It’s understandable, of course, as no business — big or small — could ever survive without its customers, but today we’re going to talk about another relationship vital to small businesses, the relationship each business has with its vendors. This relationship is no less important, as the right vendors can help a small business separate itself from the pack and grow and thrive in every relationship going forward.

All Aboard – Batch Onboarding in the Payment Facilitator Model

Posted by Ben Kauder on Jul 12, 2017 5:02:00 AM

Payment facilitation was created to remove the friction of having a one-by-one onboarding process so that a bulk group of merchants who use a common software platform can be quickly and easily boarded to a processing platform. As a payment facilitator, Singular Payments’ Payfac in a Box™ solution does just that. When your software has hundreds or thousands of user/merchants to board onto a payments platform, it can be a very time-consuming and painful process without automation. Using our APIs, we can quickly and efficiently onboard thousands of merchants at a time through our complete payment facilitator interface. Through our API your sub merchants are onboarded and ready to process instantly once they click ACCEPT on the Terms and Conditions documents which will be emailed to them. We also have a team of in-house expert sales and customer support specialists to assist any merchants by phone who need extra help understanding the Terms and Conditions and accepting them to start processing. We know through working with developers that onboarding and getting merchants up and processing is the biggest stumbling block to any successful integration, so our solution includes a batch onboarding interface along with a customized customer service experience to ensure an A-rated experience across the board.
