Melissa joins host Steve Boland to discuss the evolving state of accepting donations and payments, from traditional online credit card processing to contactless payments (such as Apple Pay or Google Pay with a phone), to app-based donations or payments. Melissa shares her insight on costs of processing (hint: there is going to be some), integrating data systems to processing, and new players trying to emerge in a crowded space.
