Tithely is an online giving solution for Churches. They offer giving through their app – but also provide a ‘Give’ button to be inserted into your website. This plugin makes it easy for you to insert your Tithely ‘Give’ button into your WordPress Site – using either a Sidebar Widget or a Shortcode.
Requires SSL Certificate
Whilst Tithely processes payments securely – we recommend you only use the give button on a page that is protected with SSL encryption. It’s pretty cheap to add and usually costs around $30-50 a year depending on the service. Talk to your hosting provider to find out more details.
