Secure Payment Processing

NIC Payments:  Secure Payment Processing

The Simple, Secure and Flexible Way for Government to Process Payments

Almost 30 years ago, NIC set out to become the leading provider of digital solutions for government agencies. NIC suite of integrated technologies, built specifically for government, make processing payments easier, more secure, and more citizen-focused than anyone else. Whether you need a flexible omni-channel platform, fully PCI-Level-1 compliant transactions, or just a better way for depositing, tracking and reporting funds, we have a solution for you.  NIC Payment Processing allows you to offer citizens multiple payment channels, accept multiple payment types and provides you with secure processing and disbursement.

Securely Processing $24 billion on behalf of citizens and government in 2020
Processes more than 1 million credit, debit and electronic check transactions per day

With today's complex financial environment, rapidly changing technology, and increased security standards, NIC continually evaluates, enhances, and evolves our payment solutions to meet these demands. For example, in 2020, NIC added a new cash payment option made possible by Fiserv's CheckFreePay® walk-in service to serve a large population of "cash preferred" consumers and the unbanked and underbanked population.
