Who is the payment processor that MemberHub uses?
MemberHub uses Heartland School Solutions (MySchoolBucks) to process all transactions. HSS is owned by Global Payments which is one of the world’s largest merchant services companies.
Do we have to use Heartland or can we use online payment platforms?
MemberHub is only integrated with Heartland. All payments through MemberHub will be routed to your PTA checking account automatically and you will have a robust reporting feature inside your PTA portal for all transactions you originate.
Why you will want to use MemberHub payments.
Since the payments are processed by Heartland there is no need to use personal social security numbers! MemberHub makes changing board members, teachers and parents year after year easy. Using this function has the added benefit of automated upload of membership info and routing of dues to your state PTA and your school's PTA.
Heartland has excellent features for schools including school lunch payments and schools stores including a MSB Anywhere point of sale system that you can use as a cash register in your school for all events and items. We will be integrating features to include the ability to pay for school lunches if your school has MSB and create your personal PTA school store inside MemberHub later in 2017. Be on the lookout for more information!
