Creating Donor Ease with Credit Card Processing for Nonprofits

The reality of today's global economy is that accepting credit cards are a necessary part of business and the nonprofit community. The idea of figuring out how to process credit cards can appear to be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Accepting credit card payments, and processing them, is easier than ever thanks to technology, mobile accessibility and integration with fundraising and donation websites.

With credit card processing for nonprofits, a very important factor to keep in mind is ensuring that the donor trust and confidence that you have worked so hard to gain, and keep, is upheld if they should chose to give via credit card. Ensuring that credit card processing is safe, reliable and accessible for everyone is an important step in ensuring that donors are comfortable to support your mission and you receive the funds in a timely manner.

Why do I have PCI fees on my merchant account statement?

All US based merchants (businesses or organizations) who accept, store or transmit credit card data are required to be PCI compliant. This required standard has been put in place to ensure the safety and security of your constituent's personal and financial data.

A key requirement of this standard is to complete an annual Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) attesting your organization's compliance. The SAQ will ask a series of Yes/No questions based on the PCI Data Security Standards that apply to your organization or business type.
