There are a number of online giving options out there. Whether you like it or not, there are fees associated with online giving. So it pays to do your homework to find the best fit for your church.
I personally use Tithe.ly for my church’s online giving. I am a smaller church. The majority of my church prefers to give via the offering basket or their own bank’s online banking system. To give via their online system, they make the church a payee and the bank sends a check. However, now that we offer online giving people, we are finding that more and more people are utilizing it.
The nice thing about Tithe.ly is that there are no monthly fees with their lowest price option. You only pay when the service gets used. Their transaction fees are very competitive and were the lowest option when explored this. Tithe.ly allows people to give to multiple accounts (benevolence, general fund, youth, etc.) in one single donation. Their backend giving system tracks every donation. It is very easy to connect to your website. You can install their WordPress Plugin or link to your church’s unique giving page. They also offer mobile app, text and kiosk giving.
I have other friends who use Easy Tithe. They love the multiple pricing options that are available. If you have lots of people giving, the monthly fee can save you lots of transaction fees. They offer a great mobile app, text giving, Facebook integration and a Kiosk option as well. You may want to check them out!
