We mentioned in our September update that we were going to be simplifying the application process for Clover Donations. Well, we're excited to let you know that we have done just that! For those who have already completed the long application, no need to read on - just promise you won't get mad that you had to take a few more steps than all our new applicants!
From the moment we started creating Clover Donations, we've been committed to making the process of getting your merchant account as easy as possible. As many of you may know, applying for a merchant account is a lot like applying for a credit card, and merchant processors always require a lot of info before they issue an account. That's why our merchant partner's original application was so robust.
But now, because all of you have been so trustworthy, and because of our great relationship with BluePay, we've been able to work with them over the last month to streamline the entire merchant account application process - making signing up even faster and easier. Now you can just fill out the simplified merchant application form online, and you'll automatically be notified once you're approved and ready to accept donations.
If you have any questions regarding this new application process and what it might mean for you, don't hesitate to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
