After taking a hard look at the research, we found Kindrid to be the better digital giving solution. Here are the top 3 reasons why.

#1: Reliable (and quick!) deposit times

A lot goes into planning for ministry, and when deposit times are inconsistent or slow, it can add unnecessary stress. Our average turnaround time for credit/debit deposits to your church's bank account is 2-3 business days and 4-5 business days for ACH transactions.

#2: A complete and secure set up process

As a Level 1 PCI compliant provider, we adhere to the highest set of security standards for the card payment industry. While some online giving providers require very little upfront information and let you start accepting gifts in seconds, we know that fast isn't always the best (or safest) when dealing with sensitive payment information.

At Kindrid, some churches start accepting gifts the same day they join, but it generally takes 2-3 business days to go live. Even though you can begin accepting gifts instantly with Tithe.ly, know that those gifts will not be deposited into your bank account until you provide the standard information required by third-party payment companies, and your data is reviewed and approved. Our process is set up to ensure all data is accurate and secure and gifts land in your ChMS where they should from day 1.

#3: Thoughtfully planned updates and new developments

We stay at the forefront of technology, but that doesn't mean we push updates just for kicks. We only make them when they enhance the churches' experience and improve our features. Some of our latest enhancements include a donor help link on giving pages to provide givers step-by-step video tutorials on how to give via text, mobile, and online, partial refunds, and more.
