Religious Organizations & Church Credit Card Processing
Churches & Religious organizations have similar payments requirements as do many non-profits entities. These payment processing needs can be varied including donations and fundraising both in person and online. Rate structures can vary dramatically based on the balance of in-person, card present transactions and those that are processed in the absence of the physical card.
Because of these payment processing variations, we’d need to know more about your requirements before we could suggest which of the basic merchant accounts would become the foundation for a responsible rate tier. It’s a successful rate foundation that empowers you to accept credit card payments easily without needlessly losing valuable funds from your proceeds.
What is different about Church Credit Card Processing?
What makes the payment processing characteristics of Church credit card processing different are the various means by which credit cards will need to be accepted. Many transactions might not be face-to-face as may be the case with phone, mail, or online donations and fundraising. Other situations might require a mobile means of accepting payments via Smartphone or wireless solutions.
Many card issuers can offer credit card processing discounts at such point as the organization demonstrates their non-profit status.
Another notable difference is that non-profit organizations may be entitled to reduced processing rates and/or services. Many card issuers can offer credit card processing discounts at such point as the organization demonstrates their non-profit status.
