CareCredit® integration 

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

CardCredit integration is available at no cost to you, starting with Cornerstone 9.5. Using the CareCredit integration is an easy, self-guided setup that enables additional payment options to either process a payment directly or email/text a payment link using CareCredit’s online portal. Payments display on deposit reports and payment registers. These settings also enable sending an application to your clients using the existing CareCredit window, accessed from the toolbar or from the Activities menu (U.S. practices only). 

Click here to schedule the integration push to your server, if you have Cornerstone 9.5. To learn more about how the CareCredit integration works, click here.
