FT. WALTON BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/13 -- Global eTelecom, Inc. (GETI), a premier electronic check, ACH, and Gift/Loyalty card processor, and zGateway, makers of secure payment and donation platforms, announce the integration of ACH check processing into the zDonate gateway. GETI's Consumer Convenience Fee service has been implemented to enable non-profits to accept payments via ACH (automated clearing house) transactions and retain the entire donation without paying transaction fees. Non-profits using the zDonate platform will realize higher donation income by reducing transaction costs and retaining the full amount from donors.

zDonate utilizes a Consumer Convenience fee model to eliminate processing costs for the non-profit organization. Consumers opt-in to pay a fee that covers the cost of processing the transaction for the non-profit. zDonate integrates easily with management and fundraising software. This enables software developers to create a seamless fundraising solution for organizations that use their software.

"The zDonate secure donation platform reduces operating expenses for non-profits, allowing them to make use of monetary donations without paying for the cost of the transaction," said John Laurell, V.P. of technical operations for GETI. "The ease with which zDonate can be integrated into non-profit management software removes pain-points for 501(c)3 organizations, and lets them direct more donation revenue to their mission, rather than operational costs."
