Powerful Donation Processing — Simplified Receivables

Your donors’ payment preferences are quickly evolving, but are your donation systems and processes
ready to keep pace? Donation systems should be optimized to provide your donors with the
flexibility of payment methods that they increasingly demand, while also maximizing efficiencies,
improving data accuracy and reducing costs for your nonprofit.

Today’s growing portfolio of available payment methods and channels has added new levels of
complexity to donation processing — often requiring systems from multiple vendors, which can
create duplicate work for your organization. ETran from FTNI simplifies acceptance, processing,
posting and management of any donation type, helping organizations grow by streamlining
operations while increasing convenience and flexibility for your donors.

Any Payment Type. Any Payment Channel. One Platform.

Unlike traditional, disparate, standalone solutions, ETran’s easy-to-deploy, modular design seamlessly integrates virtually every possible payment channel within a single interface — providing consolidated settlement, posting, reporting and reconciliation. No changes to current administration processes, bank and processor relationships, or other accounting software is required. And, ETran’s secure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) interface fully handles the burden of PCI DSS compliance — allowing your Nonprofit to focus on growing donations rather than ongoing IT, compliance and administration.

Your Donors are Mobile. Are You?

ETran Mobile empowers your organization with the ability to accept mobile remote deposit capture (mRDC), ACH, credit or debit card payments securely, either via a stand-alone app, or by integrating a donation component into your existing mobile application. All donations continue to leverage the ETran cloud-based platform, continuing the strategy that all donations are processed and posted from a single platform.


“One gateway relationship is really quite amazing. Because the receipting is done inside of the FTNI software, I only have one place to go to get all our financial receipts for my finance and donor offices, and that’s big...The relationship can only be described as stand and deliver. The product has been great, but the people behind the product have been amazing.”
