Blackbaud MobilePay is now available in the Apple® App Store and the Android® Play Store to nonprofits in the United States using Blackbaud Merchant Services. Blackbaud clients receive up to two complimentary Blackbaud MobilePay card readers.

"Blackbaud MobilePay was an enormous hit at our recent golf tournament," said Scott Lenzi, Partners Healthcare's director of web applications and strategy. "We not only raised more money, but we also made it easier than ever on our supporters and administrators - and impressed everyone by having an easy, modern payment option."

Blackbaud developed the mobile payment application with the unique needs of nonprofits in mind. "Blackbaud MobilePay enables nonprofits to easily accept mobile credit card payments out in the field and during special events, while also improving the efficiency of processing, reporting and receipting," said Steve Klein, Blackbaud's head of payment services. "And, with Blackbaud's low processing fee and ease of built-in reconciliation, nonprofits can allocate more of their time and savings directly to their mission."

How Blackbaud MobilePay works:

  • Nonprofits can accept credit and debit card payments anywhere within minutes. Once logged in to the MobilePay app on an iPhone®, iPad® or Android® device, users simply enter the amount, the payee's email, swipe the card and obtain a signature.

  • A personalized email receipt is sent after each transaction.

  • Funds collected are disbursed with other transactions processed via Blackbaud Merchant Services.

"I absolutely recommend MobilePay - setup is easy, it works flawlessly, and its ease of use and quality of the card readers beat the competition hands-down," said Ed Doolittle, AID Atlanta's development officer. "The receipting and reporting are excellent - finance likes the fact that all charges are in one place, making it easy to know what will be coming in a disbursement."

As an extension of Blackbaud Merchant Services, Blackbaud MobilePay users receive:

  • Lower rates - Blackbaud's simple, low OneRATE for all major credit cards with no extra mobile fees or setup costs

  • Simplified bank reconciliation - All card types deposited at the same time with a list of all transactions included

  • Secure payment processing - Simplified PCI compliance - no scans or audits required

  • Comprehensive support - One company supporting nonprofit software and all payment activities
