Libraries may contract with the credit card processing vendor of choice (many libraries have chosen Square) to accept credit card payments at the desk. These vendors are not connected to PINES, so any payments that are accepted in this way will need to also be entered by staff in order to update the patron's account.
Libraries may opt to take credit card payments online through the OPAC. When patrons log in to My Account, if their home library has credit card payments enabled then they will see the ability to pay online. (If the home library does not have credit card payments enabled, the patron will just see the fine information, but not the option to pay online.)
To date, every PINES library that has opted to accept credit card payments has chosen Stripe as the vendor of choice.
Evergreen is also capable of connecting with Authorize.net and with PayPal. If you wish to use one of those vendors instead of Stripe, contact the Help Desk for assistance.
