Launching a church giving kiosk is not a quick process. Here are the 5 steps for a successful giving kiosk launch:
❶ Share the Vision
Let your key leaders know your vision for a church giving kiosk. It is important that you start to explain the why behind the giving kiosk before any equipment is purchased or the service is setup.
❷ Get the Hardware
Gather all relevant equipment for the giving kiosk. The hardware you need will depend on if you are setting up a tabletop or standing kiosk.
❸ Notify All Church Goers
About 2 to 3 weeks before the planned launch of the giving kiosk reveal the giving option to the whole church. This should be done before the giving kiosk appears in the lobby.
❹ Setup the Giving Kiosk Options
Setup the web-based giving kiosk software to use the payment gateway. To increase the success of your giving kiosk set the options to send a thank you email to everyone that gives using the kiosk.
❺ Announce the Giving Kiosk
Once the giving kiosk is in place talk about it just before you receive the offering. Not just the first time the kiosk is available, but every service the offering is collected. It may take a service or two before church members and visitors start to use the giving kiosk.
