Ponderosa Pay® is a fully compliant payments engine for simple, secure, and reliable processing of all major payment methods. With Ponderosa Pay, LBM dealers and distributors can offer their customers the flexibility and convenience to pay with a credit card (both in-store and card-present and card-not-present scenarios), a debit card, or via an ACH payment.
Simple, Secure and Reliable Payment Processing
Ponderosa Pay provides simple, secure, and reliable payment processing along with the industry’s most innovative payment technology. Ponderosa Pay’s distinctive advantage is that we can automatically include Level 2 and Level 3 data with each transaction, so that you qualify for the lowest possible interchange rate every time. Or, if you prefer, you can lock in a flat, guaranteed interchange rate on every transaction, potentially saving thousands of dollars.
Retail and pro customers simply access our customer’s secure, fully branded website where they can build out products (including window and door configurations), submit quotes, place orders, check order status, make payments, view A/R balances and much more — from anywhere, any time. Ponderosa Pay streamlines the order and procurement process for your pro customers and drives increased sales.
