> Go to Shiloh's e-Giving Site
The service we've selected is LifeWay's recommended solution provided by NCS Solutions, Inc. Feedback from area churches that use the same service has been quite favorable. Because it's an externally hosted solution, participants will deal directly with the safe, secure NCS web site. You won't be providing your bank account details with anyone at Shiloh. Instead, you'll register on the NCS site and select your payment options. You'll also be able to generate reports of your e-giving history on the site.
Unfortunately, such convenience does come with a price, albeit small. While 100% of your offering will go to God's work at Shiloh, the church will also be billed separately at the rate of 0.5% plus $0.50 per transaction. That may not sound like much, but it has the potential to add up. For example, consider the case where a member sets up automatic donations of $100 per week. To process those electronic transactions, the church will be billed $52 over the course of the year. That's a lot of money just to save someone the trouble of writing a check each week. To mitigate these fees, we'll ask online giving participants to add a small amount to their donation. In the example above, if the member added just $1 to their weekly donation, it would pretty much cover all the fees.
We fully realize online giving isn't for everyone. If you give faithfully with check or cash, there's no reason to do anything differently. But if you're accustomed to online banking or don't want to track down your checkbook every Sunday morning, please try out our new e-Giving service. Log in or register using the link below.
