Processing payments is what fuels your business, but it can take a whole team to make sure it’s done right. That’s why PaymentSpring is here — to smoothly transport money from your customers to your organization, provide financial reporting for your accountant, and incorporate the latest technology to protect your clients’ financial data.
When you’re looking for a payment gateway, you need a dashboard that allows you to save customer data, charge credit cards and bank accounts, and issue refunds. Beyond the basics, the PaymentSpring dashboard also provides helpful features that enhance your business processes and shares powerful insights.
1. Real-time Payment Updates
Our webhooks platform lets you know in real time what is happening inside of PaymentSpring.
For example, if you’re a nonprofit, you may want to recognize donors who go above and beyond to support your cause. In the happy event of a gift above $1,000, you can set up a webhook to notify you via text message or email — so you can recognize the donor for their generosity right away.
2. Build Custom Payment Forms – No Coding Required
With our widgets, adding a payment form to your website is easier than ever. Copy and paste a line of basic code and your payment form will appear.
Plus, forms aren’t restricted to payments. By using custom fields, you can use collect t-shirt sizes, feedback, or anything else. To make changes, simply tweak and save your widget. Refresh your browser. See your changes. It’s as easy as that.
3. Find the Needle in the Data Stack
Receive a lot of payments? Like, a LOT of payments?
Our advanced search tools help you narrow down and find the payment information you’re looking for. Want to sort failed payments by credit card brand? Need to see all successful payments within a specific time frame? No problem.
Plus, if your accounting department needs a list, it’s just as easy to export and distribute data.

4. Context is Everything
Let PaymentSpring be the friend that gives developers a little help. Context helps supplement any API documentation. Our dashboard utilizes the same API endpoints an integrator would use.
Not sure how your JSON payload should look or curious what a response might look like? Create the action in the dashboard and it’ll will show you the request and response payloads used to make the call. Anywhere you see a logs tab in the dashboard, you can see the actions performed for that resource.
But of course, our docs are pretty legit too. You don’t have to take our word for it.
5. With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
… unless all you have is view-only access.
Does your accounting team want access to the PaymentSpring dashboard? Great! As view-only users, they’ll be able to see all of the data they need to do their job effectively – without having the ability to update, change, or charge.
These are just a handful of the rich features available via the PaymentSpring merchant dashboard.
