Credit cards are a convenient and secure way for attendees to pay for conference registration and other fees, and for your conference to handle payments easily. To accept credit cards, conferences use services that process the payments through a "Merchant Account" for both online and in-person payments.

IEEE credit card processing services offer the highest levels of security to minimize any risks or liabilities to your conference and your attendees.

A merchant account is a type of bank account that allows businesses to accept payments by debit or credit cards.
IEEE Credit Card Processing

IEEE offers two credit card processing services that allow you to accept credit cards and process transactions safely and easily. 

  • Merchant Account Lending Program
    Use IEEE's merchant account for credit card purchases on your conference Web site. You can use it with most conference registration applications. 
  • Credit Card Machine Rental
    Rent a credit card machine to process credit cards with immediate authorization. This service is only available in the U.S.

IEEE offers free set up of credit card processing to all conferences that use IEEE Concentration Banking. The IEEE Merchant Account Lending Program also provides access to discount rates for credit card fees.

  • Visa/MasterCard/Discover 2.9%
  • American Express 3.35%
Keeping Credit Card Information Secure

IEEE follows best industry practices for secure transactions to protect both your attendees' personal information and your conference. All IEEE credit card processing services follow Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards to protect cardholder information and to prevent credit card fraud.
