A Switch to Access Idaho Allows for Online and Over-the-Counter Credit Card Use

The Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses (IBOL) is now using Access Idaho to process credit cards online and at the counter.

IBOL uses Access Idaho’s payment engine to take credit cards online through its licensing system. Through the payment engine, IBOL has the future option to use NIC’s Gov2Go Pay service, which allows customers to store credit card or checking information to use at a later date. Gov2Go Pay also expedites the checkout process, makes it possible for users to pay other Idaho state agencies, and enables users to view payment transaction history plus create custom notes. IBOL can now take Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, and Discover.

IBOL also implemented Access Idaho’s PayPort service to collect cards at the counter. This application, along with using the payment engine, allows IBOL to streamline its billing reports saving time for financial staff.

Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses partnered with Boise-based Access Idaho to build and maintain the service. The partnership operates under a self-funded model in which no tax dollars or state funds were used.
