Getting started with GiveALittle

Our friends at Parish Buying have developed a donation app especially for churches called GiveALittle. It works by partnering with a payment processor to accept donations on your behalf and then deposit them into your church’s bank account. Once you have registered with GiveALittle, you will be able to connect a payment processor account. There are two payment processor options available:

  • SumUp: a SumUp account can facilitate both contactless and online donations. (NB: you can also use your SumUp account separately with the SumUp app for taking payments).
  • Stripe: a Stripe Express account can facilitate online donations at a lower cost than SumUp. It can accept Apple Pay and Google Pay for online donations and also has a high donations threshold (up to £1m) in a single transaction.
