If you want to conduct online registration for a charity or fundraising golf tournament, you’ll need to implement credit card processing in order to safely and easily collect payments and donations from your constituents. Online credit card processing, also called eCommerce credit card processing or Internet credit card processing, allows your organization to utilize an online gateway for secure online payment processing of credit and debit cards. Accepting credit cards allows your organization to receive tournament registrations and money up-front, in a safe and secure environment.
Online Credit Card Processing Transactions and Uses
With an eCommerce credit card processing account, your constituents can use credit cards for:
- Golf registrations and ticket sales
- Product sales (dinner only tickets, mulligan packages, raffles and more)
- Sponsorship purchases
- Online donation campaigns
- Monthly memberships or dues
- Recurring giving campaigns
- Fundraising initiatives of all kinds
Online Payment Processing Options
We offer two options for secure credit card processing on your golf tournament websites:
- Full merchant accounts – GolfRegistrations offers merchant accounts in the US only, at this time. Fees are listed here.
- Integrated payments with DoJiggy Payments– available in the US and Canada
Both of our payment processing options have their advantages, so your choice will depend on your organization’s needs and budget. Read our blog on the difference between DoJiggy Payments, Merchant Services and PayPal.
Online Credit Card Processing Security Practices
All merchants who accept, store or transmit credit card data are required to be PCI compliant. This includes non-profit organizations, schools and churches. Even if your organization processes a very small volume of credit card sales or donations, you are required to maintain PCI security standards to protect your constituent data.
If your non-profit organization or business accepts credit cards online, you have the responsibility to follow these regulations. You can rest assured that all DoJiggy services are fully PCI compliant. But the requirement also relates to you – the merchant, ie schools and non-profits organizations, in addition to your merchant services provider and your online fundraising software provider maintaining compliance. Don’t worry – we’re here to help!
