Cut the Paper - Keep the Cash

Posted by Danielle Lafontaine on Jun 21, 2017 9:09:20 AM


Free money. That’s what everyone is dreaming of right? The ability to add a revenue stream to their business without any extra hassle, expense or risk. Well, the easiest way for ISVs or software developers to do just that is by integrating a payments platform like our Payfac in a Box™ solution. Not only can merchants process electronic payments through the solution but you can use our APIs from the Singular BillPAY side of the platform to also integrate their bill presentment and payment operations from customers into it, therefore saving them time and money on no longer mailing invoices or chasing down past due accounts. It’s a major win-win for you, the software company and your merchant users. And of course, the best part of the software platform is that they get a revenue share on all the transactions processed! We make payments software integrations easy. Read on to learn more.

Introducing the Singular Pay Plugin

Posted by Danielle Lafontaine on May 31, 2017 5:19:33 AM

Singular Pay's iFrame Plugin offers a complete, ready-to-use payment interface for a quick and easy way to accept payments through your website. PCI compliance is made much easier with the plugin; as it makes the end merchant eligible for SAQ A, a much shorter version of the required annual survey, since Singular hosts the form that captures customer payment information. The customer’s information is therefore secured through our back-end payment gateway which is fully PCI compliant.
