FamilySearch International Enters Pilot To Evaluate Secure Vault Payments For Online Donation Process

Stocks in this article: USB

FamilySearch International has signed a pilot agreement with U.S. Bank to evaluate Secure Vault Payments (SVP) as a secure and convenient online payment option for FamilySearch.org patrons to make online donations.

With SVP, FamilySearch.org visitors can initiate online donations and are automatically redirected to their own participating financial institution’s online banking platform to select which account they wish to use for payment. They are then returned to FamilySearch.org, where they receive payment confirmation.

Financial institutions authenticate the payer and provide FamilySearch with real-time authorization and confirmation of payment. Because the payer doesn’t share any financial account information, there is no need for the FamilySearch to store the payer’s account information.

“FamilySearch is enthusiastic about the integration of the SVP pilot project into its online donation process,” said Ransom Love, senior vice president of strategic relations for FamilySearch. “SVP could provide a step into the future of e-donations for FamilySearch because it significantly lowers any costs or risks associated with financial e-transactions. Our e-donation customers will appreciate not having to disclose their bank account information online when making a charitable contribution — a benefit provided through SVP’s technology.”

“U.S. Bank is excited to extend to consumers the security of using their financial institution when using SVP to make online donations to FamilySearch,” said Eric Lim, vice president and senior product manager, U.S. Bank Treasury Management.

SVP was developed by NACHA — The Electronic Payments Association, in an effort to reduce paper checks and increase use of the ACH Network. The SVP switch technology that transfers users between the biller’s site and the financial institution’s site is provided by eWise, the exclusive network provider for SVP.
