EVO processes in 150+ currencies across 50 markets worldwide
Through its European subsidiary, EVO operates as a principal member of MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Europe. RaiseDonors has partnered with EVO merchant services to facilitate the merchant account services thru Authorize.net.
When EVO has finished provisioning your merchant account, you'll receive an email inviting you to your new (or existing) Authorize.net account. This is a great start - but it likely does NOT include all the features you need to go live as there are services specific to Authorize.net that are not available thru EVO.
EVO Merchant Services Check List
Below is a check list provided by RaiseDonors to ensure every appropriate feature with EVO is in place to go live with RaiseDonors.
EVO facilitates all of the major card brands: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Diners Club, and JCB along with the variations of each brand (ie: Reward cards, partner program cards, etc). These brands will be included by default with your EVO merchant account.
Since AMEX has its own authorization network, American Express credit cards are not enabled by default. You will want to ask EVO merchant services to enable AMEX in your account. It is OK to proceed without AMEX, but you will not be able to collect donations from donors using an AMEX credit card.
EVO merchant services does not participate in any ACH/E-Check transactions. This service is provided directly thru Authorize.net.
