Credit cards are pretty standard practice in the world of mental health these days. And, in my opinion, that’s a good thing.
Credit cards mean it’s easier for clients to pay for services, you can be assured that you’ll be paid, and clients can often use Flexible Spending Accounts to save money and pay for therapy.
However, credit card processing is NOT free so someone has to pay for these companies to create massive firewalls and protect our client’s personal data… but who pays?
In this video I explain you shouldn’t pass the fee on to your clients… but I also explain how to do this without losing money yourself.
Because yes, having a modern therapy practice does cost a bit more these days, but it’s totally worth it.
I mentioned IvyPay in the video and yes, if you click on the link below you’ll get $1,000 free in initial credit card fees! Yay, thanks, IvyPay!
