About Payment Gateways:

  • Payment gateways are a third party you pay to authorize your credit card transactions. 
  • If you don't have a payment gateway, you have to authorize the transactions yourself by keying in the credit card number or phoning it in.
  • Sometimes they collect the money for you and send you a check; others transmit the money to your merchant account. 
  • They may or may not take care of contacting donors when transactions are denied, e.g. bad credit card number or over the limit.
  • Prices vary; see our chart for details. Some charge account setup and maintenance fees.
  • IATS and Vanco are the only ones that do not require you to have a merchant account. They collect the money for you and make an electronic deposit to your account.
  • IATS has special application requirements for political campaigns. Please contact IATS for details.
