Exactly What You Need

Some agencies want citizens to pay for the processing costs. Other agencies need to accept every payment type or want to limit the purchase time. Still, others need to accept cash digitally to support financial inclusion.

More than logos and colors, IntelliPay allows agencies to set their terms and conditions, choose payment types, absorb the costs or pass along the costs using service/convenience fees, or manage the options their staff can offer. In short, you get exactly what your agency needs and your customers expect.

Sound interesting? Let’s talk.

Less Frustration for All

Recent research found that almost 40% of consumers couldn’t complete paying their bills due to frustration with a complicated online payment processing process.

Our single payment screen is laid out like a physical credit card, is intuitive, and eliminates citizen frustration in making government payments. Less citizen frustration equals more online payments and less work for agency staff.

Also, ask about our single payment screen payment solution for third parties making multiple property tax payments.

Fewer Missed or Late Payments

When asked in a survey about late payments, citizens 40 and under responded, “it was hard to remember due dates. ”Most people surveyed also said a reminder would help them avoid paying late. Our OneLink option lets agencies send secure “pay now” links via SMS (text) and email, reducing the time spent chasing late or missed payments.

Reduced PCI Compliance

Since every credit and debit card, ACH, echeck, and eCash payment is made on our secure PCI DSS Level 1 EMV compliant network, your and your citizen’s confidential data is protected.

And, your agency is out of PCI DSS scope, freeing agency staff to work on other essential tasks.
