What are embedded payments?

Across every vertical – from salons that manage inventory and book clients to plumbing companies that juggle schedules for technicians in the field – businesses are increasingly managing their operations using purpose-built software platforms.

What do embedded payments look like?

Software companies often work with entrepreneurs and small business owners. These customers may have limited resources for dealing with multiple vendors and business processes.

Their status as trusted business partners – and the simplicity of a payment offering embedded within a business’s software – makes them attractive payments partners.
