Forte ACH and Credit Card Processing Information (server)

Did you know that you can do automatic monthly charges or ACH withdrawls with VitaLogics by using the Forte merchant account? In addition, when using Forte, the patient's credit card payment will automatically be posted to the patient's file when the card is swiped.  VitaLogics encrypts your patient's credit card number so that the user will only be able to view the last 4 digits of any credit card number in the software.  The credit card processing fees are comparable to other companies in the market with the added benefit of streaming your process of collecting patient payments.  The Forte merchant account is also DSS-PCI compliant. 

 

Below are the fees to integrate your payment processor with the VitaLogics Software system:

Option 1 - Credit Card Processing service ONLY -  $10.00 per month.

Option 2 - Both Credit Card Processing + ACH - $19.95 per month.

These fees cover the data integration and data transfer from the VitaLogics server to the credit card processing interface and will be processed each month via ACH from CoAction.  

Forte will deduct a monthly service fee of $9.95 per month. This fee covers a membership fee and monthly statement fee.  This fee, along with their per transaction fee will be processed via ACH directly from Forte.
