Aplos Adds Online Donations


Cloud-based nonprofit software developer Aplos Software LLC has added the ability for nonprofits and churches to accept one-time and recurring donations online to its Aplos Donor Management solution.

The online donation platform includes a custom donation form that users can brand and link to a donation button on their Web site, or on their e-mails and in social media.

“Donors that set up a recurring donation online are more likely to continue giving, so including this option in every fundraising campaign can mean a significant boost in giving and stability for a nonprofit,” said CPA and Aplos co-founder Tim Goetz, in a statement. “Nonprofits can set up their account, customize their donation form and share it with their donors in less than five minutes.”

Goetz noted that in a recent survey, an “overwhelming majority” of Aplos’ nonprofit accounting software users said they needed an online donation platform with competitive transaction rates. “Their donors expect convenient and secure platforms to donate online and these nonprofits weren’t happy with the options in the marketplace, so we listened and built it for them,” he said.

Credit card processing fees for Aplos Donor Managemet will be 2.2 percent plus 30 cents for recognized 501(c)(3) organizations for the first $25,000 in donations, and 2.7 percent plus 30 cents for all donations above that amount. Rates for organizations that are not recognized as 501(c)(3) will be 2.9 percent plus 30 cents per transaction for the first $25,000, and 3.4 percent plus 30 cents above that amount.
