Your numbers may be slightly different, but that will not change the fact that the cost to take a credit card is prohibitive. In the case of reduced renewal commissions, it may even end up costing you money to write the policy!This is where we come in – Simply Easier Payments offers the only 100% legal and compliant method to remove the cost of card transactions from your agency in all 50 states.

Your customers want the option of paying with a card. Some may even need to do so. Let us make that possible for you and your customers.

Here’s how it Works:

  • When the insured calls to make a credit card payment, you tell them you have arranged for a third party – Simply Easier Payments – to handle credit card and debit card payments for you.
  • Inform the customer of the payment amount and “Service Fee” for processing
  • Enter the payment information and click “Make Payment”
  • The credit or debit card is charged in real time. Payment Made!

How do my customers make payments?

Payments can be made by

  • your staff entering the payment information for the insured over the phone
  • through our payment link on your website or mobile web app
  • in your mobile app
  • emailing the insured an electronic invoice with a payment link
  • setting up automatic billing schedules
