Frequently Asked Questions
What is CashNet eMarket?
CashNet eMarket is a service which enables official University organizations and auxiliaries of CI to collect revenue online for events, donations, and other special purposes from members of the community.
Why does eMarket exist?
To provide a method by which departments and auxiliaries of California State University (CSU) Channel Islands can collect revenue online for events, donations, and other special purposes from members of the community.
How do I request an online storefront?
Please fill out the CI eMarket Request Form (in MS Word format) and email it to email@example.com. Please provide at least 4 weeks of lead time prior to launch of your payment site; implementation of a new eMarket site typically takes 4-6 weeks from the submission of a completed eMarket Request Form.
What happens after I submit my request form?
After the form is submitted Fiscal Services will build the page in non-production. Once the page is built, a meeting will be scheduled which both the requester and manager approving the site must attend. After the meeting, the department is given the link to the test site to run sample transactions and review the formatting, submitting any changes to Fiscal Services. After the manager has approved the final site, the site is moved into production and available for public use.
What are the available payment types?
Credit Card: MasterCard, Discover and American Express are always accepted by CashNet. Visa is available if the department (instead of the customer) is paying the processing fee. Best practices are to build credit card fees into the rate.
ACH: eChecks can only be used where the user is authenticated via myCI prior to reaching the eMarketplace site
How should the department request that refunds be made from eMarket sites?
When a good or service is purchased via eMarket, the refund should be requested by the primary or secondary contact listed on the CSU Channel Islands eMarket Request form to firstname.lastname@example.org and includes e-mailed approval from the manager listed on the eMarket request, the transaction date, the CashNet receipt number and the amount of the refund.
How will requests for new sites be prioritized?
Requests for new sites will be created on a first come, first serve basis.
