Modernize Church Donation and Tithing Processes

Church parishioners have adapted to technology-driven payment methods. People rely upon electronic and credit/debit payments these days. One common problem many churches often find themselves facing is overcoming situations where parishioners arrive for services, only to have forgotten to bring their checkbook or cash. While subtle reminders sometimes work, they are not always the most effective way to ensure your church is receiving the maximum amount of donations and tithes. As a result, churches need to find new technology-driven solutions to make it easy for their parishioners to give, like installing an offering kiosk in the church.

What Is an Offering Kiosk?

An offering kiosk is a tablet device secured to a kiosk stand. The tablet is supplied by the church and configured with software specific for your church. A credit and debit card reader can be connected to the device, so parishioners may swipe their card instead of manually entering their payment information. The donation and tithing process is simple and easy for anyone use.

How Do Parishioners Make Donations and Tithes?

Parishioners walk up to the kiosk where they see your church’s donation page and click on the “Donate Now” button. On the next screen, they select the amount of donation, select which area of the church they want their money to go for, such as tithes, other special church sponsored programs, or missionary work, select how often they want to give, select the payment date, enter in a personalized message, decide on privacy preferences, enter in the billing information or swipe the card through the card reader, and click the “Donate Now” button to finalize the secure transaction. After the transaction is submitted the kiosk is reset for the next person to use.

Other Technology Driven Solutions for Church Donations

In addition to offering kiosks, churches have the option to use a special QR code for people to scan with their smartphones. The QR code can be listed on the church’s kiosk’s home page to give parishioners an alternative method to give. Another way to use your church’s QR code is to publish it in your church bulletin with an appropriate inspirational message. People simply scan the code and are taken to your church’s secure donation page.

On the main page, visitors have the option to share the church’s mobile page on Facebook, Twitter, or through email, as well as to like the page on Facebook. The donation and tithing process is very similar to using the kiosk stand, except people have the option to sign in using their email or Facebook profile, or make an anonymous donation. If someone logs in with their Facebook profile, they can invite friends to also make donations. By utilizing a QR code, a church is able to take advantage of modern technologies and social media to encourage people to make regular donations.
