About Bloomerang Payments

Bloomerang Payments leverages Stripe technology, trusted by thousands of businesses to accept payments online. Connect Bloomerang payments so you can:

  • Accept credit, debit, and EFT payments - Bloomerang Payments supports payments from all major credit cards, as well as EFT payments.
  • Process payments in Bloomerang and accept online payments - Process gifts directly in Bloomerang and use Bloomerang Payments with Bloomerang’s online giving forms or event registration forms.
  • Automatically update credit cards - Recurring donations and pledges are important ways to establish ongoing revenue.
