It seems that an easy solution is to set up electronic funds transfer using the local bank. The church obtains the account information from the donor, along with the amount to be debited each month, and relays the information to the bank. The bank sets up transfers from a donor’s account into your bank account on a scheduled basis.
This process sounds simple, but caution – handling a donor’s sensitive account information can cause problems for your church. The fact is that there are many flaws with using EFT bank transfers beside the confidentiality issue. Below are some things to consider when comparing bank transfers with an online giving program offered from your web site.
