San Francisco, CA -
Plastiq and Billfire partner to enable businesses to offer more payment options to their customers
Plastiq, the payment platform that enables businesses to better manage payments and cash flow, and Billfire, a leading provider of intelligent A/R automation solutions that streamline the invoice-to-cash process, partner to help suppliers and distributors get paid faster and more flexibly by allowing them to accept payments via credit card without any merchant fees. This new integration between the two companies delivers an improved, seamless experience for Billfire customers.
“The way businesses conduct financial transactions is heavily antiquated,” said Sameer Gulati, President and COO at Plastiq. “It’s time for a change, and that’s what we’ve made happen with our suite of products from Plastiq. We aim to take the guesswork out of payments for our customers, and adding Billfire to our growing list of partners means that we’re able to reach a larger group of businesses who are in need of low-cost, easy-to-use payments and better cash flow management.”
The capability to accept payment via credit card without paying a merchant fee expands electronic payment capabilities to a wider group of vendors and industries. It can also provide additional working capital to the buyers, while accelerating receivables and increasing margins for the suppliers.
“At Billfire, we seek to bring the benefits of automation in payments to our customers by helping them get paid faster, reduce risk, and eliminate time-consuming tasks,” said John Lockhart, Billfire CEO. “Partnering up with Plastiq means we’ll be able to broaden credit card acceptance for our customers, and allow them to avoid unwanted merchant fees. We are thrilled to announce this integration with Plastiq.”

Plastiq has already powered billions in payments for 1.5 million individuals and businesses.
