How to Offer Integrated Payments

Now that you’ve seen what integrated payment solutions looks like in action, you may be wondering how you can offer similar services to your users. Here are tips to help you do just that.

Select the Right Payment Processor

The first step in becoming an integrated payment solutions company is to find a payments partner that offers the right billing and payment processing capabilities. Take Stax Connect, which has everything SaaS companies need to offer integrated payments.

Stax Connect supports multiple payment types including:

  • credit and debit cards
  • invoicing
  • SMS payments
  • mobile payments
  • online payments

Stax Connect also has surcharging capabilities, which you can offer to users who want to lower their payment processing fees.

What’s more, Stax Connect has an existing relationship with the world’s leading sponsor bank, which means you can benefit from the stability of being backed by a solid financial institution.

Establish an Effective Payment Enrollment Process

Another key decision that comes with offering integrated payment processing is setting up your payment enrollment method. Payment enrollment refers to the process of getting your users onboard your payment solution. In other words, it’s all about how users can sign up for payments, so they can start using your platform to get paid.

Stax Connect gives SaaS companies three payment enrollment options.

1. Full API enrollment

You can choose the full API route, which lets you offer a payment experience that’s 100% on brand. With full API enrollment, your users can sign up for payments from inside your application, making the process smooth and seamless.

Just bear in mind that a full API enrollment does require API knowledge and substantial developer resources. You will need a team of coders who can build this enrollment process into your software through the Stax API.

2. Hybrid API enrollment

With the hybrid API method, your users can begin the enrollment process inside your software, then proceed to a co-branded landing page on their browser, where they can complete their application. This enrolment method utilizes the Stax Signup Application using Single Sign On (SSO) capabilities to securely direct users from your software to the web-based application form.

While you may have to do a bit of coding, the hybrid API enrollment requires significantly less developer resources than a full API approach.

3. White-glove enrollment

The white-glove enrollment option requires zero development work because you’ll be personally helping users sign up for payments. Instead of giving people a self-service application, the white-glove enrollment method involves someone from your team to facilitate the enrollment process on behalf of your users.

Start Selling Payments

Already have a payments partner and enrollment method in place? Then you’re ready to market and sell payments!

Kick things off by promoting your payment offerings on your website. Similar to the examples we showcased above, you can create a dedicated section on your site to talk up your payment capabilities.

It also helps to encourage your sales team to promote integrated payments to both new and existing users. Educate your staff about the benefits of integrated payment systems (i.e., a better experience, lower fees, etc.), and instruct them to relay those value propositions to users.

Ready to Become an Integrated Payment Solutions Company?

If you’re a SaaS company helping users run their businesses, offering integrated payment solutions can take your platform to new heights. By giving people the ability to accept payments and streamline the customer experience, you’ll be able to attract more users and drive faster growth.
