About Payments Options in Handshake

Shelby Marter -

There are several options for configuring payments in Handshake. Use this article to configure the payment option that works best for your school.

Manual vs Card Payments

There are two options for taking payments from employers for fees charged.  You can accept either manual or credit card payments.
 

Manual payments

Any payments made by employers to schools through any method other than credit card (handled through any of the processing options outlined below) are considered "manual" payments. This includes checks, money orders, wire transfers, or in-person credit card use.

Credit card payments

All card payments in Handshake are handled through the following external, third-party payments processors. This enables your school to accept payments from employers and students online, without having store any credit card information.

 

Card Payment Processing Options 

Handshake supports the following payment processing integrations: 

CASHnet

If your school already uses the CASHnet, you can add your account integration details into your Handshake Payment Preferences. Follow the guidelines in the following article:

TouchNet

If your school already uses the Touchnet, you can add your account integration details into your Handshake Payment Preferences.Follow the guidelines in the following article:

Stripe: (recommended)

If your school is not already using either TouchNet or CASHnet, we highly recommend that you setup a Stripe account to process card payments (TouchNet and CashNet can have high first-time implementation fees). Stripe is an online transaction service that enables schools using Handshake to accept payments online. If you’d like to learn more about Stripe, please visit their website.
