- Donations are taken securely via charities website

Tuesday 10th March 2009 - NEOVIA Financial Plc (LSE: NEO), the independent global online payments business, has added three more charities to it growing list of customers, with the announcement of separate contract wins for its NEOVIA Payment Suite.

Each charity is using the NEOVIA Payment Suite to securely process donations from visitors as they visit the websites. The NEOVIA Payment Suite features the NETBANX international payments gateway, the NETELLER e-wallet and Net+™ cards. NETBANX allows merchants to accept card and non-card payments through multiple channels including online, contact centres, mail order and via automated phone systems. The NETELLER e-wallet allows consumers to spend securely online as well as allowing merchants to increase customer lifetime value. Net+ cards allow merchants to extend customer loyalty and lifetimes. As well as cards, the NEOVIA Payment Suite supports online payments direct from consumers’ online bank accounts using the POLi service.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home famously rehomes dogs and cats, and promotes responsible ownership. It costs over £10 million a year to care for all the dogs and cats that come into the Home and every animal receives the highest quality of veterinary and behavioural treatment. From its online shop visitors can buy gifts for their cat or dog as well as paying for books and make a monetary donation.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity founded in London in 1852 was the first hospital to provide in-patient beds specifically for children in the English-speaking world. It needs to raise over £50 million each year to support the world-class work conducted there. Visitors can make quick and safe one off donations directly from the website.

Meningitis Trust supports everyone whose life has been changed by meningitis and associated septicaemia which affects some 500,000 people in the UK. Donations are quickly and safely managed through a simple contribution section hosted by NETBANX.

Dan Starr, Executive Vice President of the Merchant Services division at NEOVIA, said: “Each charity is using NEOVIA Financial to process donations received via their respective websites. It’s easy to lose an opportunity to ask and take a donation when you don’t have the right payment type available, but these charities and their causes will reap the benefits through using the NEOVIA Payment Suite.”
