Owl Practice is partnered with Stripe to bring you a secure and innovative payment processing solution for practice management.
Two industry leading providers, one comprehensive solution!
Owl Practice has been partnered with Stripe since 2018 to provide private practice clinicians with a seamless payments integration that facilitates secure electronic credit card processing. We are excited to announce that we've upgraded the Stripe connection to the latest version, which will now provide clinicians the additional option of processing secure EFT (electronic funds transfer) transactions so you can bill direct from client bank accounts too!
Our aim is to make it easy for therapists to process a range of payments, so you can focus on what you do best: providing dedicated therapy to your clients.
What is Owl Integrated Payments by Stripe?
As a therapist, accepting payments from your clients is an essential part of running your business. However, managing payments manually can be time-consuming and prone to errors, and it can also come with the added stress of handling sensitive financial information.
Owl integrated payments powered by Stripe is a simple and powerful way to accept payments from directly within your Owl Practice account. The Stripe Integration for Owl is available to all clinics doing business in Canada. With it, you can accept all major credit cards and opt clients into secure PAD (pre-authorized debit agreements) to process EFT (electronic funds transfer) transactions from your customers.
