Merchant Account Provider, BluePay, Offers Payment Processing Services for Nonprofit Organizations


December 29, 2009

An industry leader in credit card processing and small business merchant account services headquartered in the Chicago suburbs, BluePay has announced a new payment processing solution that allows nonprofit companies to streamline donations safely and effectively. By creating donation Web-forms, BluePay is able to offer a new avenue for nonprofits seeking to accept credit card and ACH donations, while maintaining the security, flexibility and customer service extended to small businesses and merchants.

With BluePay’s hosted payment form, nonprofits can link to a donation page hosted on BluePay’s secure, private servers to ensure PCI compliance. Each donation form is customized to match the look and feel of the nonprofit’s Web site, and can be seamlessly integrated into the site navigation.

“With BluePay’s hosting and transaction services, nonprofit organizations do not have to pay the expenses incurred in obtaining PCI compliance. This allows nonprofits to accept credit cards for online donations while reducing the liability involved in electronic payments,” says Kristen Gramigna, Director of BluePay.

In addition to PCI compliance, BluePay’s new nonprofit function streamlines the donation process, allowing customers and donors to make a donation in any amount with the payment method of their choice, including any of the major credit cards and ACH payments. Donations can be made on a one-time or recurring basis, giving donors the option of donating annually, monthly or weekly. Donors can receive the receipt online or through email, customized and sent through the nonprofit’s email address.

“Today’s donors are shopping, paying bills and managing several different payment accounts from their computers and mobile devices. The ability to accept recurring electronic donations benefits the nonprofits and the donors on multiple levels. For the donors, it means an easier, secure donation process that bypasses the need to fill out a form or write a check with each donation. For the nonprofit, it makes it easier to retain existing donors while saving money on the marketing materials, postage and envelopes typically sent out to re-solicit donors. This is revolutionary for any nonprofit entity or organization struggling to get donations in today’s tight economy. Streamlining the donation process for nonprofits makes doing a good deed even easier, and the BluePay team is proud to be a part of that,” says Gramigna.
