Patriot Software needs your credit or debit card information in order to process your payments for software and service fees. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.
We require a credit card during your free trial, but you will not be billed for Patriot services until your free trial is over. If you are a Full-Service Payroll customer, or use direct deposit, a credit card will be required in case your bank account doesn’t have the funds to cover taxes and/or direct deposits.
To enter your credit/debit card info

- Card Nickname. Give your card a nickname, if you wish. The Monthly Software Fees page will list the nickname for each transaction.

- Card Type. The software automatically chooses the card type for you.
- Name On Card. Enter the name as it appears on your card (e.g., company name, personal name).
- Expiration Date. Use the dropdown lists to select the correct month and year.
