Residents of Hartley, Iowa, have a new payment processing service, PayPort, to accept payments online and over-the-counter for the city. Through the system, credit cards, debit cards, or eChecks can be used to pay for ambulance bills, camping fees, consumer deposits, mowing and snow removal charges, building permits, tickets, and utility payments.
PayPort, provides an online channel for city government to process secure, real-time payments from citizens. The custom-tailored system gives each municipality the ability to control service items including costs. The hierarchy-based administrative module streamlines user roles and grants access to reporting features, processing transactions, and setting up additional administrative accounts.
“We want to continue to accommodate our citizens and visitors with a quick and easy online payment system,” said Patty Anderson, Hartley City Clerk, Administrator. The best part of the system is that we don’t have to worry about tracking anyone down for insufficient funds—the system takes care of that by verifying accounts and funds before completing the transaction.”
The city of Hartley partnered with Iowa Interactive, LLC of Des Moines, to provide payment processing solutions using PayPort. The new system replaces an existing system that terminates support and services May 26.
