Here’s some great news for the civic-minded. Political fundraising organizations can now use GoPayment to process credit card donations on the most popular mobile devices while collecting the donor information often required to be legally compliant.
New Features for Political Fundraising
As is often required by law, GoPayment helps enable fundraisers to collect donor information, such as the donor’s name, address, employer and occupation. It also enables fundraisers to add a customized legal disclaimer that appears on the GoPayment screen that donors can read and accept before donating funds.
Campaigns can also add multiple staff members or volunteers to a single GoPayment account. In addition, administrators can monitor all GoPayment transactions via an online dashboard where they can track their progress, run reports, add or remove users, and set different permission levels for them.
For added protection and professionalism, campaign fundraisers can ask donors to authorize their transaction by signing it on the mobile device. The campaign can then send donors a text or email receipt, which may include the political campaign’s logo, donation amount, and a map of where the transaction took place. The funds are then deposited into the campaign’s bank account.
In addition to using the latest encryption technology, Intuit’s card processing platforms comply with Payment Card Industry standards and GoPayment adheres to PCI rules.
