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. 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 debit & cedit cards. You have total flexibility in which payment types to enable in your checkout process—you can turn on all three payment rails for convenience, or just one or two to optomize cost or preference. 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 invoices, regular services, property management, 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.
