The effectiveness of online donations cannot be denied. President Obama received over $690 million in online donations during the 2012 presidential campaign. With the ability to quickly and safely donate small amounts online, politicians running for office have discovered this tool. Now, your Church and/or ministries can harness this powerful force too.
It is very simple to add online giving to your website to collect money online. Website users can easily select their own amount and donate in seconds using their credit card. Your ministry must still pay the credit card processing fees for handling the transaction; however, after much research I have found that Paypal offers the cheapest rates/fees and is the most flexible and easiest platform our there. Paypal is known globally and has the highest security measures available for online transactions. Your congregation can rest assured when making a donation to a specific cause, processing their recurring tithes or to pay for registration fees for special events.
Most churches are concerned about online transaction fees and losing that small portion of income; however, if you consider you may not have received the donation at all it is but a small price to pay! So don’t miss out on increasing your revenue by limiting your options.
