Fergus Pay Powered by Stripe

Fergus Pay is powered by Stripe, a secure payment gateway for processing payments from your customers so you can get paid faster and speed up your cash flow.

We've said it before - offering credit card payments means you’re going to get paid fast. Really fast.

In fact, you’ll get paid four times as fast compared with not offering your customers the option of paying by credit card*.

This is why we introduced Fergus Pay powered by Stripe - our secure credit card payment solution - offering customers a convenient way to pay due invoices using their credit card.


Get paid direct from SMS

If you sign up to Fergus Pay, all SMS and email payment reminders sent to your customers include a link for them to view and then pay your invoice using Fergus Pay.

Customers can complete payment in just a few steps, no matter where they are when they receive your reminder.

Payment reminders are a great way to make sure your invoices stay front-of-mind. They’re also going to help you collect late payments faster than ever before, giving your cash flow a boost in the right direction.


Stop wasting time chasing late payments

SMS and email payment reminders are automated so you can rest easy knowing late invoices are being taken care of.

SMS reminders are sent at the following frequency:

  1. Soon after you send the invoice to your customer;

  2. The day after the invoice is sent;

  3. 7 days after the invoice is sent;

  4. The day payment is due;

  5. Every 14 days after the payment is overdue.

Of course, reminders will only be sent for as long as the invoice remains unpaid.

Any questions? We’ve put together some FAQs to help you get started:


How do I get set-up?

Why should I use SMS and email reminders?

Late payments can kill a small business. Without enough money coming in, you might not have enough to pay your bills at the end of the month.

Set-and-forget invoice reminders help you keep on top of your cash flow. And, combined with having credit card payments on offer, you’ll get paid faster than ever before*.

Find out more tips on how to boost your cash flow.

A service fee is charged for each transaction, which you can choose to absorb yourself or pass onto your customer.
