4 APA... Where Psychology Connects
Energizing Your E-Billing Efforts
Bill Payment Portal (BPP) is a simple, secure and affordable
electronic bill presentment and payment solution that allows a
business to upload and electronically present customer invoices
and bills through an easy-to-use online portal; in return their
customers’ credit card and ACH payments are made by visiting
the biller’s payment page. Bill Payment Portal is perfect for
any small to medium sized business that provides a product or
service for which they regularly send invoices to customers for
services rendered. This is not a solution for merchants selling
goods or services online.
For the merchant it is as simple as uploading their customer
billing file, communicating to their customers that bills are
ready to be paid online and monitoring incoming payments.
The customer simply goes to the website, clicks “make a payment”
and, once complete, receives an electronic receipt confirmation.
Bill Payment Portal allows you to accept payments via credit,
signature debit cards and Electronic Check/ACH (Automated
Clearing House) payments in response to receiving notification
that a bill is due. ACH debits a customer’s bank (checking or
savings) account using the routing and account number.
