Our church uses Stripe to process our contributions. When you contribute through the encrypted connection, only Stripe will have access to the information required to process your contribution.
Contributions can be made using any checking account or major credit/debit card. Credit and debit card transactions are processed the fastest, but 1.9% of the contribution is deducted to cover transaction costs. Transactions from a checking account (ACH) are the most cost effective ($.30), though they also require account verification for first-time givers to maintain security.
After you have established a payment method and made a contribution, you will have access to a streamlined process, details about prior contributions, and giving statements.
