practiceQ Payments

intakeQ offers its own payment processor as an option in the practiceQ subscription plan, which will save you money over using Square or Stripe. It also gives you a direct link in your account to the payment management dashboard.

This is for US customers only.

Effective Rate

The processing fee rate that is shown for Square above is very likely not the effective rate you'd be paying them (the same would apply to Stripe and many other payment processors). They typically cite their best rate, but other fees end up getting added on which increases the effective rate. We do not do this, the only other fee you'd pay to us is if you get a payment dispute ($25 per dispute).

To calculate the effective rate you're paying your current processor, use the calculator on the following page:
