How to make the most of online giving comparisons

We've done a lot of the research for you, but here are 5 helpful tips when comparing different giving solutions on your own.

1. Get your church family involved

Enlist volunteers, givers, church admins, leaders, and elders in the decision-making process. You'll want to involve people of all ages because every generation uses online giving tools.


2. Write down a list of features that you don't want to be without

Don't compromise on features when choosing a digital giving platform. Write down the features that you want, and spend time researching those you're not familiar with to see if they'd be helpful.

3. Calculate costs accordingly

Look at pricing carefully because there are a lot of variables to factor in. Even if a platform comes at a low price, it could be costing you if it isn't built for the Church. Integrations and other time-saving features also save money (and reduce frustration).

Look for specific features designed to decrease costs. Kindrid lets givers choose the option of covering fees by adding them to their gift and accepts ACH (Bank Giving), which have lower processing fees.


4. Speak with the giving provider

Reach out and speak with an actual person that represents the platform. Ask questions and get an insider's look at the user experience. At the very least, take a demo to gain a better understanding of the control panel and features.

5. Join the platform risk-free

Want to really know if a giving platform is right for you? Join risk-free! With no contracts, you're not locked in, so you can experience the platform for yourself.

Editor's Note: It's important to us that all information is 100% accurate when comparing different giving platforms. If anything is misrepresented, don't hesitate to REACH OUT so we can promptly correct it.
