This article explains how to complete the initial setup and application process required before using Tap Inspect Payments. If you are looking for general information About Tap Inspect Payments or Using Tap Inspect Payments your may want to read those first.
Before You Begin
You must currently be an active Tap Inspect subscriber located in the United States and using a United States bank to use payments.
There are a few tasks that should be completed before you set up Tap Inspect Payments. By doing these tasks first, the process will be much simpler and take much less effort. Many of these tasks are part of the initial Scheduling and Automation setup.
- Complete Your User Profile
- Complete Your Company Profile
- Enable Scheduling
- Enable Invoicing
- Verify you have an active Tap Inspect subscription
- Collect business and business owner(s) information
- Collect banking and account information for deposits of payments
Once you have completed these tasks you will have everything you need to complete the Tap Inspect Payments setup and application process.
To get started, sign into your Tap Inspect web account and go to the Settings menu. Then tap on Payments.
You will need the business, business owner, and banking information to complete the application. Due to the confidential information needed to complete the application you may want to wait to begin the process until you have it all available.
The information from your User Profile and Company Profile will be automatically entered for you. This is to save time and effort but be sure to check that information if you have put standard information in parts of your profile.
Tell us about your business and who is the person most responsible for the payments.
This may contain 'doing business as' or DBA information. If your business is owned by a different legal entity, enter that information in the Ownership section in the next step.
Tell us about your business' legal entity and any business owner with a 25% or more stake in the business.
For most small or medium sized home inspection businesses there may not be much of a distinction between the legal entity and what you entered as the business and primary contact information.
Tell us where to deposit your client's payments. You will need to know your banking information such as your routing and account numbers.
Accept Terms of Service
The last step of setting up payments is accepting the payments terms of service. Be sure to scroll and read the entire agreement before signing.
When the Tap Inspect Payments/PayStand Terms of Service are accepted we will send your application to our underwriting partner for approval. Most applications are approved within a matter of minutes.
In the rare event that your application is not approved please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help.
The last step of setting up Tap Inspect Payments is to verify the correct bank account is linked. Two small deposits will be made to the bank account defined for your payments. Once they arrive you will need to enter the amounts in the Payments settings page to complete and activate Tap Inspect Payments.
You will still be able to collect payments from your clients before you verify the test deposits but they can not be deposited into your account. Once you do complete this step, any payments being held in escrow will be deposited using the agreed upon payout terms.
