Credit card processing:
Housecall Pro offers credit card processing through Stripe - the industry leader for processing payments that uses bank level security.
All cards processed through Housecall Pro and Stripe are encrypted on disk with AES-256. The decryption keys are stored on a separate device. This means that as soon as a customer's card is scanned using the Housecall Pro mobile app or input into the Housecall Pro web portal, it is secured and unretrievable by the user.
As of March 18, 2020 our standard credit card processing rates are as follows:
2.59% for when the card is swiped, tapped, or chipped with our card reader
2.99% if the card is entered online by the customer via an invoice emailed to them
3.49% when the card details are manually entered or scanned with the app or entered by your staff in the web portal.
Standard processing time for credit card payouts: 2 business days
Note: If you are processing your first payout, it may take up to 5-7 business days for the deposit to reach your account
We also offer Instapay, which allows you receive credit card payments in 30 minutes, for an additional 1% fee on top of any of the fees listed above.
