BOSTON, MA – August 21, 2018 – Finalsite, a marketing and communication platform for the education industry, has partnered with BlueSnap, an online payments technology company, to launch Finalsite Payments, a new all-in-one payment solution for schools. By integrating with BlueSnap’s Payments for Platforms solution, Finalsite can offer its 2000+ schools a seamless and personalized way to accept payments from around the globe.
As a leading provider of integrated payment solutions for Independent Software Vendors (ISV), BlueSnap was an easy choice for Finalsite because of its intuitive integration process, global presence and range of payment acceptance capabilities. With BlueSnap’s simple on-boarding procedure, schools using Finalsite Payments no longer need to connect, code to and manage multiple payment gateways. Finalsite Payments is fully integrated with the Finalsite platform which allows its customers to begin processing payments immediately.
Finalsite Payments enables schools to personalize the payment experience for customers in 180 countries with 100 local currencies and 29 languages, all with a mobile-optimized checkout experience. To maximize online giving and facilitate event registrations, Finalsite Payments also allows schools to accept all major cards as well as more than 110 alternative payment methods, including popular eWallets, such as PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Alipay.
“Our goal at BlueSnap is to deliver products that help ISVs differentiate their software by integrating payments and creating a seamless end user experience globally, which is why we are especially excited about this partnership,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “By combining BlueSnap’s award-winning global payment capabilities with its leading marketing and communications platform, Finalsite is able to provide a best of breed solution for any school.”
