PaymentExpress Processes Over $1 Billion in Payments in November 2015December 1, 2015
November is a busy time for our tax collector clients as the year draws to a close and many payments become due. It’s also a busy time for Grant Street Group’s payment processing app — PaymentExpress. In November, PaymentExpress had a record month, processing over 450,000 credit card, debit card, and e-check transactions exceeding $1 billion.
“Over the last three years we’ve seen payment volume in November increase by an average of over 50% each year,” said Phil Runyard, PaymentExpress Product Manager. “With such an increase in volume, we’ve taken great care to ensure our systems can scale to meet the increased demand so our clients can provide all their citizens with the convenience of secure online payments at any time – day or night.”
Florida’s 4% discount on property tax bills paid by the end of November was a driving force behind the surge in e-payments, with over $900 million in payments coming from Florida taxpayers during the entire month. On November 30th alone, PaymentExpress processed over $125 million in payments.
