Salsa Labs uses Merchant Services as the payment gateway to provide seamless credit card authorization for donations. Using your current web access, Salsa CRM sends the request to CardPointe and within seconds your credit card transaction is completed and the authorization number is recorded in Salsa CRM for future reference. In order to implement Credit Card Authorization a few simple modifications to your Salsa CRM configuration are required.
The donation web page accepts a credit card number as a payment type. Prior to downloading the donation data in Salsa CRM, CardPointe has processed the credit card for you; you will only need to process the donations in Salsa CRM so that they will be included in all of your reports, queries, etc.
