Since transactions go through, how soon does the money go into the church's account after you take out the transaction fee?

Money from Credit Card/Check Card transactions are deposited into the church's account within 2-3 business days. Money from ACH (e-check) transactions take a few days to be deposited into the church's account. The reason for the delay in ACH is for verification that the funds are there, whereas Credit Cards/Check Cards have real-time validation of availability of funds

Are there any maintenance fees for changes like adding a fund category, or a new report?

There is no charge for changing fund categories. Reports are a little different. There are several reports that you will have access to, but since we build these reports ourselves it would be unrealistic for us to say yes you can have any report you can dream up and it’s free. We will definitely provide some great reports and are very open to reports and statistic requests. We will do what we can to fill these requests.

What happens if there are insufficient funds in a payment?

Credit Cards/Check Cards do real time validation to ensure availability of funds. ACH does not. If an ACH request is processed and there is NSF, there is a 3.00 charge. This is charged by the ACH merchant account provider, and we do not have any control over this rate.

We know that we will have to enter the EFT giving into our software package like we would do today if we got a check. Is it possible to download the giving into a transferable file for our new church software package?

Yes, you will be able to download it in a CSV file, which most software packages can handle. As for the specifics of importing it into your software, you would have to ask your vendor about that.

Why recurring giving?

Most Americans (approx. 80%) live on monthly budgets and their effectiveness as stewards is based on monthly faithfulness. As distracting as this culture is, electronic faithfulness is welcome by the giver and mission leaders. We see a 95% retention rate with monthly eGivers over 5 years, which could not work without costs are minimal and our impact to planning and mission unquestionably valuable.

Could you help me present this to my board/leadership?

We would be happy to do a conference call, a webinar or a board meeting/speaker phone short presentation. We would be glad to do whatever we can to help bring early unity and focus for the mission’s sake. These tools can have a very positive effect on your organization’s funding, and early team buy-in means more rapid growth in eGiving.
