Corepay stands out for its affordability, excellent service, and top-tier payment technology.

Type Of Merchant Account Features You Need

As a dentist, you will need to be able to accept payments in numerous ways. At Corepay, we are proud to offer several ways for you to accept payments, including providing your dental office with hardware.

Payment Page On Your Dental Website

A self-serve payment page offers unparalleled flexibility to dental patients, enabling them to make remote payments from the comfort of their homes using their computer or mobile device. This method is a straightforward and cost-effective way to introduce payments without requiring payment hardware. It has gained significant popularity, especially with the emphasis on practicing social distancing in payment processes. Implementation is straightforward, and our support guides you every step of the way.

Corepay specializes in these types of payments.

Payments Over The Phone

Credit card machines or a virtual terminal effortlessly facilitate phone payments. With just a few clicks, you can securely process payments. The virtual terminal enables the secure storage of patient contact information and credit card details, streamlining the payment process for returning patients. Custom-branded receipts ensure the continuity of your dental practice’s brand.

Take Payments At Your Office

Taking payments at the office is a critical and standard method for dentists to take payments. This includes standalone credit card machines, a virtual terminal, or directly integrated payments into your practice management software. These are all options that are made available through Clearly Payments.

Sending Invoices

Dentists are increasingly adopting email invoicing and payment plans for patient transactions. With payment plans, you can establish automatic recurring payments on tailored schedules for returning patients. This innovative approach reflects how dentists, with the help of Corepay, are revolutionizing the patient experience by introducing convenient and efficient payment options.

Choosing A Provider

Choosing the right provider for your dental practice’s merchant account is a crucial step that can significantly impact your business operations. You need a provider that understands the unique needs of dental practices, offers fair pricing, and has a solid reputation for customer service.

Be wary of providers with hidden fees, long-term contracts, or poor customer support. Always check the processor’s PCI compliance and security measures.

Integration with your practice management software is a plus.
