Payment Technology

In 2018, Nelnet is adding several value-added features to its existing payment platform, with the overriding goal of broadening the way people accept payments. Processing a payment from a computer or phone is commonplace, but we want to take it a step further. As part of this initiative, PaymentSpring is exploring check and cryptocurrency payments as a tool for merchants.

Through this new team, Nelnet aims to commercialize these revolutionary concepts and move our business lines in a forward, progressive motion.
