Plastiq is a service that empowers cardholders to make payments for tuition, taxes, utility bills, and more with their credit card of choice. The platform allows consumers to use their credit cards for payments in situations when they previously could not. Plastiq charges a nominal service fee for each transaction, that was historically charged to the merchant, for the added flexibility to strategically use their preferred credit cards.
