CAF Bank has announced a partnership with payment solutions provider Cardsave Community to offer payment terminals to its 16,000 customers.
The payment terminals enable charities to accept credit or debit card donations or payments in person, at a charity shop, through the post or over the telephone.
Peter Mitchell, chief executive of CAF Bank said: “Cards are an increasingly important payment method for donors, and with the cheque guarantee facility for cheques recently withdrawn, this approach enables charities to take guaranteed card payments instead.”
Cardsave Community is a subsidiary of Cardsave UK for the charity and not-for-profit sector and offers charities a range of terminals on 12-month contracts.
Marc Frost, chief executive of Cardsave Community said: “We’re delighted to be working with CAF Bank. Our ethos is very similar to CAF Bank’s in that we aim to provide the same service to smaller organisations that mainstream providers give larger organisations.”
The company already works with national and local charities across the UK including the Born Free Foundation and Thames Hospicecare.
