When it comes to processing online payments, our commitment to you is twofold: we will only partner with providers that meet our high standards of reliability and extensibility; and we will strive to keep your fees as low as possible.

Starting today, the credit and debit card processing rate for Giving and Registrations will be reduced to 2.15% + $0.30 for US* customers.

Compared to the prior rate of 2.3% + $0.30, this new rate will save our customers at least $1.6 million collectively over the next 12 months.

Both you and your members want to make sure that donations are used where they’re needed most — for the good of your church, your local community, and the world. That starts with making sure those donations are processed as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

At Planning Center, we make $0 and 0% from transaction fees in Giving and Registrations. While we expect to process nearly 2 billion dollars for our customers over the next year, we’ll make $0 on those transactions — just like last year, and the year before, and the year before that.

We know that every dollar counts when your organization is funded by the generosity of others. Thank you for choosing to partner with us when managing donations and registrations. It’s because of you that we’ve grown to a scale where we can offer these kinds of rates, and we’re grateful.
