  • Process payments.
  • Detailed reporting.
  • Process refunds if needed.
  • Better cut-off times for reporting purposes - sometimes previous day's transactions are reported on the next day's reports.
  • Include Discover card transactions in the same deposit with the other cards.
  • Take out fees immediately instead of waiting until the end of the month and doing a lump sum.
Well suited for online sales, online processing of donations, running different fund raising campaigns and using iATS as the funds processor.
Not as well suited if you want to have the credit card fees taken out at the time the funds are deposited into the bank account - iATS runs a separate charge at the end of the month for this, resulting in minor discrepancies at times (due to rounding).

  • Excellent customer service
  • Can process ACH transactions as recurring donations
  • Integrates with Salesforce
  • Records name of credit card holder in iATS reports
  • Can process recurring donations on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis
  • 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.
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.
