There's a place in Evergreen settings to place the PayPal API. Paypal provides the API in your customer profile, you simply copy and paste this API into the Evergreen settings. Staff can then accept credit\debit card payments via the Evergreen client and patrons can pay with debit\credit cards from My Account via the OPAC. We can process payments with a dummy patron account in the Evergreen client for anyone who doesn't have a library card (i.e copies, book sales, etc.) Staff process credit/debit card payments for meeting rooms via phone or in person via the Evergreen client; however, Paypal will allow staff to develop a payment button to place on our website that would allow patrons to pay for meeting rooms from the website, we just haven't launched this feature yet. We will shortly be launching a Donate now button on our website, that will allow patrons to send a one time or monthly recurring donation to the library using their Paypal account or credit/debit card. The amounts taken in each day are reflected in our Evergreen daily cash report. We have PayPal set up to "autosweep" our balance into our bank account each night. We have been running with this setup since 2011-2012. Last time I ran the numbers, it was averaging 9-10% of receipts in PayPal fees. Let me know if you would like any additional details.
