Frequently Asked Questions

What are embedded payments?

Embedded payments are when payment functionality is embedded directly within a software platform, so clients do not need to integrate with another service to accept payments.

What are my options for embedding payments?

A few different models exist. You may be able to implement no- or low-code platform models without development help, but development resources are typically needed for implementations that have more customizable options. Depending on the model that you choose, your payments can be up and running in a day or two, or if you choose a more customizable model, a few months. You may also choose different fee structures, such as revenue sharing or buy rate.

How does embedding payments with a third-party partner work?

Using an embedded partner involves signing on with a partner that has developed embedded payments technology that your clients can access through your platform. The embedded payments partner will typically handle compliance, onboarding and customer support, depending on how you would like to structure the partnership.
