As many of you know we recently launched a new “app” for the ministry. As a part of that process it was important for us to make wise decisions regarding who we would partner with to make it happen. We chose a company called Subsplash and have been very impressed with them as we continue to improve and expand these new tools.
As many of you already know PayPal has recently announced that it has joined with ADL in order to root out groups that it considers undesirable. If you have read their announcement then you know that I am being generous in my description. Having watched the transformation of the ADL for decades I have seen what kind of groups they consider to be “undesirable” these days. While I don’t believe that used to be the case, I can clearly see how it is now and that it is a matter of time before they put this organization in their crosshairs.
After a number of discussions within Alpha and Omega I have decided to move our credit and debit card processing away from PayPal and over to Subsplash. Their technology is top notch and their support teams are too. Moreover, the app already has a donation platform built into it so giving can now be done through that method as well. In addition to the concern over PayPal’s partnerships, Subsplash also has lower processing fees so your support of this Ministry will go even further. Of course they also offer the web based tool that can be found on our donations page and all of these processes meet or exceed current industry standards of security and privacy.
If you are a current repeating credit or debit card donor to Alpha and Omega we will be reaching out to you soon to assist you in moving your donations over to SubSplash. Since no credit card data is ever stored or collected on our website or in our offices we will need your assistance to accomplish this. If you already use our preferred method of donating via Online Banking you don’t need to do anything.
We so appreciate your support of this work.
