Credit Card Processing
Accepting credit cards from your clients is easy with Time To Pet. Payments processed through Time To Pet are automatically applied to the client's invoices and, if your account is connected to Quickbooks, automatically synced to Quickbooks.

Charging A Client's Credit Card
To charge a client's credit card, first, navigate to their client profile from the Administrator’s dashboard.
- Log in to your Dashboard.
- Using the sidebar navigation, select Clients.
- Click the name of the Client you wish to charge.
Alternatively, use the search bar next to your notification icons to find your client.
If you have linked to payment processor successfully, you will see a new option under Quick Actions to "Charge Client".
- You will be taken to the client's payment page. On this page, you will notice three separate tabs:
Payment – Contains a list of all invoices that still require payment.
Payment History – See a complete list of all payments this client has been charged.
Payment Methods – Manage the list of saved card details for the client.
Charging The Client's Card
A charge must be applied against one or more invoices. You will notice the payment tab lists all of the client’s unpaid invoices. To start, set the amount to apply to each unpaid invoice. Once you have set the amount to pay on each invoice, click "Proceed To Payment Details".
If the client has saved cards, you can select that card, or you can enter a new card’s details. When you're ready to submit the payment, click the "Submit Payment" button.
Clients Can Submit Payment From The Portal
You do not have to submit payment for all of your clients; that would be time-consuming and tedious. Clients can submit their own payments from their portal. Just like in the admin dashboard, they can apply payments to one or more invoices and can use saved card details or enter new ones.
Important Note Regarding ACH Payments: If a client would like to add their bank account for ACH payments, they must do this when paying their first open invoice through the portal. After their bank account has been verified and added to the portal, it can then be saved as a payment method to use on the mobile app and portal going forward. Here is a help article for clients on making payments using ACH: Making Payments With ACH.
A Note On Credit Card Security
Time To Pet never stores or logs any of your client's credit information (other than the last four digits). We only integrate with payment processors that support remote storage of credit card information for the highest level of security. In other words, all of your client's credit card information is handled by your payment processor and not by Time To Pet. This limits both Time To Pet’s and your liability.
