Most local and state government offices have a need for rapid and efficient collections, including the need to accept credit and debit cards. However, most government offices do not have a budget to pay credit card processing fees. Goodpaster Merchant Solutions makes it simple to accept credit and debit cards for tax payments, fines, registrations, licenses, utility bills, traffic citations, and much more.

How It Works

Accept Payments Anywhere, Anytime

Empower your customers to pay their bills in person, over the phone, or online and by credit card, debit card, or ACH/eCheck. By providing every possible payment method to your customers, your organization will accelerate receivables and experience smoother cash flow, and your customers will have a better payment experience because they will have the option of choosing their preferred payment type.

Manage Your Payments

Enabling your customers to pay their bills anywhere and anytime is only half of the payment processing equation. Managing those payments and researching information is crucial to your overall success. Our dashboard provides you with a "scoreboard" to view how many payments and how much volume has been processed through the system. View the payment trend graph to see if your organization is increasing or decreasing in revenue volume. Our dashboard research capability, along with the void and refund process, provides your staff with simple, yet robust, management tools.

View Reports

Reconciling your payments to your bank account is an absolute must. If clerks and accountants are not happy because they do not have enough data or the data does not match up, no one wants to use the system, regardless of how good it is at accepting payments. Our reports provide your staff with the appropriate amount of data they need to reconcile easily. We are so confident you will like our reports that if you don't, we will build you a customer report for FREE.
