Church giving management software

2018-10-16

Very good online training. Answers all questions and takes time to assure customers are satisfied with product.

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.

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.

Rock solid giving platform

2018-02-22

Our church body uses it every week to donate. Tithe.ly allows us to offer secure, convenient giving options for our members.

Pros

Integration with our church management system (Elvanto)!

Cons

The admin dashboard is a little tough navigate (learning curve).

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 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. The speed to which we were able to role out txt to give and an online option took us just a few days. We had the early adopters jump in and after just 8 weeks have seen over 50% of our giving switch over to online a recurring which has been a game changer. The team at tithe.ly have been there if we needed them, but honesty, it's intuitive and straight forward!

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 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 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.

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.

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)

Online giving made easy

2019-05-17

It would be nice to have the option to not allow credit card payments at all, as it would both save on fees and discourage people from getting into debt paying their tithes.

Pros

Easy to use. Can customize giving categories and activate/inactivate as needed (great for special offerings).

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.

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

We do this now through a batch import which works well, but automatic integration would be a nice feature for the future.

Tithe.ly is a decent solution for church giving

2019-10-18

Pros

Tithe.ly provides a convenient platform for streamlining online (or mobile) church giving.

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.

Best Church Online Giving Tool I've Used {And I've Used a Lot of Them}

2016-12-05

I help churches build websites and many of them are looking for a good looking, simple solution, for their online giving. The days of the poor user experience of being ushered to a merchant web page and back to your web page are gone with Tithe.ly. Tithe.ly is great because I've not seen all the features they offer packed into any other solution that doesn't require a monthly fee. One of the features that make them unique is that they allow the giver to cover the transaction fee, which in my experience, the giver does over 90% of the time. I've helped implement Tithe.ly not only on my own churches site but on many other sites as well. It is my go-to online giving tool...now if they would only make a more generic platform that wasn't so specific to churches to use on non-profit websites.

Pros

Full feature set...no monthly payment required, offers both credit card & ACH, user accounts, and allows the giver to cover the transaction fee.

Cons

It is very specifically geared towards churches. The platform could easily be adapted to other giving scenarios outside of the church if the name were different.

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. You can't actually view someone's giving profile. Little strange.

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

Super powerful dashboard and great support.

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.

So Easy!

2019-10-15

Overall, this software program is very promising and can center and cater to giving and tithing for our church members and others who may want to sponsor something or come to an event.

Pros

As a busy working mom and ministry leader volunteer, my mind is often wandering and catching up at odd times where when I think about giving towards something specific I can have that option at my fingertips.

Cons

What I like least about this software is also offering a sign up/registration with an event within the giving portion as well.

Makes Giving a Breeze

2018-11-28

Using Tithe.ly has made making and budgeting my giving to my church a much simpler task.

Pros

Having a set payment weekly, monthly or set to whatever your preference is also allows me better control of my budget.

Cons

The added cost for ACH and card transactions are not ideal, but are obviously understandable as they are part of the process.
