Why did OAP choose Democracy Engine and not Act Blue or another payment processor?
Democracy Engine is the only payment processor to provide seamless integration with Nation Builder, our web host. Using Act Blue or another processor would require us to set up a whole different page on their website and track donations there instead of everything being in one place on our Nation Builder website. Also, using other payment processors would require what is called a "merchant account" at our bank, which is an expensive option for a small group like OAP. We want to use the money we raise to accomplish our goals, not pay fees at a bank.
