SEEC Compliance Guide

We have created a step-by-step guide to assist with getting your Anedot donation page up to compliance standards with the SEEC.

Please connect with the SEEC directly to receive your campaign compliance requirements. Anedot is unable to provide compliance advice.

Once you have completed your donation page setup, follow up with the SEEC directly to receive approval.

Customize Account Settings

Log in to your AnedotID and click on your account name listed under Fundraising Accounts. This will bring you to your account dashboard. Next, select the Settings tab from the main menu bar.

Under the Settings tab, access the Brand Elements tab. Edit your Account URL Slug. Click Save before leaving this page.

Next, access the Finance Presets tab from the menu on the left. Here, you can disable payment methods and set your Per Transaction Limit. Click 'Save before exiting.

Create SEEC Compliant Page

Access the Action Pages tab from the main menu bar within your account dashboard.

Next, select New Page: Donation.

Hover over your new page in the table index. Click Actions: Edit to access the Action Page Builder.

Edit Disclaimer

First, edit the Campaign Disclaimer within the Editor tab of the Builder. Select Custom Footer. Click your cursor within the Footer field to edit. Click Save before exiting the text editor.

Edit Address Label

To add the SEEC required fields, access the Form tab within the Builder.

The donor First and Last Name, along with Email, are already set as required. You will not need to add or edit these fields manually.

Address is set as a required field. To comply with SEEC requirements, edit the Address field by clicking the pencil icon. Under Address Label, Select Residential Address. Click Save before exiting the field editor.

Add Custom Fields

Per SEEC standards, you will not use the Employment field that is available in the list of preset form fields. The available Employment field will not collect the necessary data that the SEEC requires.

Use the Text field option from the available form field list for questions that require a custom typed response from the donor (Best use case: Employer and Occupation).

Use the Selection List: Drop-down field for your Yes/No or provided response questions.

Use the Requirement field for the 'I confirm that these statements are true:' text. This field is automatically set as required. A checkbox will be made available on the public facing form.

Publish and Share

Click Publish before exiting the Builder to save your work.

To access your Share URL, click the Share button from the upper right corner.

Test Donation + Export

To submit a test donation, access your Share URL from within the Builder.

Next, open your donation link in a new tab within your internet browser.

Select your donation amount and complete all required fields.

You will receive a confirmation message that your donation was successful along with an email receipt. The receipt will come from info@anedot.com. If you do not receive the receipt (it may take a few minutes), add info@anedot.com as a contact to your email account.

Next, access the Finance>Transactions tab from your account dashboard to view and export your donation data.

Click Export in the upper right corner and download the export to your computer. You may then send the export directly to the SEEC.

You may then Void your test donation to prevent processing and fees. Click View next to the test transaction. Within the View Transaction drawer on the right side of the page, there should be an option to void at the bottom.

AVS Response

The website asks for the zip code associated with the credit card being used to make the contribution, but does NOT ask the contributor for the billing address (if different from the residential address provided by the contributor) of the credit card being used to make the contribution. The merchant account processor uses an Address Verification System (“AVS”) to verify the credit card information with the contributor’s bank and the transaction will be completed even if the residential address provided by the contributor does not match the billing address on file with the contributor’s bank for that particular credit card. If the AVS code indicates that there is not an address match, the committee will need to follow up with the contributor to verify, via a written statement, to address the discrepancy between the claimed residential address and the billing address, before qualification can be granted.
