Storage Units, Payment Methods and You

Payment service providers are offering new levels of convenience to self storage companies and their customers by enabling them to accept payments via a variety of online payment methods including credit card, direct debit, bank transfer and online real-time bank transfer.

In order to enable storage facilities in accepting different methods of payment, service providers connect to multiple acquiring banks, credit cards, and payment networks. Using external networks and bank accounts, they then manage these technical connections and relationships. This diminishes dependence on financial institutions for self storage companies. Some providers also process innovative online payment methods like wallets, prepaid cards, and e-checks.

Payment Method 1: Credit Card

Credit cards are payment cards issued to consumers who use them as a method of payment. Cardholders can pay for self storage charges at storage facilities that accept credit cards based on the holder’s promise to pay in the future. To accept credit cards as an online payment method, self storage companies engage the services of credit card processing providers that make the system work.

Payment Method 2: Debit Card

Debit cards or check cards are a convenient payment method for self storage customers needing an easy way to make payments. Rather than use cash, cardholders are able to pay for self storage at storage facilities that accept debit cards. To accept debit cards as an online payment method, storage facilities work with providers that process debit cards as a service.

Payment Method 3: ACH

ACH is the acronym for Automated Clearing House. The ACH method of payment uses electronic credits or debit transfers that allow self storage customers to make payments to storage facilities from their bank accounts. Most payment processors offer ACH as an online payment method to their customers for monthly and subscription-based transactions such as for the rental of storage units. Many storage facilities prefer to accept ACH payments online from their self storage customers rather than debit and credit cards.
