Payments & Giving FAQ

How does it work?

We work with Stripe to accept payments. Payments & Giving is very easy to use, and you won't even notice that we are using a third-party provider. You get the security and reliability without having to use multiple systems.

With ChurchDesk you can manage everything from within ChurchDesk. We believe it doesn't get any better.

This means that our payment provider Stripe needs additional documentation. ChurchDesk will handle this on the behalf of the customers.

How does ChurchDesk transfer donation and payment funds?

Payments & Giving periods are calculated 10 days before the last day of the month. The total amount within this period will be transferred to the church's account on the last banking day of the month.

Bank transferrals can vary by 1-2 days depending on the church's bank.
