Membership plans are care plans that dental practices offer directly to your patients. Patients pay a subscription fee to your practice. You design the plan and set the pricing. Most plans typically cover all preventive care and discounts on other treatments, but it's entirely up to you.

Pearly empowers dental practices to provide membership through our cutting-edge software and growth services. If you have any questions, please email us at

We integrate with Stripe for secure credit card and ACH payment processing. Stripe processes billions of dollars per year for millions of leading companies including Target, Lyft, OpenTable, and Unicef. Pearly partnered with Stripe for its industry-leading security and transparent pricing.

When a patient makes a payment through Pearly, a merchant processing fee is automatically deducted by Stripe from your payout amount. You can review Stripe's merchant processing fees here and they are outlined below:

Credit Card:

Practices using Pearly in the United States can accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express Discover, JCB Diners Club, and UnionPay credit and debit cards. Patients can also pay with Apple Pay and Google Pay.

The credit card processing fee is 2.9% + $0.30 per successful payment processed.

For example, if a credit card payment of $100 is collected, the credit card processing fee would be $3.20 ($2.90 + $0.30). By leveraging Stripe, we can offer Pearly practice's straightforward merchant processing fees that remain consistent across credit types and payment amount.

ACH Debit:

Practices using Pearly also offer patients the ability to pay via Automated Clearing House (ACH) debits. Patients securely provide their bank account details using our integration with Plaid, which streamlines the ACH process.

The ACH debit fee is 0.8% per successful payment processed with a cap of $5.

For example, if a ACH payment of $100 is collected, the ACH processing fee would be $0.80. ACH is an advantageous payment method for larger transactions as a $5,000 ACH payment would max out the ACH fee at $5.
