Facebook Donate: Facebook allows you to add a donate button to church’s Facebook page. Facebook covers 100% of all fees. There is not an option to allow recurring gifts. There are also limits to the ways donors can give electronically.
Local banks: Local banks, especially in smaller communities, are often willing to help church members give electronically. Local banks are great for recurring gifts, but the bank will lean on the church to be the gatekeeper.
