Credit Card Processing and Recurring Billings

Collect money from your customers faster and more consistently. Eliminate collections hassles.


Give your customers the ability to pay their bill on-line themselves - anytime. Customers can't "forget" to pay. Collect balances due automatically each month with the recurring - autopay features. The monthly amounts are adjusted for each customer automatically as they add classes and as other charges are applied to their accounts (for example, registration fees, costume fees, ...).
Save hours each month. Process all receivables in minutes; stop chasing customers to pay their bill. Improve your cash flow and have a better idea when revenue is coming in. Reduce your outstanding receivables balance.
Save money by not mailing paper invoices / statements. Your customers will get an email receipt each time a payment is processed. If their card fails for any reason, they will get an email notification automatically. Recoup your merchant processing fees by having the system add optional surcharges to every credit card transaction.
Credit card numbers are stored securely by a company (Vantiv Integrated Payments or Payment Express) with a Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) certified process. Helps eliminate your risk associated with storage of this sensitive data.

Security Considerations

With emerging compliance standards from different card brands, it is critical that credit card numbers are stored securely by using merchant gateways that have implemented the newest data security compliance standards of the major card associations – including CISP, PCI, and PA-DSS. The Studio Director has partnered with some of the largest, most respected merchant gateway companies that specialize in storing and keeping your customer’s credit card information secure (Vantiv Integrated Payments and Payment Express).

When evaluating software options, consider your risk of using software programs that store credit card numbers on your PC or on an Internet server that doesn’t comply with these standards. Reducing the risk of fines from the card associations or losing the ability to process cards is well worth it.

The Studio Director

PO Box 3221, Monument, CO 80132

It’s really cool to wake up in the morning and realize that a bunch of people enrolled in dance class, set up monthly payments, and paid their first session and reg fee… without talking to us on the phone. Over the next several weeks and months, we’ll add another 800 student enrollments without increasing our office staff.”
