Accepting various forms of payment is important in the competitive world of the legal industry. Along with accepting payments comes great responsibility in the handling of the process; you must ensure certain rules of ethics are followed, and client confidentiality and security are crucial. LawPay is the most trusted credit card processing company that works exclusively within the legal community, offering a secure method of accepting credit card payments. TimeSolv combined with LawPay Integration means you not only have an incredibly intuitive and comprehensive billing system, but also a widely approved credit card payment processing service. This week’s Tip of the Week will walk you through how you can link up your LawPay account with TimeSolv.
Setting things up within LawPay
To begin with, you’ll need to link up your LawPay and TimeSolv accounts within LawPay. So go ahead and log into your LawPay account. Click on your username on the top right corner of the screen, and select ‘Settings‘ from the drop-down menu. Then click on the Developers tab. At the bottom, you’ll see an Authorize Application button.

Accept LawPay payments
Now you can finally start to accept LawPay payments! Ensure under Clients>Settings>General that the ‘Enable Portal?‘ checkbox is enabled.
Below the checkbox, select the payment profile that you linked LawPay with. So, for example if I selected my account named Operating Account when pasting the LawPay secret key in the steps above, that’s the one I want to pick from this drop-down here as the payment acceptor.
What’s great is that your clients don’t even need to have a login credential assigned to them on the client portal. Clients get a link right in their invoice email and can pay immediately. But if you do choose to set up clients on the portal, the benefits will be that clients can independently view invoices, payment histories, trust balances, and details of work in progress, allowing you to focus on other areas of your business.
