Credit Card Processing for County Offices

County extension councils have two options for accepting credit cards:

  1. Stand-alone Zon machine
  2. QuickBooks Merchant, an add-on application of the accounting software

       Summary of options

       Example of Costs Associated with Accepting Credit Cards

Before a county office may use either of the credit card options, the county must complete a selection form signed by the council chair; the link to that form is below.  In addition, each member of the county office staff who will be processing credit card transactions must complete an initial security training and sign a Cardholder Data Processing Agreement & Annual Training Form.

To sign up, contact Patrick Kurtz, 573-882-2176 or kurtzp@missouri.edu.
