Collect Money Electronically


We've talked before about some churches who use PayPal as a method for people to give to church.  Usually the church sets up the account so the payer will pay the service fee.  Do you know anything about an entity built on from PayPal called Pay It Square?  Organizers of events can notify friends, donors, and potential attendees and set it up for group payments, fundraisers, or events.  It provides the tools to track, organize, and collect payments online. The Organizer may choose to pay the service fees or have the Payers pay the fees. Only the Organizer needs a PayPal account to use the site.

You can check out this service here. I'm wondering if any church group Organizers have used Pay It Square?  I know people don't like to pay service fees but when you think of the cost of gas to drive your car to sign up and pay for something, the service fee may actually be quite inexpensive. Pay It Square is also available as a Facebook App and you can also embed the Collect Money Pages on your church Facebook page. Any youth group leaders using this service?
