Trade professionals can offer an online payment service and get paid fast by customers, without having to invest in technology or hardware with Onlinetradesmen.
The Onlinetradesmen TradeyPay service also makes account keeping easy, which all adds up to a powerful combination that will improve business cash flow and customer satisfaction.
How Our ‘Cashless’ Payment Service Works
To enable trade professionals to manage online payments, Onlinetradesmen has partnered with the global payment market leader, Stripe.
To get started, a trade professional can simply enrol for TradeyPay free via their Onlinetradesmen membership portal, where they are then re-directed to Stripe to establish a private and secure payment account. As a regulated financial services provider, Stripe will request ID and other verification data for regulatory purposes - but this is strictly between the trade professional and Stripe.
Following signing up, tradespeople can then accept payment from any card type direct from their Onlinetradesmen membership profile or website - or send a payment request directly to their customers by email in seconds.
The service is included free for tradespeople who are members of the Onlinetradesmen service, with a small transaction fee for each payment made. Tradespeople can use the service to collect money from any customer - whether they found them through Onlinetradesmen or any other source.
Online Payment Win-Win
Nowadays, customers tend to expect payment options in every aspect of their buying experience and tradespeople who offer a convenient and secure payment service have a distinct competitive advantage over those who don’t.
Cash management can be painful and expensive for a trade professional’s business too, especially as banks move to increase the share of 'cashless' transactions made by their customers.
Enrolled Onlinetradesmen members of TradeyPay can also generate automatic payment receipts to customers and integrate payment records from the service into their accounting software for end of year returns.
Overall, it’s a win-win as property owners can pay in comfort knowing that they have extra security for their project and tradespeople can get paid instantly for their work in full or in stages.
