Community-driven garage management software Garage Hive has partnered with leading online payment provider Pay360 to offer current UK customers a flexible option for payment processing.
Pay360 is a secure payment platform that specialises in seamlessly integrating within apps and third-party systems.
Garage Hive will be using Pay360 as a cost-effective solution to power the ‘Pay by Garage Link’ feature within the management system.
‘Pay by Garage Link’ enables payment requests to be sent as individual URLs generated for each specific transaction. This means customers then receive them instantly by SMS text or email so they can click, open and securely pay online.
Pay360 helps improve efficiency
Garage Hive says frictionless payment processing is integral to the efficient operations of many within its garage community.
“We have used the ‘Pay by Garage Link’ every day across all of our locations,” said Alex Lindley, Director of Lindleys Autocentres. “We use it more than once a day per garage on average so it’s part of our day-to-day processes.”
Sending individual payment links to busy customers can make it easier and faster to collect payments or deposits, saving valuable time.
“What this means in practice within any busy garage, will be reduced bottlenecks as customers wait around to pay along with less work for the garage applying these payments back into the accounts later,” said Alex. “All that reduced admin actually frees up more time for front of house staff to check customers are happy and build the relationships that keep them coming back.”
The Pay360 integration gives customers the flexibility of a pay-as-you-go provider whilst maintaining competitive rates. There’s no commitment, subscription, setup or hidden fees, along with next-day settlement on funds. Garages simply pay transaction plus percentage fees to Pay360 on each payment processed.
The integration went live during the latter part of January and uptake has been brisk amongst Garage Hive’s user community.
