Frequently Asked Questions
Can I integrate this with accounting software such as Quickbooks, Excel, etc.?
Yes. If you require a more advanced accounting workflow, Stripe offers third-party integrations to tie payment processing into various accounting software. It also keeps permanent records of transactions, and can export all of your transaction information as needed.
Will Eneris have access to my clients' credit card information?
No. Credit card processing is strictly handled by Stripe, which is a Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant transaction processor with enhanced security and fraud detection.
How long does it take for credit card charges to be deposited into my bank account?
The first deposit may take 8-10 days for funds to clear due to Stripe's automated fraud detection systems. After that, 2-3 days can be expected for most transactions.
