# Payment Processor Accounts (new)

Although, in general, any "personal" email address (@gmail.com, @live.com, @me.com, @yahoo.com, @aol.com, etc.) could be used to create a credit card processor account, in practice it is strongly recommended to use an email address directly relevant to your organization.

# Use Your Organization Website

For example, it is best (and relatively inexpensive) for an organization to register its own relevant custom domain name, if it doesn't have one); and, most domain hosting services (again, often inexpensive for an organization's needs in these cases) also provide basic email services.

In general, it is not recommended to use the "long" https://events.auctria.com/... domain, or in some cases, the shorter Preferred Domains we offer for your guests ease of use. It is always best to use your organization's domain name address.

# Use An Organization Email Address

With a relevant custom domain name and email services, you can create an appropriate email address for your organization to use for its credit card processing needs.

Using the example.com domain, some email addresses you might consider for this (using your domain name in place of example.com) could be along the following lines:

  • finance@example.com
  • accounting@example.com
  • admin@example.com


All of these addresses are mostly "generic" and may often be referred to as an alias. The idea is for the email address to be easily accessible by different individuals, as needed, to maintain a consistent channel of communication as "volunteers" may change over time.

The email address should also be easily identifiable as relevant and related to the organization.

Personal email addresses such as John@example.com or June@example.com (again, using the example.com domain name) would still not be recommended mostly due to the additional complexity in transferring the email to another individual with a different name.
