Supported Payment Processors:
CardConnect is our default payments processor and is integrated with the GivingTools system. By signing up for GivingTools, you are signing up for 0% ACH processing and flat rate cards processing through CardConnect. Once set up by CardConnect, we activate your GivingTools account.
Base Commerce provides a variety of processing options including
tiered and interchange-plus pricing. They can be easily integrated with your GivingTools account as your
cards or ACH processor, if you wish.
No monthly fee and no PCI requirements make Stripe an attractive choice. Standard rates are 2.9¢ + 30¢ (3.5% + 30¢ for AmEx), but you can contact them for nonprofit rates.
People are familiar with PayPal Standard, and millions already have an account. You can use PayPal Standard as your only cards processor, as an option presented as an alternative to another cards processor, or not at all. Givers are taken to a prepopulated page to accept their payment and then are returned to GivingTools online giving.
