PSD Citywide Welcomes Paymentus as New Payments Partner
Payment Processing firm to provide secure online payment processing within the Citywide Permitting solution, supporting permit and license fee collection.
London, Ontario & Charlotte, North Carolina – October 12, 2023 – PSD Citywide® is pleased to announce its new partnership with Paymentus®, a leading provider of secure online payment processing. This new relationship will provide new and existing clients of the Citywide Portal, an enhanced feature of PSD Citywide’s ePermitting solution, with fast and secure payment processing of fees related to planning, licensing, and permitting applications. Paymentus is one of several new providers offering integration with Citywide Permitting, the most comprehensive cloud-base ePermitting solution for municipal planning, permitting, and licensing.
Paymentus will provide secure payment processing for all permitting, planning, and licensing fees accessible through the Citywide Portal. Launched earlier this year, municipalities can deliver a better experience for residents and applicants with a new citizen portal that is part of the new Citywide Permitting solution. Here, in addition to being guided step by step through the application process, applicants can submit, pay for, and manage applications online. Paymentus, whose platform processes 195 Million transactions for more than 16 Million monthly consumers and business users, is the first official payment integration partner for the Citywide Permitting solution.
“We are pleased to be welcoming Paymentus as our first payment processing integration partner”, commented Peter Scott, Chief Technology Officer at PSD Citywide. “Not only do they provide fast and reliable payment processing, they are also very much dedicated to delivering a great customer experience, something we value here at PSD Citywide. This makes them a great fit for our growing network of integration partners within the Citywide Platform.”
Beyond offering the widest range of payment channels, communication tools and payment methods available today, Paymentus is also focused on delivering the highest degree of security for their clients. Their Level-1 PCI Compliant EBPP platform ensures that all electronic payments are secure and meet industry standards. This, combined with the robust offering of planning, licensing, and permitting tools within Citywide Permitting makes the new partnership a win-win for municipalities seeking to modernize their processes and deliver a better overall citizen experience.
