With Blackbaud MobilePay, you can accept and process credit card payments – such as for tickets, admission, and merchandise – through Blackbaud Merchant Services, anywhere with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. To process credit cards through your mobile phone or tablet, simply download the free application from the App Store and request your complimentary credit card readers from Blackbaud. It’s that easy!
Blackbaud’s free app and readers help ease Point-of-Sale transactions. You pay the same low rate on every transaction, with no hidden or additional fees, regardless of the credit card used. Blackbaud MobilePay transactions automatically disburse and reconcile with your other Blackbaud Merchant Services transactions, so there’s no need for separate bank deposits. Also, Blackbaud MobilePay card readers encrypt credit card data to automatically secure your transactions.

•A more streamlined login experience
•Easy device management across your organization from within the app
Ratings and Reviews
Does not work with iOS 12
Developer should know to test their app with new iOS versions prior to public release. This is critical software for event revenue.
I downloaded the app to my phone prior to a fundraising event and tested it a week beforehand. At the event it worked great for taking credit card gifts and I think some guests felt more comfortable with this option than with writing their credit card numbers down on pledge cards. The only glitch was with the import into eTapestry. The process was not automatic or as streamlined as I would have liked. I finally gave up trying to import and added the Mobile Pay gifts manually. But the Blackbaud folks say they are working on the process!
Failed at Event
This app has always worked for us, but at one of our largest events, the app malfunctioned. Must have been the update; do they not test updates first? Using iPads, the app connects but everything grays out after credit card is swiped. Please fix ASAP. If we didn't have iPhones to fall back on our charity would have lost significant money. Products such as this need to be reliable!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
