DENVER , CO , March 1, 2007- PaySimple, an industry-leading provider of payment management solutions for businesses, today announces a partnership with Starting-a-Martial-Arts-School.com, a martial arts school and business consultant, to offer affordable business solutions to existing and start-up martial arts schools.
Martial arts schools face unique business problems including marketing, pricing, supply purchasing, and accounts receivables. Michael Massie, owner and chief editor of Starting-a-Martial-Arts-School.com, draws on his experience as a martial arts school owner to publish his website that is dedicated to giving start-up and established martial arts schools the tools to succeed.
One common issue Massie often addresses is billing and collections. Schools typically have to decide whether they want to spend the time to handle it in-house, or lose a significant percentage of revenue to outsource it to a third party. PaySimple offers the best of both worlds by providing an in-house solution that can completely automate the billing and collections process, without significantly affecting incoming cash flow.
"PaySimple has automated the way we collect our own membership fees and significantly simplified our accounts receivable processes," said Massie. "We recommend PaySimple to other martial arts schools as an affordable solution to tuition billing and collection."
"We are pleased to partner with Starting-a-Martial-Arts-School.com and help new companies start conducting business with optimal processes," said Eric Remer, CEO of PaySimple. "With its recurring billing and online payment features, PaySimple offers superior functionality with minimal cost, which is ideal for a new business."
PaySimple's recurring billing function allows a martial arts school to automatically debit monthly tuition fees from students on a recurring schedule without any manual invoicing or billing. The merchant simply enters the transaction information into the online gateway once, and subsequently the electronic debits are performed and deposited into the merchant's bank account automatically. The system even emails an automatic receipt to the student each time a debit is performed. PaySimple also enables martial arts students to pay tuition fees online or implement their own recurring payment schedules via a secure web form, custom branded for the martial arts school.
