To support the healthiest, most reliable cash flow, your law firm’s billing and payments process must include three technologies.

The first is an online payment solution, so you can easily and securely accept payments from clients. The second is a mobile payment app and Bluetooth reader/swiper so you can manage payments on the go. And the third is a QR code connected to a custom, secure payment page.

In addition to driving revenue, using QR codes to accept payments can offer your firm some major advantages. Here are three reasons you need to let clients pay with QR codes.

Faster, Easier Payments
The primary benefit of giving clients the option to pay with QR codes is that it makes it easier for them to submit payment, which means you get paid faster. You can display your QR code at reception and/or at your desk so that when an in-person meeting ends, the client can scan the QR code and pay before they even leave the office.

For clients who prefer to receive physical invoices, you can include a QR code on the printed bill, allowing them to pay electronically without having to type out a URL to a payment page. Automatically including QR codes can also encourage clients who are still paying by check to make the switch to electronic payments.

Safe, Socially Distant and Eco-Friendly Payments
Among the biggest benefits of giving clients the ability to pay with QR codes is that it allows you to process in-person payments at a safe distance. Because the client handles the transaction entirely on their phone, they don’t have to physically hand you anything and you can maintain the CDC-recommended six feet apart while indoors.

In addition, premium online payment solutions give you the option to send emailed receipts, which means using QR codes to accept payments further contributes to reduced paper waste and helps support a paper-light or paperless office.

Increased Security and PCI Compliance
Along with being physically safer, accepting payments via QR codes is also more secure than traditional payment methods like cash or paper checks.

When your client scans a LawPay QR code, they are sent to your custom, mobile-optimized payment page that is hosted on our secure server. The client then enters their own payment details, which are automatically encrypted, sent directly to our system, and never stored locally.

And since neither you nor any member of your staff handles the client’s payment information, it reduces security risks and minimizes your PCI (Payment Card Industry) liability.
