    Does the church pay this per transaction fee or does the user pay it with each transaction? How are they alerted to this additional fee? And where does the money donated go? What are the security risks and how are deposits verified?

    Hello Rector!

    The church covers the transaction fee. We advise churches to add text to the top of the online giving page letting donors know about the fees and asking them to consider giving a small percentage more than their intended amount to help cover those fees.Here is a link that explains more of our online giving fees: Online Giving Fees

    For churches and ministries that choose to embed Online Giving into their website we recommend SSL Certification on the website as well. The church website acts as another layer in which malicious users can try to intercept personal data and the encrypted connection means that only the correct recipient is able to read the data.

    At Breeze, we take every step we're able to in an effort to keep your data safe! Help us help you! Check with your domain name registrar to see if they have digital certification available for purchase or go through a reliable SSL certificate authority to secure your church website today.

    For more detailed information on how we keep your data safe, check out our Security webpage.

    So is the total amount of online giving fees added to the $50 monthly fee each month?

    Hey leicj7613! 

    No it is not. When someone donates online, the church will see the fee percentage come out in the net deposit. Breeze allows users to view a report showing the details of your online transactions, including fees. 

    Happy Breezing!

    Does the online giving integrate with Breeze, so that when a donation is made it shows up as a transaction?

    Can members giving online donations see their history?

    Hey @kevinelton - Online Giving does integrate with Breeze!  On the first gift you may have to Associate Contributions With Profiles but once you've done that, it will integrate beautifully with Breeze.

    Your donors will be able to see their online giving in their account as well. 

    When viewing their profile they'll see a "giving" button on the left where they can see their history of contributions.

    Can online giving be customized so that someone giving a gift can specify a particular project/fund that the gift is given?  Can online gifts also be designated in honor of or in memory of someone?

    I have run into a few issues in which donors are select a button other than "one time". Is there a way to disable the options that allow multiple occurrences of giving?

    Thanks for reaching out to the Breeze Community! 

    Great question, here. Unfortunately, there is no way to disable this functionality within Breeze. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. 

    Let us know if there's anything else that we can do for you!

    I have a group of volunteers coming in to help enter data, will I be able to talk to a live agent to help guide us through the process? Can  text2give, online and CashApp giving be enter into breeze without incurring a fee? How do I import the members contribution from a spreadsheet into breeze? How do I delete information that has been keyed in incorrectly? Does Breeze Integrate with the banking information?

    Great questions! Due to the nature of them, this is more appropriate for Support so we'll be taking the conversation over there!
