Enabling Credit Card Payments

We integrate with the following credit card processors:

  • Stripe
  • Cybersource
  • Braintree
  • Hosted PCI

These providers remit payment twice a month and are subject to credit card processing fees. They handle the credit card information securely and allow us to remain PCI-compliant. (i.e. OpenApply does not touch or store credit card information.)

To set up credit card payments on OpenApply, please first establish an account with one of our supported providers. Login to your account with the provider to find the keys and IDs needed for OpenApply.

Applicant View - Invoices & Fees

If credit card processing has been enabled, parents with Outstanding or Past Due invoices will have the option to Pay Now.

Once the required credit card information has been entered into the form and the Make Payment button has been clicked by the parent, the credit card will be processed by the selected credit card processor. If the payment is successful, the invoice will be automatically reconciled and marked as Paid.
