What approval is required to allow a department to accept credit cards?

Before any campus department/unit/entity may begin the process to accept card payments on behalf of the University, they must first receive appropriate approval to do so.  The approval must be granted by the eCommerce Office, the departmental business manager, and ITS if their resources will be impacted.  The department’s business representative should work with department staff to complete Initial Interest Form to Process Payment Cards.  A follow up form,  the Application to Process Credit Cards, may be required and will be provided by eCommerce once the initial form is received and reviewed.  That form may be reviewed on the S drive under Campus Merchants>eCommerce Forms>EC-APP.  The Requirements for Payment Card Processing must be completed in conjunction with all approved requests.
