For nonprofit organizations, accepting many different types of donations is important.
Cash donations are easy to accept; however, many people today only carry card. On top of that, local donations are only a piece of the fundraising pie. By accepting donations online, your organization has access to many more potentially generous donors.
You have seen the ‘DONATE’ button on other websites, but how can your organization accept these payments. It isn’t as easy as adding the button. To accept payments online, your organization will have to get a credit card processor. Many 3rd party sites, such as Facebook, will allow you to use their online credit card processor to accept donations. However, if your organization is accepting credit card and online donations in the long run, getting a credit card processor will save you immensely on high fees and complications.
