GivingTools is designed to accommodate a variety of processors. Our 1.0 customers are all BluePay customers. With our 2.0 platform, we opened the doors to Base Commerce, Stripe, and PayPay business standard customers as well. With all accounts, you get 0% ACH processing as well as competitive card rates from BluePay. You can also plug in an account from a supported processor if you wish. And PayPal remains an option, even if you have ACH and cards processing set up by other services. So, you can cherry-pick the services that are right for you. The extra cost to link in a non-BluePay account? Zero.
We do this stuff to maximize your online giving success. Is it a good choice for your nonprofit? Well, most of our customers stick with BluePay to keep everything under one roof, and because the rates are very good. But feel free to consider these added features, and let us know if you want to ponder what might be right for you.
A major new version of GivingTools was released December 2017. GivingTools 2.0 offers enhanced functionality…and you can migrate for no added cost. So, the $14.95 you pay to BluePay currently covers your account, whether you are in 1.0 or 2.0.
We’ve pre-migrated all 1.0 accounts, so you can log in, check things out, clean things up, and modify your account to take advantage of 2.0’s awesome features.
Once you are happy with how your giving page, appeals, and forms look, simply share your new url. You would also need to re-embed any embedded appeals with giving forms from the 2.0 system. That’s it. For security reasons, you will also want to have your 1.0 traffic redirected to your 2.0 system. By default, we will redirect everything to your giving page. But If you’d like something more special (e.g. a specific giving form), let us know!
Don’t want to switch just yet? Just don’t share your 2.0 URL.
