Government Entities Can Email or Text Up to 1,000 "Instant Invoices"
at Once with Access Idaho's Prompt Pay Service

Access Idaho's newest service, Prompt
Pay
, has been enhanced to enable government entities in the Gem
State to send payment links in bulk via SMS text and email at the click
of a button.

Prompt
Pay
's bulk upload functionality lets government personnel upload as
many as 1,000 names at a time using a csv or Excel file, ideal for any
office that wants to submit "instant invoices" electronically to
multiple customers.

Files can contain different names, amounts, payment descriptions, unique
identifiers, email addresses and cell numbers, allowing government
entities to customize each text or email to customers' specific
payments. Each customer can then use the link they receive to pay the
government service.

Since payees are responsible for entering credit card information on
their own devices or computers, government employees and systems are
completely removed from exposure to credit card data as well as Payment
Card Industry scope.

In addition to individual and bulk payment requests, Prompt Pay features
comprehensive administrative tools, including resending, editing and
canceling payment requests. Prompt Pay's exportable reports provide
government entities important monitoring information, such as when
payment links were sent, the number of times a customer attempted to pay
and even failed payments.

A growing number of state agencies and local governments are using
Prompt Pay to collect outstanding balances from customers. For example,
the Idaho Department of Transportation utilizes it for periodic data
requests; the Idaho Supreme Court has implemented the service for its
party verification requests; the City of Meridian relies on Prompt Pay
for taking building permit payments; and the City of Heyburn uses it for
utility payments.

Prompt Pay uses a highly secure, best-in-class processor for Visa,
MasterCard, AMEX, Discover and electronic check payments. For more
