted from every transaction, so the more volume you do, the higher your fees. PayStand’s flat-rate subscription model gives you the opportunity to grow your business and come out ahead on payment costs. If you’re switching from offline payments, you may find you save even more on the overhead costs of processing paper checks.
Every PayStand plan supports eCheck, eCash and major credit cards, as well as paper checks via the photo check capture feature in the PayStand mobile app. You have total flexibility in which payment types to enable in your checkout process—you can turn on all three payment rails, or just one or two. Your customer can choose among the available types when they check out. You can even discount for your preferred method.
Yes; you can include monthly and annual automated payments for both eCheck and credit card in your checkout. Recurring payments are a great option for ongoing services, rent, membership fees and other high-value, fixed payments.
Yes, the PayStand platform allows you to add credit card fees to the cost of your item so they are absorbed by the customer. This makes sense when you are offering an alternative method such as eCheck, so your customer can choose the lowest-cost option. Passing through, or “surcharging” credit card fees became legal as the result of a 2013 class-action lawsuit against Visa and MasterCard. However, each state has its own laws governing how merchants can surcharge fees, so we encourage you to check with the attorney general’s website for your state before using this feature.
No. PayStand’s modern checkout and embed tools allow you to keep your customers on your website so you can maintain trust and minimize your falloff rate caused by directing people to a 3rd party site.
Yes. Every PayStand plan includes the ability to customize your checkout window, emailed receipts, etc. with your organization’s name and logo. Our Enterprise plan includes options for a complete white label integration of the PayStand technology into your product, service or Intranet.
No. PayStand does not require your users to have a PayStand account to make a payment. We’ve reduced the number of steps involved with making a payment to as few as possible.
No; the PayStand platform works by giving your customer a secure interface to pay you on the Web or on their mobile phone. You can request payment from your customer via a secure link you can generate in your PayStand dashboard, or by placing “buy” buttons on your website.
One exception to this rule is the PayStand mobile app, which includes a card reader so you can swipe a customer’s credit card. The customer must be present for a mobile card-swipe transaction. For more information on prohibited uses please read PayStand’s Terms of Service.
PayStand gives you the flexibility to accept payments for invoice payments, services rendered, products shipped, digital downloads, subscriptions, memberships, tickets, and donations. For a list of high-risk business categories we're unable to support, please see our Terms of Service.
