eCommerce is the official service for accepting electronic payments at NYU. It is designed to allow the acceptance of credit cards, or online gift donations, conference registration, and specific fees related to a University event, or other products and services sold at NYU.
Payment Gateway is the transaction-based system that accepts eCommerce transactions for both one-time and recurring payments. Payment Gateway only provides electronic payment processing. Additional functionality, such as event enrollment or inventory sales, is not specifically provided by this service.
By adhering to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), NYU strictly prohibits merchants from storing, processing, or transmitting Credit Card data. PCI DSS Compliance is certified annually. Merchant managers must complete a PCI Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and all staff involved in card processing must complete the Security Awareness Education (SAE). Both PCI components must be competed annually.
