ProfitStars Offers Small Businesses Option to Receive Online Payments

Feb. 11, 2011

Missouri-based electronic payment solutions provider Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. recently announced that its ProfitStars division has introduced the Customer Payment Portal, a solution that enables small businesses and non-profit organizations to easily accept online payments or donations. The company said the solution is ideal for organizations that do not have access to, or the need for, shopping cart functionality but want to enhance their online revenue stream or donations. The portal—which can be configured to accept single or recurring payments from checking/savings accounts, as well as credit card transactions—offers a unique URL address that is linked from the company’s website and accepts payments or donations. This payment portal can be customized for each business, and does not require the organization to store sensitive transaction information in its own system. Jack Henry & Associates offers its products through its small and midsize banking clients. “Online payments is an imperative payment channel for consumers today, and businesses need this option for quick, efficient payments and added customer convenience,” said David Foss, president of ProfitStars. “The Customer Payment Portal enables businesses to easily add this functionality to their online presence. It is a must-have for any business not already offering online payments, and a strong customer retention tool for financial institutions.”
