The Give A Little donation app has been specially developed in collaboration with Parish Buying to ensure that church goers and visitors can make donations to your church with total ease. The basic version is free of charge.
What you need to get started with the Give A Little app:
- A SumUp card reader and account
- An Android tablet or phone with a data connection
- A stand for the tablet
*If you are setting up contactless payments in your church for the first time click here to register with SumUp and to order a card reader.
Gift Aid version available on the Premium version
To give donors the option to Gift Aid their donations you will need to upgrade to the Premium subscription, the cost of the Premium version is £9 per month. As well as Gift Aid, the Premium version will also allow you to add an image and change the colours of your display.
How the Gift Aid option works
Once a donation has been made the donor will be shown a Gift Aid screen where they will be asked to enter their name, first line of address and postcode. When you wish to process your Gift Aid donations you will need to download the report which includes all the details you will need to send to HMRC to claim your Gift Aid. All of this is explained in detail in the instructions you receive via email when you apply for the app.
Already taking contactless payments?
If your church has already started using contactless payments with SumUp then all you will need to do is download the app onto your tablet. If you want to purchase a second card-reader you can do that here.
