You're having a local aid worker come to speak at your church about her work in Haiti. You know at the end of her talk, there's likely to be a congregational interest in providing her with some financial aid, so you plan to hold a special offering before she leaves. In the past, you've used the usual giving mechanism to collect for these types of offerings, but this time you'd like to keep it separate and make sure she gets the money as soon as possible, since she's leaving for Haiti in a couple days.
How collecting money works
#1 You create a Collect Page
Create your own custom Collect Page.
- Choose color themes
- Upload images
- Customize everything
Then share with family and friends through Facebook, Twitter, and email.
#2 An online payment is made
Friends, family, and anyone else can now make an online payment to your new Collect Page. At checkout you can even ask custom questions like "Why am I the coolest person ever?".
All major credit cards can be accepted.
#3 Stripe processes the payment
To accept payments online you must use our vetted Payment Processor. Our payment processor, Stripe, sets you up with an account automagically when you sign up for PayIt2. After you connect a bank account to Stripe, everything else is taken care of for you.
It only takes 2-3 business days to transfer your money
#4 Money is in your bank account
Now that you have the funds, it's time to use them. While organizing, use the Manage List to see who has paid and who hasn’t. Here you can also manage refunds, contact payers, and view payment information. This gives you all the information you need to give you peace of mind and make sure everything goes smoothly.
