Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) March 10, 2011
Mountain Media (http://www.mountainmedia.com), a national ecommerce solution provider focused on search-engine friendly ecommerce products and services and headquartered here in the Capital Region, announced today that they are launching an initiative to help support local charities. By offering free setup of their popular “Web Payment Software” for the collection and processing of online donations and online event registrations, Mountain Media hopes to help local charitable organizations expand their funding by providing them with the much-needed technology to accept credit card payments on their existing websites.
Web Payment Software (http://www.web-payment-software.com) serves as a payment gateway, virtual terminal and also includes the ability for merchant-generated website “payment pages” giving charities and organizations a long-awaited alternative to Paypal. The software’s flexibility provides merchants and organizations an affordable way to accept credit cards over the Internet on their existing website whether its usage is for traditional web payments, donations, membership drives, or registering for events and conferences.
The first local charity to take advantage of this offer is Peak Season Century (http://www.peakseasoncentury.com) of Lake George. This annual cycle ride benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), and last year over 80% of registration fees were donated directly to LLS to fight blood cancers. “When we heard about Mountain Media’s offer, we jumped at the chance to increase our event registrations and reduce the costs associated with taking credit card payments online.” Said Michael Kramer, vice president of the organization. “We anticipate a savings of almost 40% by utilizing Web Payment Software compared with our previous online event registration solution and that savings to us means more money can go to our cause”.
Mountain Media’s online payment solutions can save businesses and organizations up to 67% when compared to competing online payment systems, online donation software and online event registration solutions.
“Although we serve a national market, Mountain Media is dedicated to supporting our local community,” stated James Curley, CEO of Mountain Media, the creators of Web Payment Software. “After launching the latest version of our online payment software, we wanted to give back to the community by offering local charities the opportunity to use it for free to collect their online donations. In an economy where nonprofits and charitable organizations struggle to increase donations, the key to maintaining a steady influx of donor-dollars seems to be by offering as many options as possible when it comes to methods for individuals to make their donation. The easier it is for an individual to give, the more likely they will be to do so and so, we would welcome any local organization to contact us to take advantage of this offer”.
