Offering Kiosk

Kiosk

There is a lot of talk, blogs, articles that have been written lately for church leaders to implement electronic tithing options for their congregation. The way of the world is moving away from cash and more towards credit, debit, and automatic bank withdrawals.

There is nothing wrong with implementing a giving program that allows or even encourages the use of alternatives to cash and check; but is the Offering Kiosk or The Giving Kiosk right for your church? This is a question we get from a lot of churches when they start the Continue to Give program. Here are some of the benefits to having an offering kiosk.

People come to church without cash and checks:

Let's face it people cannot give if you don't give them an option to donate with their credit and debit cards. You are losing givers that have a great way to pay for their donations and tithes- their credit and debit cards. Don't give them an excuse not to give because they don't carry cash and checks; give them an option that works with the way they pay for items now.

All generations use the giving kiosk:

You may feel that only a younger generation would want to use an offering kiosk but that is just a myth. All generations find the offering kiosk easy to use because it's a simple 2 step process of how much to give and how to pay for the donation. It's that simple! They don't need to go home, remember to setup their online giving, and try and navigate your website in their spare time. It's a swipe of a card away from making that donation happen.

On offering kiosk increases giving:

Having an offering kiosk has proven to increase giving among your members by as much as 40%. This can happen to your church for a couple reasons. First the kiosk is always setup in the church and is reminding people to give without the pastor having to give a sermon on it. Secondly, it's very convenient for anyone to walk up to and donate just like an ATM. And Lastly the kiosk allows designated giving, an automatic bank withdrawal option, and recurring donations.

The Offering Kiosk or Giving Kiosk is free for your church to download and setup on your IPad. You can download the free app today here!
