PITTSBURGH, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DonorPro, a premier provider of fundraising solutions for nonprofit organizations, and CardConnect, one of the nation's fastest-growing providers of payment processing services, today announced the launch of DonorPro Merchant Services. DonorPro Merchant Services helps nonprofits of all sizes accept credit cards, collect more donations and keep a higher percentage of those dollars earned.
DonorPro Merchant Services gives nonprofit organizations simple, secure and highly affordable donation processing. By accepting all card types – including transactions made with American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa – at one fixed rate, nonprofits are guaranteed the removal of all hidden fees on their monthly statements.
"One aspect of fundraising that is often overlooked is the actual processing of the funds that are raised. Nonprofits can be taken advantage of with hidden fees and restrictions on accepting certain forms of donations," said Donna Myers, President at DonorPro. "By teaming up with CardConnect, a company known for its transparency and secure payment technology, we're able to offer nonprofits the card processing services they deserve at a rate they will appreciate."
DonorPro Merchant Services also offers nonprofits free mobile credit card readers to use at their fundraising events, ACH (also known as eChecks) payment acceptance, automatic processing and settlement for recurring gifts and pledges, pre-authorization for event attendees prior to a fundraiser, free online donation forms, an online shopping cart and next-day bank deposits. "Our Merchant Services customers will also realize that the platform is fully integrated into our DonorPro family of fundraising tools, meaning no double entry of contributions is required and the speed and accuracy related to capture and reporting increases substantially," adds Myers.
"While CardConnect has made monetary donations in the past to charities we hold dear, partnering with DonorPro allows us to support nonprofits the best way we know how – by providing them with the integrated, secure, economical and transparent payment products and services on which we've built our company," said Brian Shanahan, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman at CardConnect. "DonorPro has created solutions that are synonymous in the nonprofit community with excellence in fundraising. We're proud to provide technology that helps these organizations accept more donations anywhere at anytime, and put more of those dollars toward their causes."
