Introducing Touchless Payments for the COVID era. Nowadays, customers want to make payments in a way that is both convenient, secure and germ-free. Touchless payments allows customers to make payments to your business without being concerned about handling physical currency.
Payments as simple as sending a text
Getting paid for curbside pickup or delivery has never been easier. Just enter your customer’s phone number and get paid, it’s as simple as that. No more taking credit card information over the phone. Best of all you can add convenience fees and give customers the option to include a tip.
Collect without the contact
Physical contact with strangers is a no-no. Customers want a way to make payment that is both convenient and germ-free. With Touchless Payments by PruPay, your customers can make payments securely without worrying about the safety and well-being of their families.
Show your customers you care
Recent events have made payments challenging. Customers want to keep a safe distance and employees don’t want to handle money. Mobile payments are effective, but complex and don’t work will for brick and mortar stores.

All funds are instantly transferred into your PayPal Business account when they are processed by your customer. You may use your PayPal Business account to make payments to other businesses or vendors, or you may transfer your funds to your bank account at no charge using standard transfers (usually takes one to two days.) or pay a small fee for PayPal’s instant transfer service (currently 10% of the transfer with a maximum of $10.00.)

During the COVID-19 crisis we are waiving all fees for the first 90 days after you create your account. After that, we will charge ten cents ($0.10) per transaction or 10% of the convenience fee (whichever is higher.) When you sign up for PruPay Touchless, you will need to sign up for a PayPal Business account if you don’t already have one. PayPal charges their normal fees for PruPay Touchless transactions.
YES! On their screen, your customer will see a slide bar for tips. It is defaulted to 10%, but can be slid left to 0 for no tip and up to 25% in increments of 5%. Whatever the tip, it is itemized and immediately/automatically added to the total tab as a line item before the tab is sent to PayPal for payment. Tips show up on your merchant dashboard and in your PayPal business account as separate line items so you can easily account for them and pay your employees.
YES! When you set up your account, you can designate a delivery charge. When you request payment, all you need to do is check the box that indicates “Delivery?” and that charge will be added to the customer’s total on their bill. When linking to their payment page your customer will see an itemized tab that includes their total, the delivery charge and the convenience fee.
That depends on you. If each location has banking relationships that you need to keep separate or if you need to track orders by location, each location will need its own Touchless account. If all of your banking rolls up to one account, you can apply once and use your sign-on page at each location to request payments.
