AutoPay Solutions

Easily Accept and Manage Single or Recurring ACH and Credit Card Payments from a Single User-Interface.


Automated Payment Initiation & Processing

The landscape of electronic payment options continues to evolve at an ever-increasing pace. Today's customers (B2C and B2B alike) are increasingly seeing new convenient and contactless payment options enter the payments landscape. The unfortunate truth is that many businesses still have outdated and inefficient methods and systems for accepting, processing and posting electronic payments from their customers. 

FTNI's ETran Autopay solutions facilitate automatic ACH and credit/debit card payments based on customers' unique payment terms and open invoices. AutoPay delivers configurable, automated payment parameters on a customer-by-customer basis, as well as the ability to send proactive payment reminders detailing the invoices to be paid and upcoming payment draft dates.

AutoPay seamlessly integrates with FTNI's integrated receivables platform, ETran, to provide complete oversight of all payment activity across your A/R organization. Users can access all incoming data through ETran's unique configurable ledger columns, with the added benefit of convenient, secure access to payment data for posting to your back-office system(s).

Highly-Configurable Automated Payments 

ETran's AutoPay solutions automate the traditionally manual and time-consuming processes surrounding the initiation, invoice matching, and cash application of one-time or recurring payments.

Especially powerful for industries where recurring payments are the same each month, but perhaps even more valuable for businesses where invoice amounts continuously change, AutoPay enables users to configure payment rules and timeframes within clicks. 

Highly-configurable based upon unique payment parameters, customers are able to set up payment initiation/automatic withdrawals on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc. basis. Additionally, users enjoy the ability to customize the timing of notification emails prior to payments being drafted. These reminder emails can include information such as the number of invoices to be paid, invoice dates and payment amount.

ETran AutoPay:
How It Works 

Powerful, automated payment initiation, acceptance, processing and posting from a single, truly integrated receivables platform. 

Automated initiation, processing and posting of invoice-driven varied amounts or static amounts. Configurable on a customer-by-customer basis, ETran AutoPay facilitates automatic recurring ACH/EFT and/or credit/debit card payments based on unique payment terms and open invoices.

Deliver your customers with personalized email notification reminders for upcoming payments to be processed. Email notifications are white labeled with your branding.

Recurring payments can be setup to pay open invoices on a daily, weekly, monthly, or bimonthly basis. Users can further tailor payment timing by selecting a specific day of the week for payments to be initiated. In the event that multiple invoices need to be paid outside of a customer's normal recurring payment schedule, business rules can also be configured to initiate payment(s) for invoices with due dates within a specific time period.

As is consistent with all modules on the ETran platform, ETran's AutoPay solutions maximize flexibility and scalability within your A/R operations by working with your existing bank(s), merchant processor, and back-office systems.

Having an agnostic system means you don’t have to change platforms or rebuild existing processes as your business, financial or back-office technology needs change today, tomorrow and years into the future.

Achieve true straight through processing of your AutoPay remittances thanks to ETran's ability to seamlessly integrate with any back-office system in either batch or real-time to streamline and automate cash application.
