NELNET (credit card payment gateway platform)

Sep. 24, 2020

Jesse Buxton, Fiscal Officer, Extension Operations, has worked with the Treasurer’s Office to roll out the new NelNet payment platform for all county offices to accept credit card payments. This gateway is very flexible, and can handle payments for goods and services; including many of the registration payments we have historically funneled through CVENT (and things we wanted to use CVENT for that our contract limitations kept us from accomplishing).

This gateway likely would be used in conjunction with a survey platform like Qualtrics. Also, anything we would invoice for could be paid through this gateway (with the exception of donations and grants). Anyone with a smartphone could also use this page to pay for soil tests, program books, etc, right at the office counter - and of course, 4-H Camps next summer! The revenue would all go to the county’s miscellaneous fund, and then our Operations team can help transfer to other chartfield values as needed.
