TERRE HAUTE, Ind., March 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- BGW 21st Century Solutions announced the launch of a mobile wallet service that allows cell phone users to make donations of any amount at any time via a simple text message. Today, more and more payments are made electronically and church members are less and less likely to carry cash or checks. Up to now, there was no affordable or practical way to collect tithes from those who attend church without a checkbook. Luckily, almost everyone carries a cell phone!
"We developed MoPin in order to allow mobile phone users to easily and securely tie their mobile number to payment information so that with a simple text message they can make a tithe or donation to their church," said Daniel Cook, founder of Building God's Way Services, a company that has been serving the church market for over 20 years and provides SMS devotional subscriptions at www.greatertexting.com.
Just like with cash, donations can be made at church. As an added benefit, because all that's needed to make a donation is a phone, donations can be made at any time, from anywhere! Donors can even set up text message auto-payments and reminders, so when they can't make it to church one Sunday, they can still donate, it's as easy as replying to a text message!
All transactions are processed securely and every donation has to be confirmed by the donor by providing their unique 4 digit PIN code. Just like with a debit card.
Because MoPin is a text message service, there is no hardware or software installation required and it works on any cell phone, not just smartphones. Getting set up to collect donations from any cell phone owner is easy and takes less than 24 hours. Best of all, unlike mobile giving services offered through the cell phone carriers, donated funds are available in days rather than months.
