Is it safe to give online?
Yes, online transactions of this sort are conducted millions of times a day. There is no check to be lost or stolen, and you may be protected by your credit card company or bank as well.
Are there any charges for giving online?
Yes. Online donations using Debit / Credit cards are accepted (Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card). There is a $.25 transaction fee charged to the church account for each online donation processed. In addition, when using a Debit / Credit card, the credit card network (“merchant services”) will assess a 2.75% processing fee to the church for each transaction. Donors are given the opportunity to help cover the cost of this additional fee during the donation process. Note: due to significantly higher processing fees, we are not offering AMEX transactions at this time.
How will my donations be used?
Donations made online will be used to further the ministry of Fellowship Baptist Church. To designate funds to certain accounts, simply make those designations on the donation page for the desired field.
Will I receive confirmation of my donation?
You will receive a receipt via email from PayPal confirming your contribution. In addition, you will see your donation on your monthly account statement with an identifier of PAYPAL *FELLOWSHIP BAPTIST CHURCH.
No. Please look for the section of the PayPal page that says, “Don’t have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available).” Then click on the CONTINUE link.
Will my online offering be recorded on my annual Contribution Receipt?
