Credit Card Processing Solutions for Educational Institutions

Merchant Services For Schools & Universitiesschools

Educational institutions, schools, universities, technical schools and other organizations often find a need for merchant services, but have a hard time not knowing what to look for. There are a huge amount of options out in the world when choosing a credit card processor. However, many of the features offered are suited better for restaurants and retail establishments. They might not take into account the full range of needs a school or educational institution might require.

From gift and loyalty systems, online payment systems for tuition, recurring billing, and POS systems for your facility’s cafeteria, Gravity Payments offers an omni-channel approach many large institutions might need when looking for merchant services.

What features are typically used by schools & universities?

  • POS Systems
    • From the cafeteria to team stores to book stores, a point-of-sale system can be very valuable for schools. A point-of-sale system can integrate with the rest of your institution and help keep everything under one roof, simplifying accounting, management, and increasing operational efficiency.

  • Virtual Terminals
    • A virtual terminal can be a huge help for many schools. For example, a dance school might use a virtual terminal to manage the recurring billing of its students, while a university might use it for their tuition billing department or by taking payment over the phone. A virtual terminal will allow staff to accept payments on any internet enabled device. For more information on virtual terminals, click here.
  • Payment Gateways
    • A payment gateway can benefit a school or institution that has a desire to accept payments through their website. Whether you are allowing students to register for classes, order books, or buy tickets to sporting events, plugging into your school’s online shopping cart via a payment gateway can be a great tool.
