Payment Portal for Our Court Reporting Services

Paying Summit has become even easier with online payments.

Payments of invoices are provided through a third-party and you will be redirected to a third-party site. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at or contact COMPANY directly.

(By clicking here you agree and acknowledge the privacy and other policies below and that you will be taken off of Summit Court Reporting’s website and directed to a third-party Payment Service Provider.)

Privacy Policy

The terms and conditions apply to all forms of online/electronic payments made to Summit Court Reporting, Inc. (online/electronic payments made by credit card, debit card, electronic check and all other forms of electronic payments), whether online, fax, email, telephone, or other form.

By making an online/electronic payment to Summit, you accept these terms and conditions.

The terms and conditions are subject to change at any time by Summit. Each transaction is subject to the specific Terms and Conditions that are in place at the time of the transaction.

In addition to these terms and conditions, Summit’s privacy policy applies to your use of Summit’s website and repository.

By providing your Payment information to Summit:

You are stating that you are an authorized user of the payment account and that the associated information entered or provided (account holder name, account number and details, billing address, etc.) is accurate and you are giving Summit and/or Summit’s third-party Payment Service Provider permission to collect the information for the purposes of making payment.

Payments made through Summit’s website are not collected by Summit directly and that info is collected by third-party payment service providers (“Payment Service Provider”).

You will be asked to submit appropriate personal and financial information to the Payment Service Provider designated for the service(s) for which you are making payment, so that the online payment can be processed. You accept and consent to your personal data being provided to the Payment Service Provider for the sole purpose of offering and administering the online payment. You further accept and consent to the terms and conditions, privacy policy and other policies of the Payment Service Provider as posted by that Payment Service Provider on its website at the time of the transaction.

You are stating that you are an authorized user of the payment account and that the associated information entered or provided (account holder name, account number and details, billing address, etc.) is accurate and you are giving Summit and/or Summit’s third-party Payment Service Provider permission to collect the information for the purposes of making payment.

Communications and data transmitted to and from the Payment Service Provider’s site are encrypted. Payments will be processed directly by the Payment Service Provider using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Neither Summit Court Reporting nor the Payment Service Provider maintain your Online Payment account information details after your transaction is completed.

For each transaction, in addition to the charge(s) you have authorized Summit and the Payment Service Provider, your payment issuer (bank or other financial institution) and network may assess their customary transaction or handling charge, if any.

If a charge is declined or reversed by the credit card issuer or network, you agree to pay the Payment Service Provider a service charge and to reimburse the Payment Service Provider (and Summit, if applicable) for all reasonable costs of collection. Your payment issuer may also assess its customary charge for such transactions.

The Payment Service Provider may request a pre-authorization for some orders placed online with a credit or debit card. This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period. Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held. We do this to ensure that the card details are still valid and to ensure that sufficient funds are available to complete the transaction.

Summit Court Reporting's policy for “standard delivery” of its products is ten business days from the date of service, or when reasonable during time of COVID-19 pandemic. Summit Court Reporting also offers expedited services and products at additional charges. Summit reserves the right to require payment prior to delivery of its services and products.

If your payment issuer or network does not honor an online payment transaction, then Summit Court Reporting has the right to collect the amount directly from you.

If your payment issuer or network does not honor an online payment transaction, Summit Court Reporting may terminate any or all services and may request return of any transcripts [or other products] provided for which payment was not received, and we may cancel your use of the online payment program and/or request COD for this or future orders.

  • If successful, you will be emailed confirmation that your payment was completed.
  • If unsuccessful, you will be emailed that your payment has failed. Summit Court Reporting will not be privy to why a payment has failed; therefore, you should contact your provider for details. If your payment fails, please use one of the other payment methods available provided to you by Summit Court Reporting.

If you have any questions regarding your payment, please contact Summit Court Reporting’s Billing Department by email ( or by telephone ((215) 985-2400).

By clicking “Agree to terms and continue to payment” you are consenting to these Terms and Conditions.

Further, in any arbitration proceeding, (i) there shall be no award of punitive, exemplary, incidental or consequential or other special damages and (iii) the parties will conduct the arbitration confidentially and expeditiously and will pay their own costs and expenses of arbitration, including their own attorneys’ fees.
