Methods of payment are radio buttons that appear when you process any payment or donation. If the method you want is not visible as a radio button it will need to be added under Payment Methods from the Home page.

  • Go to Payment Methods
  • Pick Create from the left menu
  • Choose the Payment Method from the Add Payment Method list 
    • The Processor will be Internal for all methods except Stripe
  • Check the Allow Public Donation checkbox if you want this payment method to be an option for all online transactions, generally, this is only selected for Stripe.

When you select a Payment Method button new data fields will appear to complete the transaction. These data fields are different for the various payment methods.

CREDIT CARD EXAMPLE - Stripe is the Credit Card processor. When you select Stripe and process a payment or a donation you will get a blue button to enter the credit card information with the vendor Stripe. Your system is PCI compliant with Stripe as a payment processor.

STOCK EXAMPLE - Some organizations accept donations of Stock or appreciated securities. The system allows users to process Stocks as a donation or payment.
