In a monumental break in tradition, the Oregon State Bar is currently promoting a member discount for LawPay credit card processing through the month of July. Here are the details as posted on the OSB Web site:
It is critical for attorneys to handle transactions between their trust and operating accounts correctly. With LawPay, law firms can accept credit cards with confidence, because a LawPay account is structured to handle the unique requirements of a lawyer’s obligations regarding client funds. As a result, LawPay is offered by 37 state and 49 local bar associations, including the Oregon State Bar. Oregon attorneys who use LawPay will receive reduced processing rates, multiple features for the client-attorney transaction, and a level of personalized service not easily found elsewhere. The LawPay contract is month-to-month and all standard fees associated with opening a merchant account are waived for OSB members. With discounted fees, users can save up to 25% off standard credit and debit card fees. Plus, if you open a LawPay Merchant Account in the month of July 2013, we will waive the standard $150 virtual terminal fee and also waive the program fee for three months.
