Offer a reinvented and convenient payment option to patients.
Dramatically lowers your PCI liability; no more patient credit card numbers floating around on scratch paper, sticky notes or in patient ledgers.
Collect from more patients, faster!

Updated the code-base of Text to Pay to allow us to move quicker with updates and to better fit into the entire Weave app.
HIPAA updates to Text to Pay:
Added a HIPAA authentication step for patients to complete if they receive a payment request with a statement or invoice attachment. If no attachment is added, the patient will not be required to authenticate in order to pay.
Removed first and last name from the default Text to Pay text message so it is HIPAA compliant (not sending name + practice name in the same message). We did keep your office's name so that your patients know the payment request is coming from you.
Improved the flow of Text to Pay - you get straight into choosing the patient you want to create a request for from the home screen Text to Pay icon.
Added more Q&A entries to our Text to Pay FAQ repository so you are empowered to troubleshoot and find answers without having to reach out to our support team. Don't worry, support is still available to you if needed.
Added a way for you to modify the credit card payment form. This is the form your patient sees when they click on the link from your payment request text message and where they enter their credit card information for payment. This form can be updated after you set up your Text to Pay account in your Weave Admin Portal (available via the Weave App > Settings > User Management or via this URL).
