Card Payment facility on a Club/Society Account?

by fodigie 07 February 2013  |  Comments 1 comment  |  Love Love  0 loves

I am the treasurer for a Non profit making club account with Lloyds TSB.

As it is a Treasurers Account we don't get bank charges for using the account. At the same time we don't have (or need) an overdraft facility. So far, the service received from the bank has been good.

However, as we have a lot of members paying subscriptions by cash and cheques, we would like to make this process more efficient by offering them the facility to make payment by credit/debit card over the phone. We have approached the Bank with a view to using a card reading machine for this purpose. But they have said that this service is not available on a Treasurers Account only on Business Accounts.

Are there any other banks offering this service on a Club/Society account?

Many thanks

    This is more for sports clubs but may work for your NFP club as they have some 'free' payment scheme attached using Direct Debits

    We may be using it at the kids football club next year, so no experience as to how it actually works, sorry!
