For faculty and staff



Credit card processing options for county offices

County extension councils have two options for accepting credit cards:

  1. MU Off-Campus Credit Card System
  2. QuickBooks Merchant, an add-on application of the accounting software

To access the credit card applications, the county must complete a selection form signed by the council chair, faculty and staff must complete security training, sign a technology agreement and participate in training for the application of choice.

To sign up, contact Callie Glascock, 573-882-4522 or GlascockCK@missouri.edu.
