How Should I Give?
- ACH it costs us 49 cents in processing fees (Total Giving: $99.51)
- Debit charges up to 1.5% of your total transaction, plus 39 cents (Total Giving: $98.11)
- Credit, depending on the card, charges 2.5-3.5% of your total transaction, plus 39 cents (Total Giving: $96.11)
Now, that may not seem a lot, but multiplied by the number of those who give each and every week, that amounts to hundreds and thousands of dollars saved through ACH. Giving via check during Sunday attendance is the best way, but giving online is the most consistent and most efficient way to give!
How come Pushpay only accepts Visa and Mastercard?
A. Transaction costs to the church via AMEX or Discover can run upwards of 3-4% while Visa and MC typically charge anywhere between 2-3%. Debit is the best way to go when it comes to cards. ACH (or checking) is available sometime by September 2014.
Why does Pushpay require a phone number?
A. The Pushpay app and account are not only associated with your email, but also with your phone number for security purposes and notifications. You can only create one account per mobile phone number, but you can associate your account with multiple payment options such as ACH, Credit, or Debit cards. However, if you need two or more accounts for accounting purposes, at this time you will need additional mobile numbers to establish accounts.
CAN I GIVE WITHOUT A SMARTPHONE?
You can always give online with or without a smartphone. In your browser go to anccbellevue.org/give and click on GIVE ONLINE and follow the same simple steps you would on your phone!
CAN I SET UP RECURRING PAYMENTS?
From the Pushpay app, click MORE or the MENU button (typically three dots or lines) and choose RECURRING PAYMENTS, then follow the instructions on the screen to setup repeating gifts.
