Advanced Credit Card Processing
Credit Card Processing thru our new clearing house (Z-Pay by Zirmed)
• In most cases, the merchant fees will be less than or equal to what you are paying today. (we will provide quotes)
• Credit cards are processed thru the internet – no need for separate phone lines
• Credit cards can be accepted by your staff or ours
• Accepts “Automatic Payment Plans” when patients want to make monthly payments
• Credit card information can be entered using a card swiping device or keyed directly onto the screen
The market place has changed
As larger portions of the practice’s income are paid by the patients, it’s more important than ever for the practice to secure
these payments, especially at the time of visit. As the patient’s portions increase, (in many cases by hundreds of dollars or
more) patients are demanding more payment options and greater payment flexibility from their providers.
Traditional credit card transactions were processed via a credit card machine, for the full amount owed only, and typically
require a phone line to work.
Advanced Credit Card Processing Solutions
Ashron’s credit card processing solution can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection (with or without
a card swiper). Another benefit is that Ashron’s Staff along with yours will be able to accept credit cards on your behalf
(funds will always be deposited directly into your bank account).
Patients may also use our credit card solution to pay their statements on-line by opting to receive their statements
electronically (E-Statements) and then clicking on the “Pay Now” link, or by using the link provided on their statements.
Credit card receipts can be printed out or emailed. Click the Printer icon to print or the Email icon to email. If the email was
clicked, the receipt will automatically be saved in PDF format and automatically attach itself to the email. Just type the
email address (or addresses) and click send.
Automatic Payment Plans
Another option is automatic payment plans. At the time the credit card is processed, one can setup a payment plan (per
your practice’s guidelines to be established) including the number of payments, how often the card will be charged, and so
forth (setting up a payment plan is very easy to do). Once setup, the patient’s credit card will be automatically charged per
the plan. The patients can also get a text a day or two prior to their card being charged as a courtesy reminder. (you can
setup the number of days for advanced notice) Once the balance is paid off, their card will no longer be charged.
After a payment plan was created, staff can immediately print out (or email) a payment plan agreement that clearly
provides the payment plan’s details.
If your practice has never accepted credit cards before and you are in the market for merchant services, you will find our
merchant’s fees very competitive. If you are already accepting credit cards, we will attempt to meet or beat your current
merchant services’ provider fees. All you have to do is provide us with copies of 2 or 3 of your most recent merchant
services statements and we will provide you with a written quote from our merchant services provider listing their fees.
