Seeing Payments Through Experience

Merchnt Hierarchy

Pay Theory’s Merchant Hierarchy allows you to zoom in and out of specific merchants to view detailed information or horizontally across several merchant accounts.

Trusting

Customer Experience

The magic is in our combined solution and how that solution shows up to your customers to power the growth of your SaaS platform.

1

Run of the Mill

Embedded Payments

You have workflows that you’ve crafted to get customers where you want them to be. Do you own your payments experiences or are you using an out-of-the-box solution?

2

Fragmented Data

Merchant Hierarchy

With payments, you’d have to pick one of two options to structure your payments data architecture; Manage 1 account that contains aggregated payments data or manage compartmentalized accounts for all of your merchant accounts.

3

Transactional

Customer Experience

A payment is the final point of conversion. Payments are one of the most important ways that you interact with your customers. Does your payments architecture reflect that?

Complete Payments Suite

A payment suite suited for Must-Pay services. With Pay Theory, you get features imagined and built specifically for family-service industries, a set of hard to find features, as well as everything you'd expect from a payments company. In short, Pay Theory is the payments company for your platform.

Inclusive Payments

Accept card, ACH, and cash! Digital payment solutions have made paying with cash a real problem. We work with what we call “must-pay services” to help remove barriers between families and organizations by providing payments solution built for everyone.

Information Hierarchy

Most payment solutions don’t allow you to see ‘sub-merchants’ information. For example, a school district could see what each school is doing but they wouldn’t be able to see individual transactions. With Pay Theory, they can.

Contained Systems

Every Pay Theory client is run on a unique isolated environment, causing their payment solution to be unaffected by other systems. Should one system go down, your system is untouched and keeps running smoothly.

Multiple Bank Accounts

Most payment solutions don’t allow you to associate various bank accounts per client. Now you can, with Pay Theory. This is a huge win for school systems, healthcare systems, and any other complex networks.

Underwriting

Don’t let this be a barrier to offering payments. We work with experts in fields like healthcare, pharmaceuticals, childcare, and more to ensure that we are able to safely and securely underwrite must-pay industries.

Transactional Meta-Data

Create A-ha moments by combining your data models with Pay Theory’s data models.

Tailored Implementation

More than a form! We break down implementation into 4 sections; Financial Solutions, Technical Success, Team Training, Payments Go-To-Market.

Revshare

Our SaaS partners have the opportunity to share in the payments revenue. That means not only do you get a new feature without the developmental costs, but you get a new revenue generating feature.

PCI Level 1 Compliance

Enjoy peace of mind with the highest and most stringent level of Payments Security certification (PCI level 1).

Recurring Payments

Build payment flows that get you and your customers paid more often. PayTheory’s Recurring Payments infrastructure powers your subscription, payment plan, and card-on-file payments.

The Cash Problem

1/3 of families are either unbanked or underbanked, making online payments near impossible to make. This leads to unpaid bills, barriers to access, and host of other issues. We believe SaaS platforms cannot truly make tech for family service industries without taking this issues into account.

Pay Theory’s Remote Cash feature is a game changer. It’s inclusive, drives revenue, and keeps cash handling off campuses.

Made for Developers

Accept various payment methods within your platform while giving your merchants and users a fantastic and inclusive experience along the way.

“It is important to work with technology partners that are extremely knowledgeable in their market space, have deep technical expertise, are flexible and humble enough to shift direction, build new features, and communicate effectively with their counterparts — In Pay Theory, we have been fortunate to check all of those boxes.”

Payments Made for SaaS
Payments Made Differently

We are a hyper-focused payments company built for SaaS platforms serving "Must Pay" industries: education, healthcare, childcare, etc. If you build tech for a family-service industry, then we are the payment provider for you.

How does merchant hierarchy work?

Generally speaking, we give you functionality that has traditionally been reserved for payment facilitators, where transactions are split by different tax identification numbers (EIN). Pay Theory takes these thousands of lines of transactions with various merchants and groups transactions on a customer-by-customer basis. We detangle the long list of transactions you will have with other payment providers.

What kind of data will be visible to us?

All info will be available to you with the exception of sensitive information such as card numbers. Sensitive information is encrypted and tokenized for security purposes. This removes additional burdens for our partners, protecting them from liability and security concerns.

How does customer support get handled?

We make ourselves available to our partners. When you partner with Pay Theory, you can consider us your in-house payments support team. Not only do we offer quality support to our partners, but we also support our partner’s customers.

What are embedded payments?

Simply put, embedded payments allow transactions to happen WITHIN your platform instead of sending them to a third-party payment experience. Visit our embedded payments page to learn more.

How does revenue sharing apply to our platform?

For B2B2C businesses (business-to-business-to-customer) there is potential for revenue sharing. The best way to find out how much revenue is possible for your business is by filling out the revenue project form below.
