An Overview

Why We Proudly Offer Solutions for Veterinarians and Pet Related Businesses

Humans love their pets, and as such take the health of pets very seriously. Veterinarians provide a much needed service when they help animals stay healthy. Whether it’s helping a dog get over an ear infection, giving a cat its shots, or anything in between… Vets do important work.

In order to be effective as a practitioner of veterinary medicine, it’s helpful to have the business side squared away. Vets have busy schedules filled with appointments, treatment and more. There’s a lot to focus on, which can be overwhelming. That’s why Soar Payments helps take the complexity out of the payments side of the veterinary trade.

Whether you’re processing transactions in an office setting, on the go, or even potentially online, Soar Payments offers merchant account solutions for vets. Our extensive relationships with credit card processors and sponsor banks who have the capability to underwrite regulated industries, in addition to our integration of chargeback and fraud prevention software, uniquely positions Soar Payments to provide retail, and online veterinary businesses with stable, effective, long term credit card processing solutions.

Types of Veterinary Merchant Accounts

Soar Payments offers a full-array of merchant accounts to online, brick-n-mortar, and other businesses in the vet industry. These include:

Retail Payments

A retail merchant account for veterinarians enables businesses to accept face-to-face debit and credit card payments via a traditional credit card machine or point of sale system.

Ideally suited to veterinary office setting with reliable internet access, retail apparel credit card processing accounts typically have the lowest chargeback and fraud risk and as a result are afforded the lowest credit card processing pricing.

Mobile Payments

A mobile merchant account for veterinarians enables your business to accept face-to-face credit and debit card payments via a swiper (included with each account) that plugs into your mobile phone or iPad.

Appropriate for businesses that frequently conduct face-to-face sales outside of the office, such as vets who offer home visits, mobile accounts are priced similarly to retail, due to their lower chargeback risk.

Virtual Terminal Payments

Also called a payment gateway merchant account, a virtual terminal enables businesses to accept payments over the phone, via mail, or typed into a computer (without needing outside equipment). They also have invoicing solutions which allow the merchant to email an invoice to the customer, which they can pay online.

A veterinarian payment gateway account is ideal for businesses that accept payments over the phone, or via mail order. Virtual terminal payments are particularly vulnerable to fraud, therefore Soar Payments offers integrated chargeback protection.

eCommerce Payments

An eCommerce apparel merchant account allows you to accept credit card payments via your website’s online shopping cart.

Our eCommerce credit card processing accounts integrate seamlessly with most major payment gateways and shopping cart software, making setup simple. If you’re selling pet supplements or other products online, this would be ideal. Online veterinarian payments are vulnerable to fraud and chargebacks, consequently, we offer pre-integrated fraud protection technology.
