- Takes about 1 week for church to get equipment, which sounds fast to me!
- If a church gets a free kiosk and the online giving service (which most do, the trainer told us), that is TWO separate merchant accounts for the Agent!
- 'reseller' is the pw to view the DEMO.
Good marketing flyers in interface.
ALL YOU DO IS INTRODUCE PASTOR/CHURCH TO FREE KIOSK and invite him to a call -- FILL OUT THE KIOSK DEMO FORM from Documents, interface. (Sound familiar? ...nothing ever changes in what we do -- and aren't we glad!!)
WHY SHOULD YOUR CHURCH USE OUR KIOSK/APP/ONLINE SERVICES? Some stats may help:
tools are being used instead. (Americans transact 350+ non-cash payments per capita each year.)
Check usage has been more than cut in half since 2000, and it continues to plummet. Meanwhile, debit cards, credit cards, e-payments, and mobile payments continue to gain steam. This is certainly true among the younger generations (61% of people under the age of 24 say that they never write checks), but Millennials aren’t the only ones making the switch…

3 out of 5 donors age 66 and older make contributions via the webDonors 66 and older are now just as likely to make their contributions to charity online as younger donors, according to a U.S. Dunham+Company/Campbell Rinker study.
The percentage of donors 66 and older giving online has increased from 29 percent in 2010, the first year of this study, to 59 percent in 2014. Donors 65 and younger give online at a 60 percent rate – no statistical difference given the study’s margin of error.
After cost – the most common objection to online giving is some version of, “we’re a congregation of old people and none of them know how to use computers.” While demographics certainly play a role in giving trends, these statistics reveal that the old stereotype of the technologically-befuddled Senior doesn’t hold water anymore. Smart devices, social media, electronic payments, and email have pervaded every corner of our society. Including the generation that can still remember when color TV was the hottest thing around. Provide the “Golden Oldies” in your congregation with an opportunity to give online, and you may be surprised by how many respond.Bible app during the sermon.

If your church’s website is optimized for laptops and desktops but not mobile devices, we’re only a few short years away from that website being unusable for over half of your visitors. Don’t wait!
