Do business safer, faster and easier, the way consumers prefer
DALLAS, May 13, 2021 – Thryv Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:THRY), the provider of Thryv® software, the leading end-to-end customer experience platform built for growing small businesses, today announced it has launched a free ThryvPaySM app designed specifically for service-based businesses.
The app is available for download at no cost on iOS and Android devices, and transforms the way service-based businesses accept and process payments from their customers. Typically handling larger payment amounts, they can now accept safe, contactless payments in just a few simple clicks with unique built-in features that save them significant time and money.
“Our Thryv software is a complete platform for small businesses to operate in, handling more than 20 functions,” said Joe Walsh, Thryv CEO and president. “One of the most popular elements is payments. Business owners described to us the perfect payment application – so we built it. ThryvPay has been the fastest-growing payments choice within our platform. Now, for the first time, we’re making ThryvPay available as a standalone app free of charge for non-Thryv customers.”
Key features and benefits of the ThryvPay app:
More payment options with competitive rates. With the ThryvPay app, businesses can accept all major credit cards as well as ACH payments. They enjoy competitive credit card rates and money-saving ACH rates as low as $1. The ACH options are ideal for large-ticket invoices since fees max out at just $9 per transaction. Additionally, ThryvPay includes an optional integration with Plaid, free of charge, that helps everyday small business owners know that funds are available for ACH payments, at the time of payment.
Organize and manage service-based payments. App users can easily create, save and manage their paid services and schedule one-time, recurring or custom payment plans.
Generate more revenue and increase profits. The ThryvPay app allows businesses to accept tips and charge their customers automated convenience fees to offset credit card fees since they provide multiple online payment options.
Do business the way consumers prefer and get paid faster. A recent study revealed that 64 percent of consumers say they could go an entire month without cash. With ThryvPay, all payment transactions can be handled over the customer’s device, utilizing QR codes, SMS messages and email for quick payment requests.
Real-time reporting for peace of mind. Users can easily access payment activity and transaction details at any time and Thryv provides back-up support with its included dispute assistance service.
“We’re a mobile business, and having an app that has easy mobile capabilities is really nice,” said Shawn James of Opulence Transportation in Norfolk, Va. “The app is neat – it’s easy to keep up with, and I can see payments made and easily identify missing payments from clients.”
Shawn particularly liked ThryvPay’s extra features, such as adding tips and issuing refunds directly from her phone.
“Service-based small businesses have specific needs when it comes to taking payments,” said Ryan Cantor, Thryv’s VP of Product and Marketing. “I’m incredibly proud of our team of developers who worked tirelessly to create the new ThryvPay app to cater to those needs, such as managing paid services, accepting lower cost ACH payments, scheduling recurring payments and so much more.
“We created this standalone app so business owners could begin to utilize the type of business software that delivers the customer experience that today’s consumers expect. This is groundbreaking territory for both service-based businesses and the Thryv team.”
