Refundo, a provider of tax-related products and services, has announced a new partnership with payments innovator Stripe to allow tax offices across the country to instantly accept credit card payments through Refundo’s online platform.
“We’re always on the lookout for new ways to streamline the tax preparer’s workflow and create new opportunities to increase sales,”said Roger Chinchilla, co-founder and CEO of Refundo. “Setting up a merchant account is a lot more time consuming, expensive, and confusing than it needs to be. With today’s announcement, we’ve made it easy for tax professionals everywhere to set up their own accounts to accept credit card payments instantly with Refundo.”
Refundo’s proprietary technology integrates with the professional tax preparer’s existing workflow and software. But because of this partnership with Stripe, tax preparers can now process credit card payments right from the Refundo Dashboard. Credit card payments are charged at Stripe’s standard pricing of 2.9% + USD0.30 per transaction.
“We’re very excited about working with Refundo to deliver a simple and elegant way for tax professionals to accept payments without all the traditional hassles,” said John Collison, president and co-founder of Stripe.“From security and compliance to transaction tracking and daily deposits to their bank accounts, Stripe handles the heavy-lifting for busy tax offices.”
