What are Gather's Payment Integration Options?
Gather offers a couple of options for storing credit cards & processing payments via Gather. All options are PCI compliant - making this process very safe & easy for both you and your guest! It's important to note that with PCI compliance, credit card information is encrypted as soon as the guest submits it. This means the only way to charge the card would be through the integrations via Gather.
With the Stripe integration, Stripe is responsible for processing your credit card transactions. They have a blended rate processing fee of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction, plus a 0.3% Gather fee per transaction. Stripe then deposits the money directly into the bank account of your choosing on a rolling 2-3 day basis!

Current Merchant Processor Integration
With this option, you are able to integrate your current merchant processor with Gather. This allows you to keep the rates that you've already negotiated with your own merchant processor. You will also pay a Gather fee of 0.5% per transaction on top of the merchant processing rate.
Below is a list of some of the merchant processors we have integrated with in the past. Don't see yours listed? Contact us to see if your current processor is compatible!
- First Data (North front-end, North or Omaha backend)

Gather cannot accept international payments through the payment integrations. a US billing address is required.
Disconnecting a previous payment integration for your location will remove any previously stored credit cards on file within your bookings.
