Receive LawPay Payments in Client Portal

Payments can be recieved via eCheck, credit card and LawPay/Affinipay. TimeSolv has teamed with LawPay, AffiniPay and CPACharge to provide a seamless credit card and ACH payment process.

With the Client Portal, 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.

To receive online payments from your customers via LawPay, you need to setup one or more “Payment Profiles” in TimeSolv (P ayments>Settings>Bank Accounts). These payment profiles allow you to connect to LawPay/AffiniPay and specify to which bank accounts the payments will be deposited. Note that LawPay and AffiniPay are just two branded versions of the same product. 

Firm-wide Setting:

Click on  Clients>Settings>General tab.

Ensure Enable Portal? checkbox is enabled.

At the bottom of the ' General' tab, under the 'Client Portal' section, specify what bank account to receive portal payments in.

Client-level Setting:

Users can also achieve this at the Client-level. Click on  Clients>Clients & Matters>[client name]>General tab.

Specify the bank account next to the ' Receive All Portal Invoice Payments In' field.

On the Payment screens under the Client Portal, account-specific required fields (both for merchant and ACH accounts) are read from AffiniPay. Corresponding input fields are marked as required and validated.
