What Is WePay?
WePay is our donation and membership payment processor. WePay is the leading provider of payments-as-a-service for online platforms. When you create your SustainingGood.com site from the US, a WePay account is created for you to collect your donations and/or process your memberships, but you will need to setup your account details with WePay.
Once you create your SustainingGood.com site, WePay will accept donations/memberships, but cannot provide the funds to you until you setup your banking information directly with WePay. We encourage you to set up this account as soon as possible to ensure that you receive your funds in a timely manner. You can setup your account during the self-signup process, or if you choose to skip it at that point, then you can setup the WePay account from the Admin Tools. This is done under the "Administration" section, "Configure Payment Processing" selection.
During the Self Sign-up and WebSite Creation process, the last step prompts you to setup your WePay account:
To setup your WePay account here, simply select the "Authorize" button, and you will be taken to the WePay site to create your WePay account (you will need to create an account, login, and enter your information). Upon completion of this process, you will be returned to the SustatiningGood.com Sign-up process to complete your WebSite creation.
If you select the "Skip For Now" option during Sign-up, you can go back and setup your WePay account from the Administration Tools once your site is created. Under the Administration Menu, select the "Confugure Payment Processing" option.
From the Configure Payment Processing screen, select "WePay Account Authorization" and you will be taken to the same WePay window as if you had selected it during Sign-up.
You'll then create your WePay account login, enter your organization's incorporation and banking information, and complete the authorization process.
Once setup, your funds will begin to flow directly into your bank account from WePay as donations / memberships flow in through your new SustainingGood.com site.
