The Division of IT provides e-commerce services to departments wishing to accept secure credit card and check payments via a web browser. In collaboration with the Treasurer’s Office and the e-commerce team, they will work with you to ensure that your e-commerce application securely accepts payments in accordance with the University’s security guidelines.
Departments wishing to accept e-commerce payments will need a "front-end" web application that meets their business need. The front-end application connects to a service provider that accepts payment in a secure environment.
The University of Missouri has contracted with Nelnet Business Solutions, Inc. (NBS) to use QuikPAY to provide online credit card and check payment processing services. Your department has several options for creating the front-end application:
- Develop the application using technical staff in your department
- Develop the application using campus information technology staff (if available)
- Purchase the application from a third-party vendor.
If you purchase an application, it may provide a way to securely accept payments. The Treasurer's Office and e-commerce team members will review the application to ensure that it securely accepts payments in accordance with the University's security guidelines.
The Treasurer's Office and e-commerce team members will work with you (and your vendor if you purchased an application) to connect your front-end application to QuikPAY to accept credit card and check payments. The University has processes in place to feed e-commerce payments to the Financial Systems General Ledger.
Please refer to the University of Missouri e-commerce procedures page to learn how to implement an e-commerce solution.
There are strict guidelines to implementing e-commerce service. For more information on e-commerce security, visit the Security & Risk Assessments service page.
The costs associated with e-commerce services include:
- QuikPAY fees which are invoiced monthly from Nelnet Business Solutions and are allocated to each department.
- Bank and gateway fees which are calculated monthly. Bank fees are automatically charged to the department MoCode/Account by the campus or Hospital Accounting Services department.
- ISAM security fees for initial application audit and annual reaudit.
For specific pricing, please visit the E-Commerce Fees page.
- UM System
To begin the process of obtaining e-commerce service, please submit an e-commerce service request form. Once you have submitted your request, a member of the e-commerce team will contact you to discuss your service request and business needs.
All e-commerce sites must comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard. The Division of IT will inspect each MU e-commerce site prior to distribution of a Merchant ID number from the UM System Treasurer's Office.
