Frequently Asked Questions
What is kerpay
Kerpay allows you to collect payment within minutes. It actually creates for you a secure personal payment page with an internet address like www.kerpay.com/@yourname (example: www.kerpay.com/@launchpole) that can be shared on any media: email, sms, whatsapp, twitter, facebook, on your website, business cards or flyers. Kerpay uses Stripe, the world's best and most secure payment platform, as payments processor.

How do recurring payment work
First you need to define a subscription plan with an amount and a frequency (weekly, monthly or yearly). Then, invite your customers to subscribe through your payment page (like this one). And then... actually you are done! Payments will be automatically collected on your subscribers credit/debit cards according to the frequency you set with the plan (weekly, monthly or yearly). Nothing to be done by yourself or your customers, everything is handled by our system. In case of subscription cancellation by a customer, he will have to send you a request and you will then cancel yourself the subscription through our system (customers can not do it on their own).
