International Bancard understands, more than ever, you need as many ways as possible to collect payments from your clients and customers. Our integrated, online bill payment solutions allows businesses to manage their accounts receivable online, generate and distribute email invoices, and receive electronic payments – without the additional costs of maintaining a separate website or purchasing expensive accounting software.
It is important to understand, embrace, and even encourage near-field communication (aka NFC) payments. NFC is a technology allowing cardholders the ability to make payments with their credit card without needing to touch the payment device. Most credit card devices support NFC and have NFC technology enabled by default.
