Using Our New Payment ‘App’

We expect to open our wallet or grab our pen and checkbook when we make a donation, pay our pledge, or arrange to pay for something else at church. Now, there are also more convenient new ways in which we can make a payment to Third Church using a smartphone or home computer.

 

  • GivePlus Mobile payment App for Apple or Android.
  •  

    • Accepts credit/debit cards or payments direct from your checking/savings account.
    • Fee: 2.45% for credit or debit cards, or 0.5% for direct payments from checking or savings.
    • Available to download to your mobile device. Just look for “GivePlus Church” by Vanco in your Apple or Android app store.
  • Give Now with your browser
  •  

    • Full-featured web page where you can manage your online payments.
    • Accepts credit/debit cards or payments direct from your checking/savings account.
    • Fee: 2.45% for credit or debit cards, or 0.5% for direct payments from checking or savings.

    The mobile app and web page both offer a “fee offset” option--you can choose this to cover the fee charged to Third by the card issuer if you want the church to receive the full amount of your intended payment.

     

    Example: to donate $50 towards the Pastor’s Emergency Fund, you can enter a $50 donation and select the “fee offset” option to automatically add $1.23 to your donation. Third Church will receive $50 and you will be credited with a charitable donation of $51.23.

     

  • With your own bank or credit union's Bill Pay Service
  •  

    • Most banks or credit unions now offer free electronic checks, generally at no extra charge to you or the church.  ► more

 



Electronic Bill Pay

Electronic Checks (also called Electronic Bill Pay) through your own bank or credit union are also a great way to make a payment to the church:

 

  • Most banks or credit unions now offer free electronic checks, generally at no extra charge to you or the church.
  •  

    • Check-free convenience for recurring or one-time payments.
    • Fee: generally none. Saves money for you and for the church!
    • If you have questions about setting up electronic checks, just contact the church Business Office.
