How does the Stand Alone Payment Processing Module work?

Your DonorShops system can be configured to manage recurring payments in either of two ways:

  1. Using DonorPerfect to handle all recurring payments
  2. Using DonorShops to handle all recurring payments using the Stand Alone Payment Processing Module

If your DonorShops system is configured to have DonorPerfect handle all recurring payments, then each time a recurring transaction (e.g.; a monthly pledge) is processed, DonorShops will instruct your DonorPerfect Online (DPO) system to create a recurring pledge with the appropriate amount and frequency.  In this case, your organization would manage all subsequent pledge payments through your DPO EFT Transactions functionality.

If your DonorShops system is configured to have DonorShops handle all recurring payments then the following would apply for any recurring transactions created within a DonorShops system configured in this way:

  • DonorShops will run the recurring transactions and create gift entries in your DPO system for the individual recurring payments. 
  • DonorShops will manage any recurring transactions that were created by clients via DonorShops
  • DonorShops does not manage any pledges created within DonorPerfect Online.
