For secure payments, Communitas uses the Intuit Payment Network. IPN transactions are made directly from your bank.

To submit a payment, click the below Pay by IPN button.

You are not charged anything extra for using the service and you do not need to create any new account.

You only need your bank routing and account number. Communitas never sees or otherwise has access to this information. If you have it handy, please also include the invoice number that you’re paying.

From the IPN help page, three important points about the security used:

  • Data encryption. PaymentNetwork adheres to rigorous online banking industry protection standards for all online communication, using an https connection over SSL (Secure Socket Layer) at 256-bit AES encryption.
  • Privacy. Intuit safeguards your financial information. Even your payors or payees can’t see your bank account or credit card information.
  • Limited exposure. When you hand a paper check to someone it contains your Bank Routing and Account number. When you pay using PaymentNetwork, we do not share this information with the receiver.

If you have any questions, please call our office at 415-337-4566.
