Merchant Services

Today, all nonprofits must be able to accept donations by credit card. It’s the quickest and most convenient way to give and receive funds, and is considered the standard as more donors turn to mobile and online giving. 

Merkle RMG’s merchant services offer a secure PCI-compliant solution for processing credit card donations that will reduce your costs. Our flexible options can support transactions made anywhere, on any device, via any method — whether donors give online, by phone, through the mail or in person.

Economies of scale allow us to offer deeply discounted and transparent rates while ensuring end-to-end protection of your donors’ payment data. In most cases, nonprofits receive funds from settled card transactions by the next business day. 

As an optional service, revenue data from all donation channels can be sent to a consolidated reporting platform, letting you see all financial activity from a single dashboard. Our portal receives transaction data (including cash and check deposits) from any source, so finance teams can access all reporting information in one place — supporting faster reconciliation and easier analysis. 

Merkle RMG’s merchant services offer:

  • Reduced rates
  • Next-day funding
  • Easy set-up
  • Secure payment processing
  • Full visibility to all transactions
  • Real-time account views
  • Robust reporting and analytics

Contact us to explore how our merchant services can save your nonprofit money and time.
