  • 2. Choose your Payment Method

    After entering your donation information, you can choose a payment method you've saved in the past or to add a new payment method for your donation.


    If you are not using a saved payment method for your donation, you can add a new bank account (US only) or add a debit/credit card

  • 2a. Choose your Payment Method-

    Give with Bank Account (US Only)

    1. US donors can verify and save their bank account to use when donating. When you give with a bank account, the processing fees are lower than when you give with a credit card. However, the funds will take longer to get to your church (3-5 business days).


    2. When giving with a bank account for the first time, you will have to verify that you own the bank account. Your account will be saved to your donor profile so that you won't have to verify account ownership every time you give.


    3. If you choose to add a new bank account, you'll need to first verify your account information.

    Choose Instant or Manual verification.



    Instant verification will allow you to donate that same day. Accounts with most major banks can be verified instantly.


    Manual verification uses micro-deposits to verify your account and might take a few days to complete. You'll need to use manual verification if you can't find your bank when you search for it using the instant verification process.


    With micro-deposit verification, the bank deposits a couple of small amounts into your account. Depending on the type of micro-deposit verification, you might need to manually verify your account in the same day you initiate the verification. You will need log in to verify each of the amounts deposited to your bank to complete the verification. Once your bank account is verified, you can donate using that payment method.

  • 2b. Choose your Payment Method-

    Give with Debit/Credit Card

    You can give using most major debit/credit cards. Enter your card number, expiration date, CVC code, and zip code.


    If you are giving using Church Center web, you'll have the option to save your card to your donor profile. In Church Center app, your card information will be automatically saved.


    Optionally choose to cover the processing fee, and then select Give now.
