Four Keys to Adding Payments to Your Software Platform
Feb 11, 2016 by Jeremy Almond
It’s been said that “software is eating the world” - and it’s true. Software platforms for businesses (aka B2B software platforms) are proliferating at an accelerating rate, serving a dizzying array of business needs including accounting, project management, time tracking, billing, CRM, and many others. Developers are racing to fill the needs, creating broad-based “generic” platforms as well as highly specialized tools that cater to the specific needs of particular industries. So whether a company sells organic beverages to corner groceries or horse feed for thoroughbreds, there are probably multiple tools available to help them to better manage their business. The abundance of tools creates an imperative for platform providers to continuously add new capabilities to deliver value to their users. Increasingly, B2B software platform providers are turning to payment services as a key area of innovation.

What are eChecks and How Do Businesses Accept Them?
Jun 20, 2015 by Scott Campbell
An electronic check has many names - eCheck, direct debit, direct deposit, and online check are just a few. And while credit cards have been the default payment method for businesses for over a decade, this new alternative is making headway. Essentially a form of ACH processing, eCheck Processing enable your customers to pay you directly from their bank account, using their secure online banking login. Your customer can authorize a one-time or recurring payment as quickly as a credit card transaction. But that's not all. A customer or merchant can even take picture of their paper check and upload it to their payments portal, and the bank will initiate an ACH transaction after "reading" the check. But in most cases, you don't even need the flimsy, outdated piece of paper. Electronic checks are by and large used completely online.
