Because of newly added fees by our website provider, Wild Apricot, Washington Evaluators is no longer using PayPal to process payments. When visitors to the Washington Evaluators website pay online for membership or events, they will be directed to a secure Wild Apricot payment screen to make the payment. From here, they can pay using any of the credit or debit cards that have enabled as part of their payment settings.
On the payment screen, the payer can choose to save their credit or debit card details for future transactions. The next time they register or renew membership from the Washington Evaluators website, they can choose to pay using any of their saved cards instead of entering the card information. After the payment is processed, the visitor is returned to the Invoices and payments tab on their site profile, where an invoice will appear, along with a payment entry, if the payment was successful.
For security reasons, credit card information is not stored in Wild Apricot and Washington Evaluators does not have access to this information. Instead, it is securely transmitted to AffiniPay where it is processed. AffiniPay then returns the status of the payment transaction, which is recorded in your Wild Apricot transaction details.
