Here is a little more detail about on-line giving. Every on-line financial transaction comes with a transaction fee. We work with a service called Vanco, who is the leading processor for churches, schools, and other non-profits.
Giving by On-line Check (ACH). These transactions take place directly between your bank account and ours (requiring you to enter your checking/routing information). Vanco processes that transaction and charges us 0.9% of the total gift.
Giving by Debit Card. These transactions add a third party to the mix – the card service itself (Visa, Mastercard, etc.). They also charge a fee (much larger than Vanco’s). Right now, the total fee for giving via debit card is ~2.7%.
As a church, we are always happy to pay those fees on your behalf. We are extremely grateful for everyone's financial partnership with us, whatever method they use.
