Credit card processing:
Credit for Comfort offers credit card processing powered by Clearent -- a fast, secure, and reliable payments processor integrated into the Credit for Comfort platform to help contractors process credit card payments easily by sending their customers an EasyLink. Our credit card processing is digitally processed without the need for a card reader.
As of August 17, 2022, our standard credit card processing rates are as follows:
2.99% for card entered online by the customer via an invoice emailed or texted to them using Easylink + a $0.30 per transaction fee.
Standard Processing time for credit card payouts:
Up to 72 hours
PCI Compliance Training:
Federal law requires that any vendor offering credit card processing must complete PCI compliance training once per year.
After you apply and are approved to process credit card payments powered by Clearent, you have 25 days to complete a PCI questionnaire training. You can access the PCI questionnaire from the Clearent Merchant Home Portal (https://pg.clearent.net/ui/home). Once you complete the questionnaire you are done with your training.
Please keep in mind that if you do not complete your PCI questionnaire 25 days from signing up, you will be charged a $34.95 monthly penalty fee that will repeat every billing cycle until you complete your PCI questionnaire.
