Contactless giving

Even before Covid, the use of cash was on the decline. Former predictions that in ten years time only ten percent of transactions will be with notes and coins, seem quite optimistic now! Providing the option to donate contactlessly will enable your church to;

  • Capture donations that may not otherwise have been made.
  • Engage with a wider range of visitors, especially those who are not regular churchgoers
  • Offer greater choice for generous givers
  • Future proof for the inevitable further decline of cash
  • Claim additional gift aid through the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme

GiveALittle and Contactless

The CollecTin More and Payaz Giving Station both work in conjunction with an Android app called GiveALittle. GiveALittle is a point of donation software developed by Parish Buying. This app was designed to allow users to receive contactless (and online) donations with low set up costs and transaction charges. If you have a SumUp Air card reader you can also use this with the GiveALittle app on your mobile phone or tablet (Android) to take donations. For more information about GiveALittle, please click on the button below.
