If I can text money to a friend… anyone should be able to email and text donations to a charity? Right? Nonprofits need guidance from those of you who know the technology so we can compare the products.
I’d encourage you to check with the company providing your membership/donor software. They should have partnerships with payment providers. Options that they would have vetted, integrated with, and that focus on nonprofits.
The needs of each organization vary pretty heavily. If you only accept payment virtually then you don’t need someone that specializes in point-of-sale work. You might have a shop or storefront that needs processing.
Check with your software vendor. I can speak for Fresh Vine – as it’s founder – that we partnered with providers with a range of services. We deeply integrate with our partners so you can manage recurring gifts, payment methods, & donations from our software. Many other membership platforms have likely taken a similar approach to Fresh Vine.
