What is Neon Payment Processing?

Neon Payment Processing is a gateway option for processing credit cards that works through NeonCRM instead of through a third party processor like BluePay, Authorize.net, or WorldPay.

Why would I want to use Neon Payment Processing?

With Neon Payment Processing, you can access the full details of all payments received (including transaction fees), issue full or partial refunds, view balances, and dispute charges all without ever leaving NeonCRM.

Neon Payment Processing is the only payments gateway that allows you to view transaction fees, issue refunds, or dispute charges from within NeonCRM.

Limitations of the current version:

  • Currently only accepts credit card processing. We will add support for ACH payments in a future release.
  • Only supported for US clients.

How do I get Neon Payment Processing?

This feature is not enabled by default in NeonCRM. If you would like to sign up, please submit a ticket to our Support department.


Setup

When the feature is enabled, a new Payment Processing section will appear in your main navigation menu:

zd_npp_in_menu.jpg

At this point, the only options you'll have under this heading will be "Verify Your Account" and "Settings".

Click "Verify Your Account" in the Payment Processing menu and provide the necessary data to complete the verification process.

  1. Contact Information
    Enter the legal name, Social Security number, date of birth, and email address for your organization's primary billing contact.
  2. Organization Information
    Enter the name, Tax ID (EIN), and address of your organization.
  3. Bank Account
    Enter the Routing and Account numbers of the bank account associated with this gateway.

Once you have completed these fields, click Submit Verification.

zd_npp_submit_verification.jpg

Your information will then be sent for Guidestar verification of your organization's 501(c)(3) status.

If 501(c)(3) status cannot be verified, you will receive the following notification:

zd_npp_no_501c3.jpg

If your organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (or has an application in process), select the first of the two available options. You will be given information on whom to contact for assistance. Until verification is complete, your status on the Verify Account page will show as Pending.

zd_npp_no_501c3_yet.jpg

If your organization is not and will never be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, select option 2 and click Complete Verification.

After your account has been verified, the Settings page will display the verified account information. You will also be able to configure the following additional settings:


Payout Settings

To receive funds for payments you’ve processed, Neon Payment Processing will make deposits (payouts) of your available account balance into your bank account. This account balance is comprised of different types of transactions (e.g., payments, refunds, etc.). You can manage how frequently these deposits occur.

Click Edit in the Payout Settings section to change the payout frequency:

zd_npp_payout_settings.jpg

If you select the Monthly option, you will be able to choose on which day of each month you would like your payouts to occur.

If you select the Weekly option, you will be able to choose a specific day of the week.
