Now banks and their payment solution resellers can offer card and ACH ‘Pay by Text’ within the full array of payment options, all via a bank integrated technology platform


OXNARD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–November 1, 2016–

linked2pay, an award-winning banking and payments technology provider announced today that they have added ‘Pay by Text’ as an option on their Bank Centric Payments platform. This enables partners on the bank integrated platform to offer card and ACH payments via SMS text as a fully integrated, branded solution.

Already a leading option for making transfers and settling up a tab among friends, our approach extends payments by text to a broader business usage. Ideal for invoicing or donation requests, a recipient of a text clicks to access their secure wallet to complete the transaction (by card or ACH) and receives an immediate receipt.

“We recently launched HarleyPay and I can tell you that it is packed with features that we have not previously seen on one platform. The addition of payments and donations by text will be of great interest and benefit to our business and non-profit customers,” says Kirk Nellis, President of Harley Financial Services.

The ‘Pay by Text’ option joins online forms, mobile, email, virtual terminal, phone (IVR), shopping cart checkout and Remote Deposit (RDC) to give organizations a true single vendor option.

“This new feature is a prime example of how the platform helps us as a bank and our resellers to more effectively offer payment acceptance methods that keep pace with market demands,” adds Bart Murphy, Executive Vice President of Commercial Banking, Avidia Bank.

As a business payment solution, Bank Centric Payments consolidates an array of fully integrated options to accept card, ACH and RDC payments.
