How to Sign Up

February 25th 2016 Online Giving

Online Giving is an industry leading giving platform designed for Christian churches and ministries. To get started with Online Giving you'll need to first sign-up for a monthly software package. To get started please visit our pricing sign-up page and select the monthly package that works best for your church or ministry. Plans start as low as $15 /mo and increase based on features and donation volume. Churches with larger donation volume will want to start with at least the $30 monthly package to take advantage of lower processing rates and ChMS direct integration. 

We've love to chat more about your digital giving needs/requirements. For assistance picking a plan or to simply chat about Online Giving please give us a call (615) 406-4000

What Happens After Sign-Up (Account Provisioning)

Upon submitting a sign-up request Online Giving will confirm your order and send a notification to our support staff for account review and provisioning. We'll promptly review the order to ensure the correct plan was selected and to verify the church/ministry. At the same time, our IT staff starts working on provisioning your new giving website based on your church website logo, color scheme, campuses and funds/sub-funds. Unlike some other giving platforms, Online Giving provisions a giving website that is dedicated entirely to your church/ministry.

Account provisioning for the giving website is always completed within 24/48 business hours of sign-up (Monday - Friday). Once your new giving website is ready we'll send out a welcome email with detailed instructions on how to access your new giving website and control panel. For $15 plans we'll also include instructions for setting up your bank information for accepting donations and deposits. For $30+ plans an account manager will give you a call to start a merchant account application for accepting card and electronic check (ACH) donations. 

Online Giving offers a pay-as-you-go net deposit merchant account plan for $15 sign-ups which is ideal for small ministries looking for instant (same day) access to accepting donations. Churches expecting digital giving volume over $5,000 typically want to sign-up for a $30+ plan which gives them access to a full merchant account with a custom rate quote. Full merchant accounts are preferred by larger churches as they offer lower merchant processing rates and end-of-month billing for easier accounting.
