Yesterday, we took a look at some of the things to look for when choosing an electronic donation processor. During my research for this article, I came across a newly formed service that checked most of the boxes that I mentioned in my article. So today I would like to take the time to introduce you to SimpleGiver.com, a simple mobile solution that allows your church or ministry to accept electronic donations.
Simple Giver is an easy to use solution. Once you join, all you have to do is upload your logo and your mobile payment site is built for you automatically. Once you create a project or fundraiser, you are ready to begin accepting donations. In just a matter of minutes your church can put a complete electronic payment solution in place and be up and running.
The first thing that caught my attention when researching Simple Giver is their pricing structure. There are no set-up fees, no monthly or annual fees, your ministry pays just 5% of every transaction to process the donation. Since credit card companies will charge you 2 to 3% per transaction to process credit card payments, the Simple Giver fees are extremely reasonable.
