Things to know

  • If a technician uses ServiceTitan Payments for the first time, they must download the Pricebook and sync changes before accepting payments in ServiceTitan Mobile. For more information, see Update your pricebook.

Set up a payment type

Most companies use generic payment types, such as credit cards, checks, or cash. However, some companies prefer more specific payment types, for example, Visa or Mastercard. Use this page to set up the types of payment you accept.

  1. Go to the navigation bar and click Settings.

  2. In the side panel, click Invoicing > Payment and Invoice Types.

  3. In the Payment Types section, click Add.

    The Payment Type screen opens.

  4. Enter details for the payment type:

    • Name—Name of the new payment type, like Online Payments.

    • Export as—Export payment method. Note: By default, payments are exported into undeposited funds.

    • Account—Export to the account you select.

    • Attributes—Payment type.

    • Hide From Mobile—When selected, prevents this payment type from appearing in ServiceTitan Mobile so that your technicians don’t select it by mistake.

    • Active—Turn on to use this payment type

  5. When you’re done, click Save.

Set up online payments

The Online Payments feature helps you embed a payment link in your customer invoice emails. This allows your customers to make self-service payments online. For more information, see Guide to online payments.

Note: To avoid any interruption of your payment processing services, do not make changes to these settings once they are in place.

The information you see in Settings > Integrations > Payment Processing is for payment processor integration only.

Check credit card swiper compatibility

The ServiceTitan Payments team can help you order swipers and can send these directly to you.

Credit card swiping requires either the BBPOS card reader or the Magtek aDynamo.

Note: BBPOS credit card swipers aren’t supported in Canada. For more information on how to process payments with BBPOS swipers, see Process credit card payments in ServiceTitan Mobile with the BBPOS card reader.

The Magtek aDynamo credit card readers are compatible with Android devices only.

Note: If you're using an Android device, check the compatibility list to make sure your device is compatible with the Magtek aDynamo. Any device not found on this list can’t be guaranteed to work with ServiceTitan Payments. BBPOS swipers are compatible with both Apple iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices. Tip: If technicians use a case for their mobile device, they may want to use an extender. For more information, contact the ServiceTitan Payments team at
