SEC SDA churches team up with MobiCash to take mobile donations

THE South of England Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SEC SDA) has leveraged MobiCash, a mobile payments service, to roll out mobile donations to its congregation of 223 churches.

MobiCash has enabled SEC SDA churches in the UK to receive donations in a variety of ways to fit their requirements: by using QR codes, online or from within the MobiCash app. SEC SDA has chosen to primarily use QR code donations by displaying QR codes on printed materials in their churches and, more recently due to COVID-19 restrictions, by displaying them online during live services. By scanning these QR codes, churchgoers can complete their donation in just a few clicks from the comfort of their homes.

For SEC SDA, a key advantage of using MobiCash is that individual churches can collect donations remotely during their services while keeping pastors and parishioners safe as they don’t have any of the risks associated with handling cash. The payments service also gives SEC SDA the ability to collect Gift Aid, which adds 25% to the overall value of each donation.

MobiCash has been developed by Compass Plus, an international provider of payments technology with over 30 years of experience in the payments industry, and has been fully integrated with RSM 2000 Ltd, a UK payment service provider for SMEs and the charity sector.

Candy Layson, SEC Treasurer said:

“We have started using MobiCash before the pandemic broke out. We find the team behind it to be very effective and friendly in trying to adjust the set-up according to our needs. We have found it even more useful in the current situation where church gatherings are prohibited. It allows remote donations to be made by our members at their own convenience.”

Nigel Walters, Managing Director of RSM 2000 said:

“We are really pleased that the South of England Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church has made this decision. MobiCash adds a convenient and safe way to make payments to charities in a variety of situations that sits nicely alongside our other services such as text donation, direct debit and other card payment methods.”

Steven Marsland, Business Development Director, MobiCash at Compass Plus said:

“We are extremely proud to be working alongside RSM 2000 to enable charities to continue their work, especially in these uncertain times. Our combined expertise can equip them with an adaptive mobile payments service that ticks all the boxes when it comes to collecting charitable donations.”
