ProSeries Webinar: ServeManager Payments and the Integrated Order Form

According to a customer survey, ServeManager Payments (powered by Stripe) is saving companies more than 10 minutes per invoice by being able to collect payment via credit card right from their ServeManager invoices. Their past due balances are going down, and they're spending less time collecting.

Before ServeManager payments they were getting paid in less than 10 days only 28% of the time. After enabled ServeManager payments, this jumped to 68%! As a business owner, you know how important cashflow is critical to keep your business running.

In this webinar we go over two ServeManager time savers. ServeManager payments, is one of the easiest ways to save time in receiving your money from clients. The integrated order form allows visitors to your website to order services. Both of these features can work together or independently. Our goals include making managing your business easier, and both ServeManager Payments and the Integrated Order Form, set out to do just that!

What is ServeManager Payments?

By partnerning with the payment processing company Stripe, ServeManager can allow your clients pay you directly from your provided invoices. The funds paid would be then placed inside your bank account. By making it easier for your clients to pay you, they will be more inclined to do so. In fact a survey revealed that, after turning on ServeManager payments, most of our users reduced the time to be paid to less than 10 days.

Stripe is the payment platform that major technology and internet based companies rely on. There are numerous benefits to using Stripe and funds are usually available in your Stripe account within 48 hours of receiving payment from your customers. Having a Stripe account means you don't have to have a merchant account. Stripe is a secure vault for your customer's payment information. You can use Stripe to process payments via their interface if you have a client that's paying outside of ServeManager or your website form. It's an extremely powerful platform.

The fees for processing these payments are as follows:

  • 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction from Stripe
  • 1% from ServeManager

So, if you charge $50 for a serve, $2.25 will be deducted.

How to turn on

To take advantage of these features, you'll first want to authorize the Stripe integration inside ServeManager. To do this, go to "Settings" then scroll to the bottom of that page

   "My Account" --> "Settings" --> Click "Manage" next to "Accept Online Payments" - or just click here (if you're logged in to ServeManager) 

Stripe Authorize

When you get to this page, you'll be prompted to connect your Stripe account. If you don't already have a Stripe account, you'll be sent to a page to create your account (see below). If you already have a Stripe account this step will allow you to connect your account. 

Stripe sign-up

Please have the routing and bank account number for your business handy so you can get paid. You'll also be asked for your FEIN, but that field is optional. You will also be asked about your company website. If you happen to not have a website, you can use your social media profile.

What is visible to your client

Here's what your invoices and statements will look like with the "Pay with Card" button.
