Why Non Profits Choose Acceptiva!
We know that comparing online donation services can be confusing and so here's why Acceptiva is different and why our clients choose us over the competition. Of course Acceptiva meets all the requirements that you should look for in an online donations service, PCI DSS certified, Better Business Bureau accredited and we offer merchant accounts from one of the payment processing industry's most trusted providers.
But more than that, Acceptiva will save you the most time and money! We are the only service provider that enables you to have an unlimited number of customized secure online payment pages for one low monthly fee and no additional charges for new pages or page edits or changes.
This alone will save you hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars over time; and combined with our low processing fees will ensure that your organization will be able to quickly add new secure pages anytime without breaking your budget. Finally, Acceptiva offers a no questions asked 30 day money back guarantee. If you don't love the Acceptiva service we'll refund every penny that you've paid in monthly and sign up fees.
A merchant account is an agreement between a credit card processor and an organization that establishes the rules for accepting credit card transactions and transferring funds. A merchant account is connected to your organization's bank account so that the funds processed can be transferred directly to your organization. Without a merchant account you cannot accept credit or debit card transactions directly into your organization's bank account. Be wary of services that do not provide you with your own merchant account as part of their service.
Recurring transactions are donations or payments that are set up once and process on a recurring basis over time. Typically church members set up recurring tithes/gifts that recur each week or month or donors set up recurring donations that recur each month, quarter or year. The Acceptiva service manages the ongoing processing of recurring transactions so that you don't have to. We send receipts to donors each time a recurring transaction takes place and send your organization a summary of recurring transactions each day. We even notify donors if their recurring charge fails to process for any reason.
The Recurring Transaction Monthly Processing Fee includes recurring transaction capabilities on ALL of your Acceptiva pages and so at just $10.00 per month this is a great time and work saving feature that your bookkeeper will love and your donors will appreciate too!
Non Payment Transactions are registrations, sign ups and RSVPs etc,. that occur on Acceptiva pages but do not involve a dollar amount payment. Acceptiva can build and host Non Payment pages for your organization that you can use to allow for registrations, sign ups and RSVPs where no payment is accepted at the time of the registration, sign up or RSVP. These Non Payment Transactions still generate an automatic customized receipt and notification and all data is stored in the Acceptiva Client Manager for you to view and download as needed.
The Payment Card Industry governs merchants security compliance via the PCI DSS standards. These standards require that all merchants maintain PCI compliance via a yearly compliance check (questionnaire) that confirms that the merchant maintains their organization's environment in a secure and safe manner relative to the storage and communication of credit card numbers. The PCI Compliance Fee pays for the management of this PCI compliance process. The fee is $28.80 for the first quarter and then $18.80 per quarter upon completion of the online compliance questionnaire. The PCI compliance requirement and fee is applicable to all merchant accounts regardless of the merchant account provider.
