Certain states and localities have campaign finance regulations that require ActBlue to operate through merchant accounts in order to legally operate in these jurisdictions. On our Pricing Page, you can find a list of states and localities that have such requirements.
**ActBlue operates through merchant accounts ONLY in jurisdictions that legally require them**
A merchant account is an electronic payment processor that will enable your committee to accept credit and debit card transactions online. Our platform is designed to work exclusively with merchant accounts provided by Vantiv Worldpay, our payment processing partner. Funds you raise through ActBlue will be processed through your Vantiv Worldpay merchant account and deposited directly into your bank account.
