THE CURE for the standard, ancient church giving platforms

2019-08-18

We also switched to their ChMS Church Management System and the power of the platform is really exciting!

Pros

People are used to great payment experiences online, so ours needed to match that experience.

Cons

Also - our finance admin wasn't happy about having to enter checks by hand (scanners do not work with Tithe.ly), but the improved interface we hope will cause more people to move away from physical checks.

Great set of tools for the church, but TONS of core functionality missing

2021-01-02

I like the Tithely vision: a whole suite of products under one roof. But given that they've bought different products and merged them rather than developing from scratch, there's little continuity between the products. They don't fix bugs and dont demonstrate a culture that even cares about the bugs. I feel as though those doing the development planning have NEVER worked in a church before, because of the amount of core functionality missing. That said, this company has the potential to be the leader in church tech products if they'd just change their culture, quit launching half-baked products, and fix what's wrong with current products. They love God and want to serve the church. Hopefully they can fix what ails them so they can serve even more churches!

Pros

Really can't beat the price, when you consider that this provides Church Management, Text Messaging, Website, Giving, Media, and a Mobile App

Cons

-Automated reports really aren't reports, just an email reminder to run a report -Due to bugs, Giving transactions dont auto-populate in ChMS -No conditional rules for forms -No report data in emails -Still get notifications of reports have no data, which is a waste of time, since you have to log in to see the report before you know there's no data -Members can't see their year to data giving total in Member area -no calculations of report fields -Almost NO integrations with other platforms -No form data sent to admins when forms are completed -Almost NO customization of the GUI -social media integration has been broken since we came on board, but no sense of urgency to fix For the mobile app -cant check in on the app -mobile app requires use of Tithely Giving, which isnt disclosed until after you build your app -no geolocations -can't configure home tiles For Giving: -Current integration with ChMS is buggy -No notification when someone gives -Fees cant be a designated fund Also -New products launched barebones, like Messaging (no groups or keywords) -Media can't be edited -No enhancements to Websites in almost a year -Will not allow concerns to be posted to Tithely FB group; blocked everytime -Bugs galore with no sense of urgency to fix

Great team and great product

2016-09-18

When looking for a well rounded giving solution that was affordable for small to mid sized churches I came across tithe.ly.

Pros

I like the txt to give, I love that our people can cover the processing fees, I love the powerful reporting on the back end and the seemless integration for our church management system and church app

Cons

You cannot cover processing fees through txt to give.

Great experience for managers and users alike!

2017-11-07

Very easy integration for online giving for our church with minimal headache for administrators.

Pros

The easy access login with 4 digit code is a great security feature as well.

Cons

The bank setup took a bit of troubleshooting (I think because it was a Canadian bank), but support was helpful. Customer support is good, but you'll always get voicemail and then they call you back which can be a bit frustrating.

Church giving management software

2018-10-16

Very good online training.

Pros

Comprehensive reporting and a church management system which covers all of the needs of the ministry.

Cons

The only thing I would recommend is that the company provide equipment such as the credit card square along with this outstanding church software. Our church will soon be debuting this software so we can be in the next generation of technology!

Excellent Product and Easy to Use

2020-10-09

Very good. It delivered exactly what it said it would do.

Pros

The fact that it easily implemented with our WordPress website was a huge benefit and the major reason we decided to go with the company.

Cons

It took a bit to get the information to download into our accounting software and church member management software so that we could easily print reports as needed.

Great for churches of all size

2018-04-19

Ease of use, great UI

Pros

We enjoyed having this service. They fill in many gaps for churches. They are always working to try to help in anyway they can. Everything looks great.

Cons

While we liked everything about the service it made sense for us to leave and go to a company that provided us a church management system as well.

Great Value and Wonderful Customer Service

2017-03-17

We chose Tithe.ly as our online giving platform because of pricing and the text-to-give feature. It has been a great choice for us so far!

Pros

Customer service, pricing

Cons

Not full service, we may switch to a full-service option eventually (like Planning Center Giving)

Good, but not sure why it's church specific

2019-11-11

I won't be using tithe.ly on an ongoing basis, but I had an easy time setting it up for a church that seems quite happy with its implementation!

Pros

Tithe.ly was well designed and easy to use to organize and accelerate online giving.

Cons

It doesn't seem to do anything that any other donation management software would also be capable of doing.

Tithe.ly is Good But not Great

2019-12-05

Tithe.ly syncs with our church management software which is a big bonus.

Pros

The App works well as does the Text to Give feature. Set up was quick and fairly easy.

Cons

The colors and art features are limited. Tech support is not consistent. Sometimes we get an almost immediate response and other times it may take an hour or two to resolve questions.

Tithe.ly is a decent solution for church giving

2019-10-18

Pros

They offer mobile apps, text to give, and embed features.

Cons

Although they do provide a convenient platform for giving, if you are not utilizing their mobile platform or "text to give"feature, then it is limited in overall functionality and customizability.

LOVE TITHE.LY!!!

2016-12-21

This is the most simple, elegant solution to challenges facing our churches and its members...in our modern day accepting mobile and electronic payments!

Pros

Ease of use, simple to get started and tools available to engage your constituents. Low simple price point with cover my fees option that enables the church to increase overall funds raised -- seeing 25% improvement within 6-months of going live with Tithe.ly.

Cons

Increased engagement and mobile alerting customization capabilities....I understand this is being launched by end-of-year 2016.

Giving made easy for churches

2016-09-16

During a pilot project, we integrated Tithe.ly within our mobile app platform for our clients.

Pros

One super cool feature is where the donor can cover the processing fees.

Cons

As a vendor, however, I would love to be able to integrate directly with their platform through an API. This seems to be in the works so not a major issue.

I do recommend that you compare other giving solutions with Tithe.ly, but I think your conclusion is going to be the same like us(and our clients). Tithe.ly software is focused on churches who want to grow without being locked into a particular way of doing things. If you want to continue to work with the tools you love but add a powerful giving solution, then Tithe.ly is it.

Online giving made easy

2019-05-17

Really my only complaint is that it doesn't default to Bank account payments as I feel more people would choose that option if it were the default.

Pros

Recurring giving option. Donors have the option to cover the fees.

Cons

Would prefer if it would default to Bank account payments rather than Credit Card payments, since the fees are lower, although I am happy that in the most recent update they made the options more noticeable.

Considering Mobile Giving? Go With Tithe.ly

2019-05-18

Pros

You can easily export giving reports on the administrator side.

Cons

You have to search for the church you're giving to and if you're not careful, you can accidentally give to another church that might have a very similar church name.

We switched to Tithely from Moonclerk/Stripe to enhance our church giving.

2017-05-11

We saw a service improvement and a drastic cost reduction to providing online giving.

Pros

Tithely has great support, a clean interface, and lower fees than the competition.

Cons

The only con is that I would love the ability to automatically import gifts into SimpleChurchCRM.

This software gives you tons of great features with very competitive fees! Highly recommend!

2019-02-13

If you are shopping for a sharp, easy to use, customizable giving platform, with great rates and useful features, look no more.

Pros

They give donors an option to click a box where they will cover the fees for the donation.

Cons

I came to tithe.ly after using 2 other giving platform softwares, and this is, hands down, the best I have used.

Giving with Tithe.ly

2016-09-13

Tithe.ly is the first product that allows local churches big or small to adopt digital giving without hardware or even an internet connection! Designed by pastors for churches, it covers everything a local church needs.

Pros

On top of no monthly fee or setup charge, the multiple giving funds, recurring giving, option for donor to include cost of transactions, and the multiple ways to give from website to kiosk to text to mobile giving - all deposited directly into the church bank account.

Cons

Waiting for bank -to-bank option in Canada.
