Introducing Apple and Google Pay - making giving even easier
Following our all-new Donations Module earlier this year, we're now rolling out new ways to pay and make it even better!
How do our fees compare?
Our donation fees are already one of the lowest around and are the total amount (there is not a separate iKnow platform fee). With the option for donors to cover fees and over 56% of people choosing to cover fees, it meant that the average fee was just 0.97% on the donations that went through iKnow Church from May - July 2022! For a church receiving £50,000 of donations over the course of the year, this means a church could save over £600 compared to a provider that charged 2% or over £1,300 compared to the 3.6% a popular provider charges*.
Accept Recurring Donations that can increase automatically!
Donors can give a one off donation or choose to give every week, month or quarter. What’s more they can set their donations to increase automatically by a fixed amount or percentage such as £5 every 3 months or 4% every year. iKnow Church does all the sums and still gives the user the chance to cover any transaction fees.
Ticket fees that are a lot more competitive than….
Fees on ticket sales are just 2.5% + 40p saving the church a lot of money compared to the majority of providers. For a £10 ticket, iKnow Church would save the church at least 50p in fees per ticket compared to a provider that charged 6.5% + 49p per ticket. Whereas a lot of providers release funds after the event has taken place, iKnow Church releases funds on the Monday, 7 days after the ticket has been purchased, helping with cash flow for the event.
iKnow Church integrates with HMRC so that your Gift Aid claims can be submitted with just a few clicks.
Upload Bank Statements
Upload your banks statements so off-line giving from other sources such as BACS and Standing Orders can be recorded in iKnow.
* examples based on 500 donations of £100 and based on iKnow average rate of 0.97% should 56% of people be covering the transaction fees.
