What payment options does my client have?

Pie offers a variety of payment options to meet our policyholder’s needs.

At the time of bind, we’ll send an email with secure payment link information to your client with you cc’ed, letting them know that we accept credit cards, debit cards, or ACH. We offer four payment plans:

Annual: 100% deposit Due up front

Semi-annual: 50% deposit Due every 180 days

Quarterly: 25% deposit Due every 90 days

Monthly: 16.6% deposit Due monthly for 10 months

Pay-as-you-go: Pay as a percent of payroll

If the insured does not make their payment within the first 30 days, we cancel the policy back to a flat cancellation.

Note that all semi-annual, quarterly, and monthly payments will include a $5 installment fee on each bill.
