  • VAT exempt payments

    Historically VAT handling has been difficult with premium rate payments, meaning VAT exempt services couldn't always use them.

    ImpulsePay allows for VAT exempt and zero rated transactions with Payforit, opening the doors for a range of businesses to start using mobile payments. From small startups to major print publications, many companies can benefit from our VAT exempt facility.

    Single click payments

    If a customer is browsing on a mobile data connection (3G, gprs) ImpulsePay can automatically detect the mobile number and present a single click payment screen. There is no need for a customer to enter any of their details whatsoever, they simply click the 'Buy Now' button to make the payment.

  • Embedded payment screens

    With Payforit 4 from ImpulsePay, you can now embed the payment window directly onto your website or mobile web app. This ensures customers are never directed away from your site, they can pay quickly and easily within your branded checkout environment - with the reassurance of a secure transaction.

    With Payforit 4’s new Click&Pay functionality, ImpulsePay can now send a text message with a direct link to the merchant’s payment page.

    When the customer reaches the payment page, they are presented with an auto-detect payment screen, regardless of what type of connection they are on, increasing the likelihood of a purchase.

  • Simplified Regulation

    The problems associated with Premium SMS mean that it's now heavily regulated by PhonePayPlus.

    As Payforit is a far more secure environment for consumers to pay than PSMS, the regulation is much simpler and easier, meaning far less red tape.
