Learn more about Participant Payments
Pay automated stipends immediately
As soon as a study visit is completed, study coordinators simply click ‘Pay’ in the system to release pre-approved stipends (regardless of payment method).
Reduce data entry and ensure consistency
Save time by reducing data entry across your protocols and subjects, centralize study information and guarantee data consistency via integration with your Forte CTMS.
Streamline the travel reimbursement process
Coordinators send reimbursement requests to finance for review, using built-in mileage calculations and uploading receipts on the spot. Maximums for hotel, parking and mileage can be set ahead of time.
Offer participants multiple payment methods
Empower each participant to be a decision-maker by letting them choose their preferred compensation method (debit card, direct deposit or check). Participants can also view funds and set notification preferences through a web portal or mobile app.
Keep track of finances with built-in reports
Track payment amounts across subjects and protocols with a variety of reports, including 1099s, itemized receipts and sponsor invoicing, to meet financial and tax reporting needs.
Monitor finances with increased security features
Ensure security and control over finances with single sign-on via SAML, masked social security numbers, verification of first time payments and audit reports.
Simplify the payment workflow for everyone
Participant Payments helps sites, sponsors and CROs securely and effortlessly pay participants after each visit. Reduce administrative burden and improve operational efficiency by eliminating manual and time-consuming processes.
What are the payment methods available for participants?
Each participant can choose to receive funds via reloadable debit card, direct deposit or check.
Can we use our own branding on the debit cards?
Yes, we allow organizations to create their own custom-branded cards, including choice of logo and colors.
Do you support customers outside of the US?
Unfortunately, our ability to support global projects is limited. For now, payments can only be issued in US Dollars, and English is the only language supported.
How much does Participant Payments cost?
To best serve enterprise research organizations, Participant Payments is licensed via an annual subscription fee based on your volume of research.
