How do I open a credit card processing or merchant account?

You wish to receive credit card payments through your website and need to select a payment processor in order to do so.

Please consider using DoJiggy's Merchant Services. We offer great rates, free setup and easy integration with our websites.

Basic requirements are listed below:

  • Your organization’s legal name, EIN or Federal ID #, address and phone number
  • Contact person and phone - the organization's E.D, Treasurer, or someone with signing authority on bank accounts
  • Your bank’s name and 9 digit routing number
  • Your bank account number (where you will receive funds)
  • Expected monthly sales volume (includes all credit card funds you will process) & Average credit card sale (donation, ticket sale, etc.)
  • 501(c)3 approval letter from the IRS verifying your non-profit status

Let us know if we can assist with your payment processing needs. We will send you a form to complete then schedule a time to open the merchant account with you by phone.

We also support various other payment processors. Each payment processor has their own requirements and fees. Please contact them directly for account information.
