Online Payments are here!

Clinic to Cloud has integrated with Stripe to offer you Online Payment options via the Patient Portal.

The practice registration form inside the Patient Portal now captures payment options (VISA or Mastercard), Private Health Insurance details, DVA card number, Health Care Card number, Pension number and usual GP. Patients are also able to set a different account holder, such as a parent, or other care giver.

Once entered, all information is available in the patients' demographics on the practice side. Patients can save multiple cards on file, however are not forced to, and can skip the Credit Card section if they wish.

Example of registration form with card details saved:



If payment details are entered and saved, practice staff now have visibility to the credit card information (only the last 4 digits), on any invoice raised for that patient, as well as in deposits. These transactions are recorded as Credit Card payments.

Online Payments Reporting

Whoever processed the payment, the patient, or practice staff using card details on file, you now also have a dedicated Online Payments report to account for these transactions.

This report is a mirror image of your Stripe account. You can consider the transactions in this report as your 'virtual merchant slips' for all payments made via Stripe.



'Credit Card' payments, just like Cash, or EFTPOS, can be reported on in all Clinic to Cloud reports including Daily Banking.




Notifications to patients 

You can now decide if your patients will receive either an email, or SMS, or both regarding (1) Online Practice Registration, (2) Payment Reminder, (3) Payment Acknowledgement. 

Go to Settings > Notifications > System Generated SMS and Emails
