Online Payment Gateways

The PaperCut Payment Gateway Module is an additional component to provide services that allow users to transfer funds from an external source into their personal PaperCut account.

Examples of its use include:

Online Payments (credit cards, bank accounts)

Larger organization such as universities or colleges may wish to provide online payment via 3rd party services such as those provided by banks or organizations like PayPal, Authorize.Net, RBS WorldPay or CyberSource. The payment interface may be provided for internal use (e.g. for student-only use), or opened up for external access to allow parents to make payments via the web.

Student Fee/Management Systems

A number of leading higher education organizations use the payment gateway module to allow students to transfer small amounts of credit into their print account. At the end of semester/term, this amount is totalled up and added to their fees/loan. The payment gateway module can be configured to automatically debit the student management records or an external database system.

Module Options

The development team has worked hard to offer the widest range of payment options available in the print control industry. This ensures you have the choice of payment providers and the option to switch in the future.

Most module options are available under one standard price. Some options incur additional costs because of the need for custom configuration or additional development. Some providers also charge us "API access fees". Fees we incur from providers are transparently disclosed and passed on without mark-up.
