Learn about best practices, Michigan State University standards, and available tools for accepting credit and debit card payments at MSU.


What is happening?

On May 21, CASHNet, MSU’s university-supported application that accepts credit and debit card payments, is moving its services to AWS.

A temporary Train environment and URL have been created for MSU merchants to run tests. The testing period has been extended to May 10.

Your login into CASHNet will remain the same.

What do I need to do?

There will be no impact and no need to take action for most stores. Storefronts or Checkout stores who receive data via notifications from CASHNet after a transaction will need to make changes to their firewalls. A separate communication with specific instructions was to those stores.
