Municipality Payment Processing

Current Payment Solutions offers solutions for cities, schools, transit authorities and federal agencies to accept payments from citizens and taxpayers.  We make sure you’re always up-to-date with information on rules and regulations, EMV and PCI compliance, convenience fees, interchange management and emerging payment technologies.

 

 

Governments experience significant efficiencies while promoting financial inclusion when they distribute social benefits, collect receivables and enable services via electronic payments.

 

  • Electronic payments help safeguard against waste, fraud and abuse

 

  • Using electronic payments to deliver social benefits is more efficient and secure

 

  • Black and grey economies fueled by untraceable and untaxable cash payments flourish where electronic payments use is low

 

 

Convenience Fees
 

CPS has systems that allow you you to process via web, interactive voice response, kiosks and face-to-face models while allowing you to pass on a convenience fee.  Our systems offer flexibility to support variable and fixed fee structures as well as single and dual-transaction methods.  Our team can help you manage the convenience fee compliance requirements of all major card associations.

 

PCI Compliance 
 

CPS assists with the challenges you face as a government entity. Our Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an evolving framework designed to protect cardholder data.

 

EMV 
 

CPS will help get you up to EMV compliance standards.  EMV protects against counterfeit fraud through authentication of unique data that lives on chip cards, smart phones and other devices. It also provides risk management both online and offline. 

 

Expense Reduction
 

CPS helps you analyze public sector interchange qualifications, so your overall costs remain low.

 

Transaction Management
 
CPS offers enterprise-level access to all transaction and settlement data.
