Cloud Service Consolidates Extension Program Payments

A new cloud-based payment platform is intended to help adult programs and community groups accept and process payments from multiple systems and have them accessed through one interface. Students and families can pay directly through the organization's website and payments are tracked through a single dashboard on the school side of the transaction.

Using a turnkey application programming interface, ConnexPoint from Connexeo can integrate and reconcile the payment functionality of myriad software platforms — professional development, extension programs, food service and others. The payments will be processed through a single merchant account within 10 minutes, the company reported, and funded within 48 hours.

According to the company, the online service will reduce accounting work, expedite consolidation and speed up funds collection. It's intended particularly for smaller organizations that may not have a sophisticated web store front or that lack the staff to manage multiple payment mechanisms. Set-up with ConnexPoint has no start-up or maintenance fees and no minimums.
