memberplanet now allows you to accept payments for your group - on the go! If you are a group leader, you can use your phone to scan credit cards to accept payments of any amount, from any person, for Donation Sites, Payment forms, Quickpay Invoicing or General unspecified payments. Use this feature to get registrations for your event, raise money for a cause, or collect funds for personal transactions.
Note: you use the camera on your phone to scan the card, but it does not take or save a photo to your device.
Follow these steps to take payments on your mobile:
- Log on to the MP app
- Tap the list icon in the upper left
- Tap Collect Payment
- Tap the group for which you are raising funds
- Tap the payment item you would like to collect for (this could be a form, a donation site, or quickpay, or a general payment)
If you are collecting from an existing member -Tap the member you would like to collect from
If you are collecting from someone who has not yet been added to the group - Tap Not a Member
If non-member, enter the payer's information
To accept payment on-the-spot, make sure Pay Now is selected.
Enter the amount.
The mobile app allows group admins to collect credit card payments without any extra peripheral devices - use the camera of any iPhone or Android smartphone to read the information directly from the card.
Security is enforced on multiple levels: only group admins have access to the Collect Payment function, and the payment information is transmitted securely via SSL, encrypted and tokenized on the memberplanet servers.
