Tithe.ly Software


 

Tithe.ly Church Giving is a cloud-based funds collection application designed for churches of all sizes. It offers a mobile app that allows church members to donate funds in a variety of ways and provides reports, alerts and donation tracking. iOS and Android apps are available.

Users can configure the Tithe.ly mobile application for their church using logos, graphics and brand colors. Mobile giving options include fund transfer using saved cards, ACH payments, a text-to-give feature and an option that allows members to cover transaction fees.

Pros

It’s so easy use, so simple, and so convenient. I love that it is a solid Christian app that I can fully trust and highly recommend to others. My church uses it and we thoroughly enjoy it!

Cons

I honestly don’t really have any cons except that the little fee that comes with every use of it goes up the higher you give, but I guess that’s kind of unavoidable.

I like the ability it gives me to be able to do my giving online. It has a simple and easy to use interface

Cons

The phone app has very little substance. It feels more like a webpage link than a fully functioning app. It would be nice if it was more robust.

Pros

It is nice and simple! All you need to do is enter the amount, and it comes right off your card. You can connect it to your bank account, but I haven't tried that.

Cons

I do not like that I can't pay my complete tithe in one visit. I have not found a way to pay my general fund, building fund, and faith promise all in one payment.

Convenient way to stay on top of your giving!

Pros

If you are like me, you forget to bring your checkbook to church, and then when a special offering comes around, you feel terrible you can't give! This app is a lifesaver both for unexpected offerings and for consistency when you may be out of town.

Cons

The app transfers you to the internet for various functions, and sometimes my internet is slow and can be frustrating...

Pros

Tithe.ly was very easy to set up, and people have found it very easy to use as well. Offers a convenient option for giving.

Cons

I wish there were a way to track whether a payment has been reported. I try to print reports at the same time every week, but some payments are borderline to the report time so I have to be really careful not to either miss reporting a payment or to double-report a payment.

The ability to set up automatic weekly tithing, the multiple options of texting or using the app, etc.

There is a fee for every offering you give, I do like that they have the option there for you so you can cover the additional cost of you using the app rather than giving in cash or check so that the ministry you give to does not get the additional cost

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

Pros

Ease of use. User friendly. 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!

My overall experience has been good with this website I hope it continues to be secure and safe site for people to use.

Pros

I love this software. I use it often to pay my tithe to our church. I use it if I forgot cash or checkbook. It is very secure. They give you the option to donate a little bit more cover the cost of the processing fee so your church gets the full tithe

Cons

I can’t think of anything negative at this point, it is a great website to go to and it is very handy.

very fast, safe, convenient and reliable way to give before you miss the money.

Pros

It is anonymous if you want it to be, it is accessible anywhere you get cell service, you can program your banking or card info for repeat giving, you can give extra to defray minimal processing fee, works with all major credit cards and paypal. Excellent for impulsive spenders who want to pay "first fruits" before Sunday rolls around, so you don't get tempted to spend your tithe. ;-)

Cons

I believe the church or ministry must be registered with tithe.ly to receive donations. That probably excludes many organizations at this point. Tech will gain traction over time.
Also, no insurance against that stink=eye look from usher Sunday morning when he hands you the collection plate and you already gave online. ;-))

More efficient method of online giving that consistently works.

Pros

Easy to use. Easy to implement. Great support when needed. We quickly had a good adoption rate. It totally integrates with our CMS so it allows for a supper efficient way to record giving.

Cons

There is a small learning curve with the initial setup, but if you actually take the time to follow directions it is an easy setup.

Even though it is not "fluid" it is still simple enough to use. It also makes finding nearby charities an easy process

Cons

The fact that the mobile app redirects you to an external browser is really frustrating. The entire point of a native application is so the actions can all be executed from within the app...otherwise just create a web-app and add a button on the homescreen.

Thank you for the review, Stacey!! Really appreciate it as we read and use feedback to make continuous improvements. :)

One note... in your "cons" you mentioned being redirected to the browser to give. That is a restriction that the app stores put in place. You can read about it in section 3.2.2 of the Apple policy - Unacceptable usage. The caveat is that if the donor wants to use ApplePay and the charity is pre-approved by Apple. Hope that helps you understand why we have to do it the way we do.

It does what it is supposed to do. It works and integrates seamlessly.

Pros

BACKGROUND

Our synod had just completed a study in online giving. One of the key piece of feedback was support for our leaders without having to go through a phone zone for support only to be told you'll have to look through the support documents on the website. Our results were mixed.

THE DECISION TO MAKE THE MOVE TO TITHE.LY

As we looked into Tithe.ly as a provider of eGiving solutions, from day one, I was continually impressed with their responsiveness and the level of their customer service we received. If I have a question, I can call ONE PERSON directly. No phone tress. No... you'll have to read our support forum for that answer. Just great, personalized customer service from one representative. They work to get me the best answer. Tithe.ly also has very competitive rates. In other words, we get to keep more of the money that is given to us. Having the option for text giving is helpful in situations when there are emergencies, disasters, or events.

We decided to add a personalized app. It is intuitive and the process of building the app was informative and quick. I can't thank the folks building the app enough.

Pros: Great Customer Service, Price is fair, and in my conversations with their people, I got the real feeling like this is a company that really wants to be the best they can be.

Cons

I have not experienced many negative things with Tithe.ly. Just take your time and ask a question so you fully understand what is being offered and what you can do, if you move forward with a personalized app. Most of the confusion I had around the was on me.

Pros

The program allows users to donate to whatever church they want and define the specific target of the donations (tithe, youth group missions trip, church adult ministry, etc.). It also enables users to schedule payments. For example, if someone wants to give a specific amount every week, the app makes it extremely easy to do so.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is a processing fee. However, this is expected because the service needs to make a profit. However, the app allows users to choose if they want to pay the processing fee or let the church do it. Also, it is impossible to complete the full transaction directly through the app. It directs you to a browser.
