You can choose from a range of physical terminals that work over a phone line or IP-based terminals that work through your Internet connection. You also have your option of a virtual terminal that can process payments right at your computer with only a USB-connected swipe reader and user-friendly web interface.
Another option that many nonprofits opt for is mobile credit card processing. Through an easy-to-use web application, your mobile phone or tablet can be turned into a secure credit card processing terminal.

Offer ACH Recurring Payment Options for Charitable Giving
ACH remains one of the most cost-effective ways you can process payment in person or online. Whether an individual would like to process a one-time payment or get set up with a monthly gift, ACH transactions offer a cost-effective, convenient way to ensure payment is sent on time.
An ACH payment is essentially an electronic check. When a giver authorizes the ACH transaction and provides bank account information, funds are directly deposited into your account. ACH provides a quick way for you to get funds and will be an important option you include on your organization’s web site.

How a Nonprofit Can Prevent Chargebacks
We are committed to seeing your organization succeed with high-quality payment processing services. At Credit Card Processing Specialists, we offer in-house risk management and loss prevention support. Our experienced group can assist you in identifying some of the challenges that are unique to nonprofit organizations.
Chargeback prevention is important so that your organization can avoid the loss of the donation. A chargeback is defined as a demand from a credit card company for the merchant to make good on a disputed charge. So what can cause a chargeback?
A chargeback could be implemented if a donor changes his or her mind, or if there was dissatisfaction with a product – such as with merchandise your organization sells. In other cases, a donor may not recognize a charge on the credit card statement or simply forget they made the donation.
With all that in mind, there are some things you can do to avoid a chargeback and strengthen the donation process. One of the things you can do is send what’s called a transaction email or even a follow-up letter through the mail. Essentially this step just thanks the individual for the donation, but what you are also doing is reminding them when and how it will show up on their credit card bill as well.
If you are selling merchandise as a part of your campaign that ships out, here are some appropriate junctures to send out a message:
- Sign-Up / Welcome Email
- Purchase Receipt Email or Letter
- Order Confirmation Email
- Shipping Updates
- Thank You Email
- Follow-Up Messages
A transaction email helps support your sale, shows appreciation, and shows that the product will be shipping. There are some customers who inherently are afraid that their order will be lost, and this negativity can lead to dissatisfaction or a lost sale. Keeping customer service easy to reach can also help to solidify the transaction and improve satisfaction levels.
