Primary and Secondary Merchant Accounts

Which account should I use for my primary and secondary merchant accounts?

Givsum has provided Primary and Secondary Merchant Accounts for organizations requiring  separate monetary deposits for unique operations. This feature is helpful for Service Clubs operating a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Foundations, as well as a business account for membership fees and internal activities, 501(c)4 or 6.   

The Primary Merchant Account is attached to "General" donations and should be used for all regular and ongoing nonprofit activities.    

The Secondary Merchant Account can be used for non tax-deductible memberships as well as special activities associated with a business or nonprofit checking account.   

Accounts can be setup by Admins from Organization "Settings."

Instruction for setting up Merchant Accounts can be found here.
