Process Credit Card Payments
A valid payment gateway must be set up before credit card payments can be processed.
Credit card payments can be processed as an individual payment on the Contacts page or through batch processing.
To process a credit card payment, click 'Pay Type' and select 'Credit Card' when adding a new payment.
Depending on the payment gateway you use, you will be prompted to add new card details for the transaction. You can save new card details when adding a new card by clicking the 'Save Card' option.
If the donor already has a saved credit card, you can click the 'Saved Cards' option and select a card from the drop down list.
Note: Vega requests a token from the payment gateway and does not store credit card data.
When saving the payment, Vega will process the transaction for one-off payments or create a recurring payment record to be processed as per the recurrence schedule.
Some payment gateways will process a $1 authorisation fee on the supplied credit card. The transaction is used to validate the card and will be automatically released with 7 days. You may wish to include this notification on your donor receipt.
