Two Payment Options.
Your business may choose to offer "Payment Plans" with set amounts and billing cycles; or "Payments on Account" for client-entered payment amounts from a statement; or both options.
- Live Demo #1. Click to open a sample of eClientPayment as experienced by a client receiving a unique URL to initiate a payment plan with a recurring amount for a specific length of time.
- Register. Begin by choosing and entering a password. The system will lift the client's email address used during the secure payment transaction. This eliminates any entry errors that would prevent auto-recurring charges to the payment method account data.
- Billing Options Clients may find it more convenient to budget payments weekly or monthly, given individual circumstances. Your business can enter billing options that give clients the choice of payment frequency. The amount collected is the same with all options, but the frequency and amount per payment can be optional. Since payment is automatic, offering these options places no additional time demands for collection on office staff.
- Okay next… Once a password is entered and billing option (if offered) is selected, the client clicks to move to the next screen containing a preview of the payment plan terms.
- Review Order This screen summarizes the payment plan, detailing the terms agreed upon by your business and the client. One click to initiate the payment plan takes the client to PayPal where secure payment data is entered.
- Client Account Profile Once payment transaction is complete, clients are returned to the Log In page. They can now log into their account and check transaction history for their payment plan. If you entered a demo payment, log in with your own username email and password. If not, feel free to log in using "email@example.com" and the password "demo123" to test the system.
- Live Demo #2. Click to open a sample of client payment on account. This option exists to allow payment from monthly statments with amount entered by the client.
