Hello all,

A non-profit that has a small international network is asking me to create a site where people can pay for membership, donations or products in the different countries where they have offices.

The problem is, the payments need to go to the specific national office. That is, if someone in Spain signs up, the payment needs to go to the Spanish office; if someone in Canada signs up, to the Canada office, etc. I can't see at all how to do this simply? I don't want to use paypal, because I want this to look professional, but can't figure out how to set up a payment system where the money would go to a different office depending on the country.

Am I missing something entirely here?

thanks for any help!

You might check WorldPay to see what they can do but you might need an account for each office due to the banking regulations and Visa / MasterCard regulations.

Might be not what you need , you may redirect people to different payment pages depending upon originating ip

Corey and jcodemasters, many thanks for the tips - I'll definitely check both out. I had no idea that this type of service existed. yes, it seems to me too that each country office would need to open an account with them, so that the moneys could be directed to their bank account.

benevolent001, redirecting is not a problem here because people will automatically be on their own country's sub-site from the start.

Thanks again! :)

Right - paypal just doesn't seem professional enough for this site.

Keep in mind that depending on the country, Paypal offers an API that will allow users to stay on the site.

> Paypal offers an API ...

Whoa I didn't realize that at all - So in that case the form is on the site, and paypal handles the transaction and sends back a no/no-go so the site "knows" if it went through?

Go to Paypal from your computer and you will see more information. Website Payments Pro is also available for UK.

There is another option out there. 2checkout allows international payments as well. To receive money in the country specified you would set up a 2Checkout account for each institution, then create checkout buttons for each separate account.
