Photography business snaps up payment solution
10 May 2017
Family owned and operated local portrait photography studio Freedom Photography prides itself on delivering beautiful images.
Based in Perth, Australia, the intimate, professional portrait photography studio specialises in family and portrait photography. The team provides a personalised, comfortable and relaxed photo shoot experience, as well as a flexible payment solution meaning an ‘any day, any frequency’ option for its clients.
Freedom Photography uses the service of leading payment solutions provider Debitsuccess to manage customers’ payments, enabling people to create their own payment structure.
Owner/Director Mark Lait says the solution is working well for both the studio and its clients.
“With Debitsuccess on board, the processing and collection of payments is taken care of which is hugely beneficial for our business,” says Mark. “Our photo products range from $250 to many thousands of dollars so having a flexible payment options means people have the choice to purchase additional items without the stress of immediate payment.”
With Debitsuccess on board, Freedom Photography is able to offer people an option to place a deposit of their choice and create their own payment structure. This means significantly higher sales as clients do not have to come up with the total amount immediately to purchase their goods; what’s more, they can take their goods home when ready so they can enjoy them while they pay them off.
Payment plans can be tailored to suit customers’ individual financial situations. This approach is based on the subscription economy – a business model increasingly being used by businesses of all sizes to secure reliable cash flow. This is where customers have the ability to pay for goods and services via a regular, frequent instalment plan, rather than a large lump sum.
Mark adds: “I can advise organisations managing their own direct debit arrangement that it is worthwhile changing over to a company that handles the whole process. Not only does it save time, it also saves administration – in fact, we haven’t had any payments default since we started using Debitsuccess.”
Debitsuccess is also Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant and accredited, ensuring the highest level of credit card security is provided.
With flexible payment options and confidence in security and technology, Freedom Photography is able to focus on other important aspects of its business, including its customers and popular friendly offering.
Debitsuccess is part of Transaction Services Group (TSG), a global direct debit billing service business with a presence in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Initiating over 50 million transactions worth more than $2 billion annually, TSG specialises in the delivery of recurring payment solutions for a wide range of industries.
