One-time

Recurring Gift

Pledge (Installments)

Credit Card

The full gift amount is charged to the donor’s credit or debit card and your merchant account will deposit the gift amount to the bank account on the disbursement schedule. The card number is not saved in The Raiser’s Edge or BBPS. The donor has not authorized any future use of this card.

 

If the donor is using the form on the same date of the schedule they select and the start date is not in the future, the first transaction is charged and the credit card information is saved in BBPS for future transactions. You must use Batch each billing period to charge additional transactions. The RE:EFT module is recommended for this. Otherwise you can maintain a query or recurring batch to find gifts with pending transactions. Transactions continue until the end date or until the donor requests that the gift ends.
