How to enable Online Giving?

Once you complete the process of creating your Stripe account, you can go back to the Online Giving Screen.

Contribution Statements

Risks of Online Giving: As a church, you are liable to pay any chargebacks due to fraudulent charges. These chargebacks can range anywhere from $10-$20 each time they are done.The best way to combat chargebacks due to fraudulent charges is to proactively refund donations ASAP. It is significantly cheaper to eat the cost of a transaction than it is to have a chargeback.
