Establishing a Merchant Account: the Save Payments Gateway

Accepting electronic payments like credit cards has become commonplace for organizations that plan and host fundraising events. By giving guests, donors and bidders more payment options, you can boost your organization's auction revenue. If you don't have a Merchant Account through SafeSave, chances are you are missing out on an opportunity to raise more money for your cause.To enroll in a Merchant Account, contact your ReadySetAuction account manager.

Once you have enrolled, it's important to test your Gateway to ensure it is processing payments correctly. Here's how:

Testing Your Gateway

The best way to make sure your Gateway is processing payments correctly is to test it. When testing, be sure to use a small amount, but not less than $5.00, as these tests are real transactions that will appear on a credit card statement.

  1. Navigate to and select Merchant Login.
  2. Enter your Username and Password, then click Login.
  3. Under Main Menu on the left, click Sale.
  4. Complete the required fields and hit Charge on the bottom of the page. Remember - small amounts, but a transaction cannot be less than $4.99 or you will receive an error message of “Rejected Contact Customer Service”.

Once you have confirmed that your transaction was processed, connect your Gateway to ReadySetAuction.
