After taking a hard look at the research, we found Kindrid to be the better digital giving solution. Here are the top 3 reasons why.

#1: Customizations that unleash generosity

When accepting digital gifts, creating a sense of familiarity helps build trust, and branding is a big part of that. People are 7x more likely to give on a branded donation page versus a generic page, and they give 25% more! By branding the giving experience with your church's logo and colors, and customizing thank you emails and engagement material, you'll ignite giving. PayPal simply doesn't offer a branded giving experience that builds trust and leaves givers with a sense of familiarity and security.

#2: User-friendly features and an intuitive interface

With an intuitive interface, navigation simply makes sense. Church admin can easily find the reports, tools, and integrations they need to manage online gifts effectively. With our robust reporting features, churches can better identify giving trends and forecast for the future. Givers also love the user-friendly features like responsive donation pages. With PayPal, navigation gets muddled, and many admins end up searching for quick fixes and workarounds to meet the needs of the church (if they can find them).

#3: A simple set up to access multiple ways to give

PayPal is a broad platform built for a variety of businesses, organizations, and individuals. This makes it challenging to set-up online giving for the Church. With Kindrid, there are fewer steps to take and our customer support is fast to respond when you need help. Plus, we offer multiple ways to give that aren't offered with PayPal (or are very difficult to set up), like recurring giving and text-to-give.
