With a new feature from dealership management system software provider Auto/Mate, customers can pay service repair orders and parts invoices without having to step inside the dealership.
Auto/Mate is a business unit of DealerSocket, and the company says that with the new feature, called Remote Payments, dealership personnel can now send customers emails containing a link for them to enter their credit card payment information. The customer receives a confirmation message instantly when the dealership receives the payment.
The Remote Pay feature is available immediately to dealerships currently using Auto/Mate’s new Parts Module and also currently using the Worldpay from FIS Credit Card Processing integration. Auto/Mate provides additional information about its Credit Card Processing engine powered by Worldpay from FIS.
“Our remote payment feature makes it easy for dealership employees and customers to follow social distancing guidelines, and also reduces the physical exchange of cash and credit cards,” Auto/Mate president Mike Esposito said in a news release.
Esposito continued, “Additionally, the ability to pay ROs and parts invoices remotely offers more options and flexibility to customers, and speeds up the payment process for dealers.”
