The University's online shop can be used to take payments for almost anything, and is an efficient alternative to manual methods such as cash, cheques and invoices. Once an item is set up customers can make payment using a credit / debit card or PayPal and you are notified of sales via email. Funds are posted to your departmental accounts within 24 hours without any further intervention, and sales data exported on a routine or ad hoc basis.
Although there aren't any real limits on what we can take online payments for the most obvious examples are where you are taking low value or routine manual payments as the restrictive processing costs can be eliminated and there is no charge for using the online shop.
