Online Payments eliminates the need to manually process registration and credit card payments by rolling both activities into one easy process that attendees and donors do themselves online. Your registrants and donors will all get immediate registration or payment confirmation via the Web. And Online Payments makes it easy to maintain the look and feel of your Website on each Online Payments page. 

Leverage Online Payments for more than your once-a-year event—without a big time investment on your end—by creating donor pages for year-round online giving to get even more from your investment.

Text to Donate is included as an option for use with Online Payments.

We built the tool with this question in mind and made it easy for anyone to use to build a page.

A Virtual Terminal is an online credit card processing page for your organization’s internal use. The Virtual Terminal is used for year-round credit card transactions that can be processed online by you and your staff. To use the Virtual Terminal, simply go to the Virtual Terminal link; enter the donor and transaction amount to process the transaction. The link to your organization’s live Virtual Terminal link is included in the initial testing email we send to you. All transaction details processed using the Virtual Terminal will be reflected in online reports and will be included in weekly deposit statements.
