Payment Method Differences
Bank account giving (ACH) helps us save on processing fees. ACH transfers are slower taking 3-5 business days to complete before you’ll see it on your bank statement. Debit card giving is not the same as bank account giving although it is tied to your bank. The debit card processing fee is higher than ACH, but still lower than a credit card. Credit card giving is a much faster transfer than bank account giving but does incur the highest processing fees.
Text Giving Error Codes
Occasionally, you may experience an error using our text giving system. Below you’ll find a list of common errors, a description of what they mean, and solutions on how to fix them.
- Duplicate transaction REFID: The system flagged your transaction as a duplicate in an effort to avoid mistakes. Most commonly seen when attempting to give the same dollar amount to different funds within a short period of time (usually less than 24 hours).
- DECLINED DECLINE CHECK DAY LOC #CHKS=3: This is an ACH transaction limit. You’ll get this error when you attempt to give more than 3 times via ACH within a short period of time (usually less than 24 hours). Keep this in mind when giving to multiple funds in succession. To fix, simply wait 24 hours and try again.
- DECLINE: This system declined your payment method. Usually happens when a credit or debit card has expired. To fix, text update to our church giving number and follow the instructions to update your payment method.
