Money from Credit Card/Check Card transactions are deposited into the church's account within 2-3 business days. Money from ACH (e-check) transactions take a few days to be deposited into the church's account. The reason for the delay in ACH is for verification that the funds are there, whereas Credit Cards/Check Cards have real-time validation of availability of funds.
Credit Cards/Check Cards do real time validation to ensure availability of funds. ACH does not. If an ACH request is processed and there is NSF, there is a 3.00 charge. This is charged by the ACH merchant account provider, and we do not have any control over this rate.
Yes, you will be able to download it in a CSV file, which most software packages can handle. As for the specifics of importing it into your software, you would have to ask your vendor about that.
Absolutely! This is a great way to get started with your easyTithe account. Testing not only allows you to get familiar with easyTithe, but also helps build confidence with the product among your team.
Approximately 80% of Americans live on a monthly budget and their effectiveness as stewards is largely based on a monthly commitment to giving. As distracting as our culture can be, automatic recurring giving is welcomed by givers and mission leaders alike. Over a 5-year period, we have seen a 95% retention rate with monthly recurring donors. This kind of retention rate would not be possible without automatic recurring gifts. While easyTithe's costs are minimal, it can lead to enormous growth through recurring giving!
We would be happy to do a conference call, a webinar or a board meeting/speaker phone short presentation. We would be glad to do whatever we can to help bring early unity and focus for the mission’s sake. These tools can have a very positive effect on your organization’s funding, and early team buy-in means more rapid growth in easyTithe. The two key ministry contacts between easyTithe.com and your organization are your admin and leader/advancement people.

In additional to real-time reporting, easyTithe offers email notifications for donations. We provide a daily batch summary of your account's activity, and your donors will receive an email receipt for any gift processed.
