Improving collections and reducing paperwork for provincial, regional, and local governments.
People want and increasingly expect the same electronic payment options from government offices that they receive from businesses, service providers and even many charities and non-profit organizations. Payroc makes it easy for provincial and municipal governments to accept credit cards and debit cards. The result: higher customer satisfaction, improved collections and record keeping, and less time spent on payment handling by government employees. Payroc’s solutions reduced paper handling and improved record keeping, as well as deliver faster deposit of collected funds.
Service Fee Solution
Intelligent Rate gives eligible businesses and institutions the capability to accept credit card payments paying no cost for the transactions. This is a “revenue-neutral” card acceptance solution which also allows consumers to choose the fee they pay.
For Government and Education
- Automatically calculate the service fee amount based on card type
- Pass on the actual cost of card acceptance to consumers
- Reduce your institution’s processing costs to zero
Electronic payments offer tremendous benefits for governments, but there is a cost for processing these transactions. Payroc’s convenience and service fee programs offer government entities three different funding options for payment processing— revenue positive, revenue neutral or conventional rates.
• Conventional rates: Traditional merchant account priced to minimize the expenses associated with processing
Convenience and Service Fees
When allowed by law, convenience and service fees can provide additional revenue for governments, or at least underwrite the processing costs of electronic payments. Our convenience fee programs comply with MasterCard and Visa requirements. Convenience fees can be assessed for fines, bonds and traffic violations, building permits, parking permits, recreation permits and by departments such as justice, health, and utilities. Payroc also supports service fees for electronic payment of local property taxes as well as federal and provincial taxes.
