Embed Payment Form

Aura by iATS Payments is a secure online donation form that is customized using a step-by-step donation form-builder located in the iATS customer portal. With Aura you can quickly and easily create multiple online donation forms, allowing your donors to make one-time, recurring and ACH (direct debit) payments.

Essentially, Aura is a web widget that talks to the iATS web server to process transactions.

Build your own donation forms and embed them to your website, all within minutes! Updating them is quick and easy as you are in complete control!

Aura Template is a pre-configured online payment form that is ready to be embedded into your website. Choose from a variety of templates that already contain key fields, such as names, addresses, and payment information.

Aura Template is great for capturing sensitive data while still maintaining the look and feel of your overall website.

Parameters can be passed to Aura Template via the back end, allowing you to only show a few fields, but sending a full set of data to iATS.

The major differences between Aura and Aura Template are:


Aura Aura Template
Customer has access to modify Only iATS can produce and change
Customer creates as many as required iATS creates a few templates – identified with a Template ID
Each Aura is customer-specific and is only available for that customer’s use – i.e. dependant on the client code Aura Template is generic and can be reused – i.e. is independent of client code
Aura usually captures all information required for the donation Aura Template is used in conjunction with other pages / shopping carts and only sensitive information is captured

Our AuraLink web services are meant to serve as a supplement to Aura, our easy to use online setup wizard that lets you quickly create and integrate secure donation forms on your website.

Because they are directly connected with your iATS payment account, Aura forms give you the ability to process both single and recurring transactions using either credit cards or direct debit right from your website without having to send donors away to a third-party payment processor. (More details on Aura - including video walk-through of the Aura wizard - are available here.)

Our AURALink Web services complement Aura by giving you advanced customization control of the code beyond the features available from the Aura form set-up wizard, while still being able to utilize the post back URL to get transaction results and captured fields back to your database.
