AlignPay is a payment processing platform on a mission: to support freedom of speech and economic interaction by delivering tools that enable donations, contributions, and payments to be processed in a safe, private, and secure manner.
We think one of humankind’s most important advances has been the creation of economies in which everyone –irrespective of their race, religion, origin, gender, or philosophy –has the right to participate within the law. Because this freedom isn’t yet universal, we created AlignPay to help make a welcoming and inclusive “economic square” available to all.
Well, we’re big believers in freedom. Looking back at history, we believe the contributions of so many women and men were tragically lost due to heavy-handed restrictions on free speech and assembly. We think the American Experiment has proven to be a profound success precisely because of the protections established by the First Amendment, and we think anything that preserves and strengthens such freedoms within the law is a good thing for all. So, we created AlignPay to help out.
Anyone who wants to make a donation, contribution, or payment to a cause, organization, campaign, or merchant they believe in and want to support. You may be a parent who wants to join the fight against childhood disease, a community member who supports a candidate for positive change, or a customer who’s interested in making a purchase in a safe and private manner. Whoever you are, AlignPay is here to make your transaction easy and secure.
Simply click on the Get Started button to fill out our merchant application. You will then receive an approval email from our trusted partner, EpicPay, and gain immediate access to a secure Virtual Terminal, which will enable you to process credit card and ACH (eCheck) transactions as well as view all reporting features. Additionally, you will receive your custom Hosted Donation Page links within 24-48 hours so you can add online donation acceptance to your website.
We’re proud to deliver fast onboarding and integration, market-leading APIs, and 24/7 support. We specialize in credit, debit, ACH, keyword text-to-give, and shopping cart plug-ins. We make it possible for users to customize their platforms with branding, donation amounts, recurring transactions, and much more. And we provide all this with the security of rigorous encryption and PCI compliance.
We work hard to make sure you receive your donations, contributions, and payments as quickly as possible. In general, deposits from credit and debit card transactions will be received within 2 business days, and deposits from ACH (eCheck) transactions will be within 3 business days.
Our low processing fee of 3.5% plus $0.30 per transaction is assessed from each transaction as it is processed. For example, if you receive a $100 donation, you will receive $96.20 in approximately 2-3 business days. Please note that other applicable fees may apply –please see your EpicPay merchant agreement for details.
We never pick sides on any issue and instead exist solely to facilitate a welcoming “economic square” where people, organizations, campaigns, and merchants can interact in a healthy, open, and legal way. That said, we do not permit our services to be used to support crime, civil torts, or other unlawful acts, (see our Terms of Service here).
