Online giving is a real thing and helps individuals and businesses alike. Churches have set up online tithing so that they can get donations from more than just the people in the pews. Anyone can ask for donations for anything they need money for and get online notifications as well as notifications to their smartphones, when they get paid.
How Tech Is Making It Easier To Get Paid?
If you want to get paid quicker, get money from donations faster or easier, and use your tech in the process, there are many options. You can do it from your computer, your tablet, or even your smartphone. Here are some of the things you should consider using in order to deal with your money through today’s technology.
Check Your Online Banking
Long gone are the days when you had to drive to the bank to deposit your paycheck. In fact, you don’t even have to rely on direct deposit anymore. With some banking apps, if your bank has one, you can scan in the check you got from work and it will be deposited into your account. It’s kind of like magic.
Not all banks are offering online banking yet, so talk to yours and find out if it’s available or will be. Make sure to ask if they have an online banking app, which can make things even easier when it comes to your income.
Use PayPal And Other Payment Sites
If you work in the virtual world it is pretty likely you’re experienced with online payment options, from PayPal to WePay. There are many online payment sites, and most of your options are determined by the people paying you the money if you’re using it for your means of job payment.
If you’re selling items for a living you’ll likely find that Paypal is the most common option. Paypal also has options for a card reader similar to the Square reader, and they have Paypal.Me now that allows for direct donations from friends and family. Paypal offers a credit debit card for users too, so you don’t always have to transfer your money to the bank before you can spend it in the real world.
Crowdfunding is a great way to make money for anything you need it for and takes very little effort. Make a great campaign, post updates now and then, and share the campaign in as many places as possible. How you get your funds will depend on the site you go with and how much of the donations you get will be dependent on that as well.
Crowdfunding isn’t just a computer thing, most crowdfunding sites also have apps to get paid. With the app, you can set up a campaign, make updates to your campaign, and you can even get notifications the moment someone donates some money to your campaign.
