Express Payment Cart Page

To give staff a simple way for constituents to pay a cart with an outstanding balance—like if your association generates cash based membership renewals—the  Express Payment Cart  page can be accessed with a shareable URL and displays a cart with an outstanding balance. On the Express Payment Cart page, constituents can view a cart with an outstanding balance, add a donation to the balance, if it includes a membership, and quickly pay.

The page displays all standard Nimble AMS products and can be customized to display custom products as well.

Express Payment Carts that require shipping will need the information to be pre-populated by staff as non-logged in users do not have access to edit information - only to process the linked express payment.

Browsing to the Express Payment Cart Page

When staff create a cart in Staff View, they can share the URL in Payment URL with constituents which brings them to the Express Payment Cart  page which displays differently depending on the cart:

  • If the cart has an outstanding balance and has not been canceled, the outstanding balance displays.
  • When Hosted Payment Forms are enabled and a Staff User places an order, the Submit button on this page will be replaced by Proceed to Payment.

  • If the cart has no outstanding balance or no longer exists, a message displays letting constituent know.

Log In Message

If constituents are not logged into Community Hub, a message displays at the top of the page prompting them to log in or create an account. Constituents can log in to use their stored payment options or they can choose not to log in, and their payment is connected to the Online Guest Checkout account.

Reviewing an Outstanding Balance

Constituents can review the outstanding balance information, like the cart number and date, along with all products within the outstanding balance with the prices for each, and who each item is for.

Adding Donations with a Membership Renewal

If an outstanding balance contains a membership renewal, and staff have configured the membership type with a donation product(s), an additional card displays so constituents have the opportunity to make a donation. Constituents can pick to what donation product(s) and what amount they want to give.

Entering Email Information

If constituents are not logged in, they must enter at least one email to which an order summary will be sent. If constituents are logged in, their email is filled in automatically from Person Email on their account.

Constituents can enter additional emails—separated by commas—to receive an order summary. Staff can also add additional fields to this card to collect any other necessary information.

Constituents can enter up to 255 characters worth of emails, that's generally 4-6.

Viewing Price in Preferred Currency

As of Nimble AMS Winter '20 release, if your Org is enabled with Internationalization feature, and currencies are added for the logged in Community Hub user, the user can select their preferred currency from a drop down on top right to view prices in the same. 

Also, if the user's preferred currency is different from association's base currency or corporate currency, they will be shown a message informing that the final payment will be completed in association's base currency.

The system ensures the last installment does not exceed the End Date of the membership, and also that if the membership is setup with auto renew functionality, it recurs without any hassles.


If you are using the BluePay payment gateway with Hosted Payment Forms enabled, you will enter the credit/debit card details on the Payment Form of the Hosted Payment Gateway instead of Nimble AMS or Community Hub. Learn more.
