Primary Contact Explanation


When a Breeze account is first established, by default, the very first username & password that is created at signup is established as the “Primary Contact”. This is an individual, acting on behalf of the "Organization" (ie. the Church), having full authority to enter into a binding contract on behalf of the Organization, that registers with the Service. 

What does this mean?

We recommend the primary contact being someone you trust. This user will be the primary point of contact between your church and Breeze. Billing Issue alerts, Online Giving Issues, and important updates about your account will be sent to the email address associated with this user.

  • Do you have an option to change the "giving exception transactions" from going to the primary contact to another designated person. We have a financial function that should be separate from the primary contact. Also, with ACH being an over night transaction, why would Breeze not have the funds the next day? I work with and use ACH daily, it is just an overnight action.

    Thanks for reaching out to us! In reference to your first question, Email notifications concerning failed payments can only be sent to the Primary User at this time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

    In reference to your second question, ACH payments are processed through our primary merchant (Stripe). Unfortunately, we have no control over how long it takes them to process those payments. If you are looking for more information here, there's some great information found on their website!

    If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to let us know!
