When you factor in the time and materials required to send, receive and process each paper-based check, the costs quickly add up. Many organizations spend anywhere from $4 to $20 for every check received. How can you more easily accept donations for your nonprofit organization?

4 Ways to Keep Customers Satisfied With Payment Options

Posted on Mar 14, 2017
The “pain of paying” is a well-understood concept within behavioral economics. Customers love buying products and services, but they don’t enjoy the actual process of handing over money. This is why casinos use chips and many businesses use credit cards. These monetary substitutes help to mitigate loss aversion and direct the user’s focus on the actual value received. Yet, by making payment processing easier, faster and more secure, you can reduce the pain of paying even more. That way, your customers will remember the experience — and not the annoying invoice.
