PPA & Payscape

A Case Study

Professional Photographers of america

Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the world's largest nonprofit photography association organized for professional photographers, by professional photographers, with 30,000 creative members in more than 50 countries.

The Challenge

Before Payscape, members of PPA managed their payments by using different payment platforms, however they experienced complex rate structures, unauthorized charges, and cancelation fees. With the non-existent customer service, they found it difficult to find solutions to these issues.

  • Affinity Partner Program

PPA's mission is to create a vibrant community of successful professional photographers by providing education, resources and industry standards of excellence.


Partnering with Payscape provided members a one-stop-shop to save on merchant processing. Going above and beyond simple savings, Payscape also offered a custom-tailored plan, mobile options, an automated digital invoice solution, tracking and reporting and more.

Director, Member Value and Experience

A growing number of our members have decided to utilize Payscape's fintech solutions, not only to save on merchant processing, but to take advantage of valuable tools outside of simple savings. We believe that the true value provided to these members will increase their overall success, and as a result, the success of the Association as a whole.

Highlighted Service

PPA members can now enjoy a risk-free credit card processing tool with an added bonus of educational content full of tips and tricks on payment processing such as ebooks and webinars. 


Results & ROI

Since transitioning to Payscape Mobile, payments have become a simple, on-the-go process for PPA members, saving them valuable time. Photographers no longer have to wait for payments as they can be accepted anytime and anywhere while out photographing clients. Payscape also focuses on providing invaluable educational content to its members across all topics and avenues.
