Non-Profit Credit Card Processing
The processing needs of a non-profit, charitable organization, or fundraising entity can be substantially varied. In many cases, the organization might benefit by a rate reduction associated with swiped transactions, also known as “Card Present” or “CP.” This is consistent with what we’d consider a “Retail Merchant Account.”
Other organizations may sell products or do fundraising online or via the phone. A representative solution for this segment might require a payment gateway that interfaces with a web-site, or a virtual terminal that lets the agent accept credit cards by typing the information into either a processing application or website. The rate structure for this solution would be similar to a MOTO Merchant Account (Mail Order / Telephone Order).
For more information about the differences regarding these types of accounts, consider visiting our Merchant Accounts page.
