Why a Flat Fee?
Banks charge ATM fees. Airlines charge baggage fees. Like any conscientious consumer, you probably don’t like paying either but you know what the fees are going to be and budget for them when choosing a bank or airline. But what about the fees being imposed on churches by some eGiving providers – fees that appear low until you have a successful, thriving eGiving program?
Now that every envelope, bulletin, software and publishing company serving the faith community is offering eGiving, trying to do an apples-to-apples cost comparison between a percentage-based or per-user program and a flat-fee approach would be a full time job.
Any fee structure that takes a percentage of the gross receipts or has a user-based fee structure will prove to be very expensive for your church in a short period of time as more members join the program.
