Hear what RodeoPay clients have to say…

We have eliminated costs in two main areas. First, we no longer need to handle and re-mail checks from the rodeos to contestants. This has freed up staff time and eliminated repetitive mailing costs. Secondly, with the integration between Rapid and our systems, we have reduced our volume of credit card processing charges by having contestants use funds from within RodeoPay to pay their obligations.

The use of RodeoPay, as provided by Rapid Financial Solutions, has allowed us to streamline and modernize our payment processing. As a result, our members have access to their funds in a secure manner, days to weeks faster than our old process. Additionally, our partnership has allowed us to provide other value-added services to our membership.”

— Dan Martinez, Chief Information Officer, Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association

RodeoPay has made it easier for our member rodeos to pay their contestants. With one click they can transfer money from the association bank account to the contestant’s bank account.”
