Make & Save Money

Family-facing organizations have uniquely varied types of payments needs and they need to collect on all of them! You have a spirit or uniform store running on WooCommerce. You have PTAs and athletic boosters who are working mostly in cash. You need to accept donations in any format and get those funds to a teacher or coach. And you still need to track all this in one place. Pay Theory’s unified payments platform works across your vendors to provide a one-stop-shop to accept payments wherever you need while allowing your families to pay however they need. Add new vendors and keep all payments in one place.

Secure

Where children and family identities are concerned, security matters. Pay Theory maintains strict identity and cardholder protection protocols (PCI compliance and certification). Additionally, the code behind our payments deploys state of the art encryption and we have a few data tokenization tricks up our sleeve. On the back end, we work with proven, tested financial technology partners like Finix, Vanilla Direct and FIS/Worldpay.
