12 New for SWAN  Online credit card and debit card payments made by patrons in Enterprise OPAC will go directly to the SWAN library  No longer held by the SWAN organization  Scheduled at whatever frequency the library sets (daily, monthly, etc.)  Each SWAN library is required to sign up for a credit card merchant account with ProPay  Starting at April go-live, all online Enterprise payments funds made by patrons will go to the patron’s home library

13 Existing Process Patron Pays in OPAC PayPal (SWAN) Credit Card Merchant (SWAN) Bank Account (SWAN) SWAN Finance SWAN Creates Checks for 77 Libraries (4 x Year) Bank Account (Library) Credit Card Merchant (Library) Bank Account (Library) Patron Pays in Library Enterprise Profile Recommended Process ProPay Each Library’s Dedicated Profile Funds arrive on schedule library determines

14 CURRENT ARRANGEMENT PROS  Easy for library (no merchant account)  100% Library participation CURRENT ARRANGEMENT CONS  Library waits for check  Some libraries never cash the check (sad, but true)  Staff time on the quarterly reconciliation of funds received & amounts to be reimbursed  SWAN auditor raised concerns

15 Later in 2015 for SWAN  BLUEcloud Commerce with ProPay will provide libraries the opportunity to integrate card swipes with Symphony  SWAN Board approved $4,800 of the $500,000 migration funds be set aside to purchase 1 ProPay magnetic stripe reader for each of the 77 SWAN libraries for later post- go-live deployment
