When a donor submits one of your donation pages, the secure payment information is submitted to what is called a “payment gateway”. These gateways then authorize the donation, to process the funds, and then, feed back those transaction details to Engaging Networks.
In order to receive funds to sustain your critical work, you will need to select one (or a few) payment gateways to meet the needs of your constituents. A few things to consider are payment methods, currencies, supporter management capabilities, and your recurring payments.
To simplify your decision-making process, we have built out a payment gateway donation quiz. This quiz is meant to help support your research, however, you will want to ensure all the diverse requirements and specifications for your organization are addressed with the payment gateway you select.
