Atlanta (September 2, 2022) – Elavon, a wholly-owned subsidiary of U.S. Bank and one the largest payments processors globally, today announced an expanded referral relationship with Authvia, leveraging their patented text to pay solution with professional services customers.

Currently, hundreds of Elavon customers leverage Authvia’s text payment technology with professional services businesses, where payments may be accepted without a traditional point of sale system. The text to pay solution is focused on businesses in the United States, and available for customer use today. Customers receive a simple text message notification for payment, and can securely pay anywhere, anytime using existing digital wallets, or manually entering their card information.

“Elavon is focused on bringing convenient digital payment solutions for our customers, and Authvia’s text solutions for professional services are another example of the broad array of capabilities we support,” said Jamie Walker, Elavon CEO.

For professional services businesses that have traditionally relied on paper billing or awkward on-site payment systems, text to pay accelerates cash flow, reduces accounts payable management, and brings convenience to consumers.

Authvia’s patented conversational commerce infrastructure brings:

  • Safety and security of contactless payments
  • Convenience to pay anywhere, anytime through a mobile device
  • Acceptance across a wide variety of platforms
