The WPM Payment Platform provides the framework for a complete and totally integrated system through which all of your university's or college's incoming online and electronic payments can be routed.
Payment Gateway functionality
Online payments, processed with maximum efficiency
With the WPM Payment Gateway, there are no limits to the type of online payments that can be accepted. From credit card payments, through PayPal, to Direct Debits, you will be able collect and process payments with maximum efficiency - saving time and money on every transaction.
Our Payment Gateway enables every part of your institution to take advantage of the benefits of centralised payment processing, in terms of efficiency and access to management information.
In addition, the system will enable you to provide devolved access to specific payment pathways to departments or individuals within your institution.
Advanced payment options
In addition, the system can be configured to deliver a high level of customer service by offering even more advanced options, such as deferred, instalment or recurring payments.
Your college or university will have the ability to securely store and process credit and debit cards, which can easily be set up for customers to pay by instalment or recurring date-specific payments. Post-dated cheques will be a thing of the past.
Using a web-based administration tool, you will also be able to create and amend payment instructions, generate correspondence, and view reports.
