Simplify Payment Processing

Payments is an integrated, cloud-based solution that makes it easy for the public sector to accept payments both online and over the counter for bills, fees, tickets, and fines. It manages all aspects of merchant services, including onboarding, shopping cart, check-out, fee handling, and receipts. Payments features:

  • A flexible fee structure with no subscription or licensing costs

  • Elimination of the need for custom integrations from third-party providers

  • Streamlined reviews of payment details with administrative transaction and reconciliation tools

  • Wide acceptance of payment methods, including ApplePay®, credit cards (such as Amex®), and eChecks

No Subscription or Licensing Costs

Payments has a flexible fee structure with no subscription or licensing costs, meaning you can provide predictable rates for your online payers – whether you pass the fees along or absorb them.

Improved Payment Processing

A cloud-based, multi-tenant application, Payments is positioned for minimal maintenance and maximum availability. It requires very little training and no on-site technical installation. Payments makes it possible to:

  • Maintain a single vendor relationship for payment processing.
  • Enjoy better oversight. Easily review payment details with administrative transaction and reconciliation tools.
  • Save on mailing costs with paperless billing and emailed receipt options.

A Better Payment Experience

Integrating seamlessly with Tyler products, Payments allows community members to pay bills, review past billing and payment history, and see real-time balance information on all open accounts. Community members can pay as a guest, or they can register and benefit from access to account history and streamlined connectivity. From any device at any convenient time, they can pay:

  • Utility bills
  • Court fees
  • Property taxes
  • Tax bills
  • Parking tickets
  • Licensing and permit fees

    Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment
