Simple, secure payments, a plan book just for schools

People’s United Merchant Services understands that running a school is different than running a business. And, while so much is different, needs are common. Providing students and parents with reliable, safe payment options is important. And whether you have simple needs that can be met by stand-alone terminals or more complex needs that can be covered with point-of-sale (POS) solutions designed to cover more, we’ll help you write the right plan book.

Allow students to pay how—and where—and on the go

This student generation is more technologically savvy than any before. They teach their parents and grandparents how to use devices. It’s pretty much that same way when it comes to their sophistication with options such as peer-to-peer payments and mobile wallets. So why would paying for school or college expenses be any different? You need an education payment processing partner that helps you power payments across devices and platforms—get more payments, fewer delinquent student accounts and more satisfied parents and students.

Payments people can relate to

From everything in payments acceptance to specialized reporting, and student and parent communication, education credit card processing can be designed to help you build relationships with students, drive loyalty and attract more students. Make it easy for students and parents to make payments to your school—and remove the hassle of in-person and paper transactions—by opting for a payments system that accepts a wide range of payment types and formats.

Features worthy of your education payment processing

When choosing a credit card services provider for your institution, here are a few things to look for:

  • Integrated payments, accepted from multiple locations
  • Easily customizable to your school’s unique needs
