Hi Patricia! I love the mission behind what you're doing. This is so important! I'm a co-founder and the CEO of focused ( We help you get your work done through 1-1 video calls. We match you with a trained host who supports you through accountability, guidance, and a bit of meditation. For our banking, we use Mercury. I love it and the experience has been seamless. For payments, we take payments on our website (Squarespace) and our payment processor is Stripe (which takes 3%). This solution has worked really well for us so far. Let me know if I can answer any other questions.

Nodira, thanks for sharing about Mercury. We use Stripe as well. Most importantly thank you for sharing about Focused. I love how you incorporate neuroscience and behavioral/cognitive psychologist into the "focused method". I will read more about Focused!
