Card Reader Quick Reference
Greater Giving’s Auctionpay Card Readers are a simple way of processing credit card transactions from your donors or supporters. These devices require a laptop or desktop PC (or tablet in the case of the Mobile Card Reader) in a 1:1 relation in order to function properly. Set up is much more simplified over the Terminals, and the process of batching your cards is all done within the Greater Giving Online software.
This guide will also be sent in hard-copy format when you receive the equipment from us. This is an essential guide to have on hand when setting up your equipment and the night of your event, as it covers everything from our PCI compliance, setting up your Card Readers, swiping credit cards, and batching charges to the bank. Because of all this information, we have also included a Table of Contents to quickly find what you are working on.
When you use the Mobile Card Readers, you will have to download the free Greater Giving app in order to integrate them into your software. When you use the Greater Giving app, you load the app up, login to your Greater Giving Online account, and access the Project you will be working in via Go Time. Without this app, you will not be able to use the Mobile Card Readers.
Also referred to as a cheat sheet, this short guide can be a significant help to your volunteers and staff on your event night.
