Prime Child Care Supports All Online Payment TypesBring your own payment processing service, or select from popular options.  Prime Child Care is integrated with PayPal™, Square™, or Stripe™ out-of-the-box making it super fast to get setup with your existing account with these providers, or even create your new account from within Prime Child Care.

Get the Best Rates & Support for ACH Transactions

Popular off-the-shelf payment processing services are very convenient and work great for many child care centers.  However, lower transaction rates can often be had based on your specific businesses volumes and practices.  Additionally, these popular payment processors do not support ACH transactions.  For the best rates and support for ACH transactions, you should check with your local bank, or speak with the company we have come to trust and recommend.
