One of our newest features is the ability to accept online contributions. FlockBase allows donors to contribute through credit cards, debit cards, and eChecks!
Your donors will be able to schedule recurring contributions so that they’ll never miss out even if they can’t make it to church that week. Additionally, they can choose how they’d like for their contributions to be allocated (e.g. General Use, Missions, Repairing the Piano, etc).
Here’s why you should offer Online Giving:
FlockBase negotiated a partnership with Forte Payment Systems to offer integrated online giving at low merchant rates. See the schedule below. At FlockBase software, we pledge to never “mark-up” your merchant fees. We have established a permanent policy that we will never get in between God’s people and God’s money. Because of this policy, we believe that the merchant rates you see below are lower than most, if not all, of our competitors.
