Consumers appreciate fast and convenient ways to pay. In fact, most of us have come to expect a variety of options. From credit cards to recurring payments, it’s important to diversify your payment acceptance options at your dance studios, music schools, or gymnastics gyms. The good news is, expanding your payment options will also provide tremendous benefits for your business. With payments powered by PaySimple, Studio Director offers an all-in-one solution that can help you accept payments in a variety of ways. Here’s how it works.
Say Goodbye To Cash And Check Payments
Gone are the days of cash registers and checkbooks. So, how are people paying for products and services today? Let’s take a look at the numbers:
- Over the last six years, ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments have increased by more than 1 billion every year
- More than 90% of U.S. adults have a credit card account
- 42% of people prefer to pay using a debit card
We’re seeing these numbers trend upwards every year as more consumers go digital for nearly everything. Consumers enroll in automatic bill pay to “set it and forget it” or they use credit cards to earn rewards. They sign up for mobile payment options, like Apple Pay or Venmo. All of these types of payment methods also provide the convenience of online bookkeeping and digital receipts.
With so many benefits, it’s no wonder more people enjoy having flexible payment options everywhere they go.

In addition to easy registration, marketing, and communication tools, Studio Director is proud to partner with PaySimple to bring our clients the very best in payment solutions.
Our collaboration with PaySimple makes it easier for you to accept a variety of payment options at your studio.
Accept credit and debit cards
Whether your customers prefer debit or credit, it’s an easy way to quickly pay whenever, wherever.
Allow your customers to pay at their convenience using an online customer portal. You’ll also enjoy credit card processing in the studio. The best part? Every payment method—from online to IRL—is integrated, which means you see all of these important records in one place.
What’s more, Studio Director and PaySimple work together to provide safe and secure transactions.
With data breaches and identity theft on the rise, this is essential for being able to accept payments via credit and debit cards. We ensure PCI compliance at every step to keep your customers’ information secure. You can rest easy knowing the important information your customers provide is in a safe place.
Set up automatic ACH transactions
With ACH payment processing, you can reduce the number of processing fees you pay, while your customers can automate future payments.
How does it work?
An ACH transaction is the electronic transfer of funds from one bank account to another using the Automated Clearing House. Think of it as a highway connecting thousands of banks across the country. It’s fast, secure, and affordable.
No matter how unique your billing schedule is, ACH billing offers flexibility. Customers can authorize payments for varying or recurring amounts.
