NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Eric Choi had a problem. As CEO of Century Club, the exclusive Manhattan Beach dinner club, his clientele prided themselves on giving back to the community. The organization regularly held fundraising events, but Choi was looking for something more: a platform that would integrate charitable donations into the everyday operations of the Century Club, thereby allowing the business to maximize its impact.

Enter Cause Payments – a unique, morally conscious, merchant services provider. Cause Payments automatically contributes a portion of every credit card transaction processed to a charity or school of the merchant’s choice. Immediately, Choi knew he had found the strategic partner he was looking for.

Within a year, Century Club has been able to contribute thousands of dollars to the non-profit organization Vision of Hope without costing them a penny more. “Thanks to our partnership with Cause Payments,” stated Choi, “we have been able to help Vision of Hope support eight inner-city schools in the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas. That’s incredibly important to our customers. Cause Payments has allowed us to put our values into action, every day.”

To achieve these impressive results, Century Club has leveraged the full range of payment methods offered by Cause Payments, including the CauseDirect payment platform that offers fast, efficient and low-cost processing; the Cause Mobile Wallet app that lets consumers use their smartphones like a credit or debit card; and the CausePay technology that allows customers to make instant payments with the scan of a QR code.

Cause Payments CEO Brad Barton said, “We’re thrilled to partner with Century Club to raise funds for Vision of Hope. Cause Payments products seamlessly integrate into your business to start automatically giving back, without any impact on your bottom line. We’re committed to making charitable giving as effortless as possible for our customers.”
