We have great news: You can now accept payments online via Halaxy!
We're thrilled to announce that Halaxy Auto Payments is now available to practitioners living in Europe.
With almost 100,000 transactions a month being processed in some countries, Auto Payments is one of the most sought-after capabilities that Halaxy offers to help you streamline your finances, save time, and get paid online for both face-to-face and remote appointments.
1. Process payments automatically
You don’t need to handle payments ever again as payments can be processed automatically whenever you have an appointment or as a batch at the end of the day.
No matter if you see the patient once or 20 times, the payment is processed without you or your patients needing to do anything - completely separating the clinical and financial relationship you have with patients.
You can also choose to click “Process” for each appointment. It’s up to you.
2. Time savings for you and your patients
By not having to handle cash or an eftpos machine, you can save 4 minutes per appointment and your patients can get on with their day - and people love it because it's similar to how they pay for utilities, the gym, or ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
3. Social distancing and telehealth friendly
Avoiding physical contact has become both crucial and challenging this year, especially with the second wave of COVID affecting many countries in Europe.
Auto Payments helps you get paid fast and securely to keep your operations running as business as usual during the outbreak and all year round. And you and your patients don't need to have physical contact with cash or an eftpos machine.
4. Send a payment link
If you don't have your patients' card details stored in Halaxy, you can also send a secure Payment link to patients so they can pay their invoice online by card.
5. Accept payments via online bookings
With Halaxy, you have the option of requesting a deposit from your patients when they make an online booking, which could be a percentage or the total fee amount.
