lds.org donation / tithing payment

Postby josephjoseph » Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:38 am

Has anyone else had issues with members paying tithing via lds.org / donation and having it submit to the bank as a direct debit (re-curring automatic payment). I'm in New Zealand. The option to have tithing submitted as a one-off payment doesn't appear. The donation is setup as a automatic recurring payment at the bank who then charge additional setup and ongoing service fees for each transaction. I understood that this payment method was to be setup as a one-off allowing members to exercise their faith and individual accountability in keeping the principle and allowing for efficient record keeping...

I've not heard of it, but I don't think we get that many from New Zealand. I'd ask the ward clerk to inquire with the church and show them what's happening. In the US, you have to log in and authorize each transaction.

That was my understanding too. I spoke with Global support pacific and they had escalated it through to finance. We've apparently had issues with the initial set-up and how it would work with banks here. Still waiting on their reply.

Please use the feedback link or button on one of the donation pages to report specific details about the problems you are seeing. Guessing that English may not be your native language, it may be better to describe the problems in your native language and have the Church support folks do the translating.

Yeah, I'm having issues, also. My bank account apparently couldn't be used and the donation was reversed. I have been informed that I can no longer use that bank account for financial transactions related to tithing. Called up the bank and apparently there's no problem on their end. Trying to contact the church now...that is a feat in itself. I'm located in Australia, incidentally. Any ideas as to why, would be appreciated :P

You must be in a country where online donations are set up (not all countries are currently set up). If you are, your best resource would be your local ward or branch clerk.
For me (USA) I log in to churchofjesuschrist.org and then select "Donations" from the list when I click on my name.
In the Donations page, there is a "Settings" link on the left side - click that link and scroll down to add your bank information in the "Donation Accounts" section.
