The payment links let people pay for services by card. This is powered by SumUp, a leading payments company. They are able to verify and secure your card details. They charge a small transaction fee (usually in the region of 2.5%) for their service. Progress Psychotherapy does not keep a record of your card details. Services purchased can be refunded up to 24 hours before session time but the transaction fee cannot be. Direct bank payment avoids the fee so can be an alternative payment method.
