Payment Gateways

With Nimble AMS, you can set up one or more payment gateway to accept Community Hub donations and stored payments for your entity(s). Each payment gateway record includes the information needed for Nimble AMS to communicate to a third-party payment gateway.

A payment gateway is used for a few specific types of payments in Community Hub when constituents:

  • Make a donation
  • Pay for an order using a stored payment method

A payment gateway is not used with standard credit card payments in Community Hub or in the Staff View order process at this time.

Nimble AMS supports Authorize.Net as a payment gateway, and can be set up in different ways depending on your needs.

Single Entity Using the Same Payment Gateway

In the simplest payment gateway set up, you can receive payment on behalf of one entity using a payment gateway. To do this,administrators can set up a single payment gateway with an entity payment gateway linking to your association's single entity.

Multiple Entities Using the Same Payment Gateway

To receive payments on behalf of more than one entity using a single payment gateway, administrators can set up a single payment gateway with multiple entity payment gateways linking to your association's entities.

Multiple Entities Using Different Payment Gateways

To receive payments on behalf of your different entities using multiple payment gateways, administrators can set up multiple payment gateways, each with an entity payment gateway linking to one of your association's entitys.
