Please read what some of our AutoPay users have to say about the program:
“Using the ACH Payments Studio Auto Pay has saved my business! I have literally gone from about 20 hours a week doing bookwork to about 4 hours a month! It has seriously freed me to work on my business which has almost tripled since we started using the ACH System!
Christy Johnson-Dance Masters by Christy
“Hey Wayne: As we head into our busy Back-to-School season, I would just like to thank you for the excellent service you folks have provided us with. Before switching over to ACH Payments, we spent so much time and effort (read: ‘MONEY’!) chasing clients for receivables that we hardly had time for anything else. Since we switched our customers to Auto-Pay, we have found a lot more time to devote to business development. We experienced next-to-no objections about going this route, and this season you may see our activity almost double! Next year I expect my golf game to improve!! All the best, Corbit Larson, Centre Music House”
“Not only has ACH and Studio AutoPay saved me hundreds of hours this past year, but I have for the first time in 15 years I have a $0 balance for people owing me money AND I don’t feel frustration towards some of my usual late paying clients! “ACH is the best business decision I have ever made. I get ALL the money owed to me on the first of each month without any phone calls or statements sent out to students/clients. I have time to build my business, not wasting time collecting money!” Best wishes Wayne!!
Angie Ford, Terrace School of Music”

-Absolutely. All the transactions that you enter are done via a secure web site. Essentially that means you data is very safe and encrypted.
