FALLS CHURCH, VA – Payment Partners, Inc., the parent company of Pay4SchoolStuff.com, has announced today that they have partnered with PayGOV.us as their payment processing platform of choice. The switch to PayGOV will provide Payment Partners users, specifically users of Pay4SchoolStuff.com, with unparalleled security and functionality from a platform built to serve municipalities and government agencies.
In today’s environment of increasing reliance on digital technology and the resulting all-too-frequent data breaches, Payment Partners has made it a top priority to partner with a processing partner that will mitigate the risk by providing state-of-the-art security features, while ensuring fast and seamless processing services. With PayGOV as their processing partner, Pay4SchoolStuff users will be getting the same level of high-level security that cities, towns, and states use for their residents’ tax and utility collections.
The recent revamp of the Pay4SchoolStuff fee structure – announced earlier this month in conjunction with a new website design and versioning options – is largely a result of the new partnership between Payment Partners and PayGOV. “One of the features that drew us to PayGOV was their Convenience Fee model, which means that we are able to drastically reduce the charges passed on to our P4SS users by not being assessed additional costs for utilizing their platform,” said Payment Partners President Jay Bass.
PayGOV.US is a proven provider of merchant payment applications for both the public and private sector. Their services are carefully constructed to address needs not met by conventional products. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, PayGOV.us CEO Mike Hiatt is proud to serve over 1,000 municipal clients in 45 states.
