Introducing Square For Online Donations
Already using Square to process in-person donations? You may now also take donations online in a quick and painless manner by utilising the same system that you have already grown to adore and know so well.
Square’s approach to merchant fees is really straightforward. There is a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 added to each transaction, but there are NO monthly fees at all. You are also able to acknowledge a diverse range of payment methods and card types.
Why Use Square To Accept Donations
With the help of the Square add-on, your donors will be able to complete the donation process by entering their credit card information without ever having to leave your site. Because of this, the experience of contributing will be improved for the donor, and you will see an increase in the number of conversions that are successful.
Square Recurring Donations
Our Recurring Donations add-on is able to communicate well with the GiveWP Square gateway.
- Donors should be able to manage and keep track of their subscriptions.
- Give recipients the option to make donations on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis.
- Synchronise subscriptions in an automated manner using Stripe webhooks.
The effectiveness of our Recurring Donations add-on, along with the dependability of the Square payment system, makes for the ideal duo.
The information is encrypted from the moment the contributor submits their credit card information up until the point at which it reaches Square’s processing environment. The private information of the donor is never stored on your server. In addition, everything is preloaded, so there is no need for any additional setup.
Get access to your money more quickly with deposits made via Square as soon as the following business day. Deposits can be made instantaneously or scheduled for the same day through Square for a nominal extra cost. Maintain a close check on your finances with real-time updates regarding the donations that have been made.
Machine learning is used by Square to analyse each payment processed through their ecosystem. No matter how many donations you are receiving, the prevention against fraud provided by this method remains the same. In the end, what this indicates is that you may be more certain that your online contributions are less susceptible to fraud than many other payment gateways that are less sophisticated.
Refund Directly Through Givewp
Within the add-on itself is the mechanism to process refunds for donations that we have created in ourselves. Changing the payment status to “Refunded” and selecting the option to also reimburse the payment through Square are also sufficient actions. The reimbursement will be processed using the Square API in a speedy and convenient manner as a result of this action.
