Choosing The Right Payment Solution For Your Organization

by


In order for an organization to accept online payments through TeamPages it’s necessary to set up a payment solution. This includes both a merchant account and payment gateway.

TeamPages has integrated with a few of the most popular payment solutions. Here is some information on each option including setup costs, transaction fees and integration steps. Please contact us if you would like help to determine the most optimal setup for your organization.

Beanstream – Electronic Payment Processing

For organizations without a merchant account, Beanstream is the fastest, often most cost effective way to begin accepting credit cards and debit cards online.

As a TeamPages preferred vendor, we have pre-negotiated the following rates for our non-profit clients:

The setup cost is $99 and monthly costs are $15 plus a blended rate of 2.24% plus 25 cents per transaction, which includes both the merchant account, and the payment gateway fees.

To begin the application process you can either contact them directly, or get in touch with your TeamPages account manager. To then connect your Beanstream.com account with TeamPages, supply your TeamPages account manager with the Merchant ID for your account.

Authorize.net Payment Gateway

For organizations with an existing online merchant account, Authorize.net can be used as a payment gateway that hooks into the TeamPages platform.

You can create an account directly through the Authorize.net website. You’ll have to contact a service rep to connect your existing merchant account to your new Authorize.net payment gateway.

To then connect your Authorize.net payment gateway with TeamPages, supply your TeamPages account manager with both the API Login ID and Transaction Key.

PayPal Website Payments Pro

Website Payments Pro is a PayPal product that is a combined merchant account and payment gateway. A Website Payments Pro account is an enhanced version of a standard PayPal account so you may still need to apply for a Website Payments Pro account.

PayPal will notify you within 2 business days of your organization’s status. Once approved, your organization will be able to accept online payments.

PayPal Website Payments Pro has a $30/month fee. There is a transaction fee per transaction that is between 2.2 – 2.9% + 30 cents. The percentage is based on the previous month’s transaction volume. More information can be found here.

PayPal Website Payments Standard

While this solution is unable to be integrated into your TeamPages website and rather simply links back to PayPal, this is easiest way to collect payments using TeamPages online form builder.

Adding a PayPal account is quick, simple and a great solution for teams and organizations that aren’t collecting a lot of fees. There is no monthly fee for a PayPal account, and the transaction fees are competitive with some of the other merchant services out there (2.9% + 30 cents per transaction).

To connect a PayPal account to your online form, simply toggle online payments on, select PayPal as your preferred payment option, and then verify your account in step 2 of the form creation.
