Integrations make it possible to use Planning Center Giving alongside other donation platforms, mobile apps, bookkeeping software, or other types of software systems.
Planning Center has an open API that allows any company to build a software integration. If you're a company looking to build an integration with any Giving or any other Planning Center application, start here.
Integrations are typically initiated from inside another system you use. You'll click a button that says something like Connect to Planning Center, and then grant that system access to your Planning Center account.
Once a third-party system has been connected to Giving, donations added by that system will identify themselves as a Payment Source in Giving.
Go to the Payment Sources tab on the Manage page to see your active payment sources.
After an external Payment Source is added (whether manually by you or automatically after connecting a new 3rd party integration), you'll see a new column added to the table of donations throughout Giving. This new column will show you the Payment Source for each donation.
The integrations listed here are third party integrations. That means pricing, functionality, and support are all controlled by the companies that built the integration.
Paperless Transactions offers online payment processing and bank integrations for non-profits. Their Giving integration lets you scan paper checks, match donors to your existing donor database in Giving, add new donors, and deposit your batch of checks to your bank.
Once a donation is deposited, Paperless Transactions will sync all of those donations back to Giving. The Paperless software works on Windows and is compatible with a wide array of check scanner machines.
One time setup fee: $250
Virtual staff training (optional): $100
Monthly fee: $30
Per-check fee: $0.10 + 0.35% per check (volume discounts available)
Pushpay is a full donation platform with a focus on mobile giving. In addition to their mobile app, they offer web-based giving and other tools for churches. Their integration allows you to sync your Pushpay donors with Planning Center People.
About the integration: Pushpay's help article
While Pushpay's integration will sync your Pushpay donor base with your Planning Center People database, it will not sync their donations with Planning Center Giving.
