Allow multiple online payment gateways in one WA account
(Re-posted and edited from post below)
We have 2 organizations, one that manages the membership and the other our tax-deductible contributions. As such we have 2 different bank accounts and therefore need 2 different payment gateways. We're signed up with authorize.net, however there's only one global setting in WA for online payments. If it were possible to choose a payment method, for instance one for membership and another for donations, that solve the problem of having to set up 2 WA accounts.
For now I've set up 2 accounts and am working with the widgets. This is a good work-around, however the members will need to fill out 2 different profiles and they can't view all the information in their accounts at once.
Update: The donation form widget sort of works from one WA account to another. However, the event widget works perfectly! I set up our sponsorships as events and pasted the code into the main site. It looks great.

Please, must I have to use two different email addresses to signup with two WA. I had one account and I don't know how sign up with payment gateway.
How do I sign up with three different accounts please. 🙏

US tax law "requires" a separation for 501c(6) funds from 501c(3) funds. Our donations can not go into our main bank account. We want to add a second bank account to keep our tax deductible donations separate from our main account.
is it possible to use two separate accounts for payments...one for membership fees and another for events

I have several WA accounts for multiple clients. They need to have 2 separate accounts - one for memberships and the other for events. Monies are kept separate for a variety of reasons

We need to be able have different types of payments go to different accounts. Please fix. Allow us to set up multiple bank accounts for donations/events/membership.

If you have multiple bank accounts, multiple currencies tied to each account would also be desired. Multiple currency support in general is missing right now.

You need to have the ability to connect at least two bank accounts to one website that will collect DATA.
You also need to get your refund capabilities online NOW
If this isn't addressed soon, we will have to find another service. Too many of our members, sponsors, vendors, and supporters depend on paypal. We are using WA payments as our primary method, but if we cannot do both, you are forcing us to must move to another platform.
Add multiple payment methods to the site...meaning allow users the ability to pay via multiple methods
Many of our customers prefer to use PayPal, but a majority choose to use credit cards. Since Wild Apricot does not have the capacity to have multiple payment plans, we have to go with AffiniPay. We are losing those customers who use PayPal. Please work on expanding your system to include multiple payment platforms.

PLEASE can you implement the possibility for transferring payments to different bank accounts - even through the same payment provider? We have set up 2 accounts with STRIPE - but WA can only make payments to one of them! We have the same legal reasons as other users below, for splitting payments types across accounts. THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS!

Is there any updates on this feature. Of all the things I like about WA, this is the one issue causing us the most pain.
Are we able to have TWO options for the members to pay, instead of JUST PayPal. Example, I had either SagePay OR PayPal as options for the members. It seems as far as I'm aware that we can only configure one?

Eric, I merged your requests with existing one. This is not in the works as of now and I have no expectations set so far. As soon as we start working on it, we will comment here and your and others will be automatically notified via email.
We need to be able to send different types of payments to different bank accounts. For example, we need to send membership fees to one account, and class/camp activity fees to another. I understand this is in the works. When can we expect this capability?

We would really like flexibility in choosing multiple online payment platforms, so we can accept both PayPal (for most people), and another system like Stripe (for those who bitterly resist PayPal). In the maker/tech sector, there's are LOT of strong feelings about this. Allowing two or more platforms would make that all go away...
Camille, you can use this article for reference to work with widgets: https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Adding+Wild+Apricot+functionality+to+other+websites?from=5oblB
However, it requires opening 2 paid WA accounts just for this. If one of your payment providers is PayPal, it will be simpler to add "Pay by PayPal" button on some pages and use PayPal as secondary payment provider, and setup another one in WA itself.

PLEASE, please, please add the ability to accept payments through multiple gateways! We, too, have two bank accounts, each for specific purposes. We need to be able to direct funds collected through the site to only one or the other of our accounts.
Until this feature is added, can you please share the widget work around referenced in the original post?

+1 more. We represent a half dozen WA association accounts that are also related to Political Action Committees. There are strict rules on co-mingling donations with none PAC activities. Today, we can't use WA for these PAC donations because we can only associate one payment gateway per WA account. Please help.
