Question What Do You Use for Daycare Electronic Payments?

Hi everyone! What do you guys like to use for electronic payments? I would really like to offer that option to clients but don't know what to use. I often need to change invoices a bit and do everything manually/paper printed copies right now.

Cash app and Venmo. Mainly Venmo though. Zelle is another one but I have not used it yet.

I take cash, check, or zelle. I just started taking zelle a few months ago and like it so far.

I love Zelle

It makes end of the year totals for taxes super easy too.

In a pinch last week, a parent paid me via Facebook payments. I normally only accept check, but they weren't going to be able to make it any other way. I bank at a very small, rural bank and money transfer was instantaneous.

I use the kinder lime app for "daily sheets" and parent communication. I send invoices through it as well. The parents can pay through the app. I have the option to put the small fee on their end or mine. I have it on the parents. I still accept cash and check as well.

Another poster shared this info in another thread about electronic payments. Seems like really good information to know!

I use kinderlime as invoice through there. I have the option of having the parents pay the transaction fee so it's free for me if they pay online. I still accept checks and cash for those who do not want to pay online.
