Adyen

Adyen is a good tool to manage payments and to switch between different currencies. Easy to understand, despite the poor design, it allows you to manage payments and billing easily. It is pretty useful to refund payments and check the status of refused one. You can trust list users and allow them to pay when they got locked by the system for any reason, or you can understand if the reason for rejection is due to an issue on the user side and advise accordingly.

iATS Payments

If you just need a basic payment processor, then iATS will work fine. If you are looking for more advanced integrations or automated functions then you may want to keep looking. We've utilized iATS for over 2 years and are currently in the process of switching to Classy/WePay due to the extra features they offer.

Cons

  • When looking for payments details such as last 4 digits card (for instance), it would be great to display more details about the transaction in the results, as the full name of the card holder.
  • The layout is not the best one. There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to website design.
  • A functionality to disable the credit card details instead of deleting it at all.

  • Website form integration into Salesforce needs improvement. You can create custom questions on your website, but there is no way to have the data import into certain fields, it only syncs to the database in the iATS fields, which makes reporting very difficult.
  • It's very tedious to set up a recurring donation, in fact, every time I do it I have to have their support team walk me through and ensure it's set up correctly.
  • No option for donors to elect to cover the transaction fees.
  • Automatic email notifications from online transactions are limited.
  • Sometimes (but not always) there is a one day delay in the transactions syncing to the database.

Alternatives Considered

I have used several tools to manage billing and payments in my job. It was not my choice in my company to use Adyen but we are pretty happy with it. It can be integrated very well with the other tools we use in our job and it is reliable and safe.

Authorize.Net does not currently integrate with Salesforce which was a critical function that we needed, so we switched to iATS a little over 2 years ago once we implemented our Salesforce database. We are currently in the process of switching to Classy/WePay for the added features and better field mapping capabilities.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot see any negative impact.
  • It is good to synchronize the payment details that come from Adyem in our CRM and this allows us, now, to manage refunds and subscriptions in there and get any action done in real time and recorded in all the platforms.
  • Quick and reliable it is a good tool to be used for managing and checking credit card transactions details.

  • Recurring donors have doubled by being able to automate the monthly transaction process.
  • Reporting based on information donors have filled out in online forms has been lacking due to the way the data syncs into the database. This has made donor targeting and segmentation difficult.
