Credit card payments are a convenient way to exchange funds. (Virtual Card Payments are a separate method. Click here if you have received a Virtual Card number via email and have questions)
Stripe is our merchant card service provider. Click here to learn more about Stripe.
The Stripe fee for credit card transactions is incurred by the company receiving the funds.
To Receive credit card payments via Viewpost:
*If you enable credit card payments it will look like the preferred method of payment to the person receiving your invoice. On the invoice it will clearly allow them to enter their credit card number, where as paying with a bank account will require them to register for Viewpost.
For best results, do these steps before sending an invoice to a customer.
- Select your Company Name from the upper right hand corner
- Select Payment Methods
- Select 'Enroll' next to Accept Credit Card Payments
- Fill out the Stripe Registration form (If you already have a Stripe account you may just sign in)
- Once you have submitted the completed form your Viewpost account should read 'Connected to Stripe'
- The person sending a credit card payment does not have to register for Viewpost, or enroll in Stripe, but you do need to enable them to pay via credit card on the Network tab. (See Below)
You are now enabled to accept credit card payments.
Now select the customers you are willing to accept credit card payments from.
Follow the steps below to enable a customer to pay via credit card:
