Clover Donations: How to set up Text to Give in under 10 minutes

If your church or nonprofit has a Clover Donations account, and has been wishing you could add a text giving option, wish no more!

You can use the same merchant account you have with your Clover Donations account to process credit card transactions with Txt2Give.

Here's how to get it done in under 10 minutes.

Step 1: Create your Txt2Give Account

You'll first need to create a Txt2Give account. Head over and pick out a plan that makes the most sense for you. You'll get a free trial, and plans start at just $25/month.

Step 2: Connect your Clover Donations merchant account

When you signed up with Clover Donations, you either chose BluePay or Authorize.net to process the credit card transactions for donations. You can use that same account to process transactions for text donations!

Once you've confirmed your Txt2Give account and are logged into the Dashboard, just click Setup -> Gateway -> New Gateway. Then choose either BluePay or Authorize.net from the drop down.

Enter the credentials for your Clover Donations merchant account and click the Create Gateway button.

Your Txt2Give account is now ready!

Step 3: Do a test donation

To make sure you have the proper credentials entered, we recommend doing a small test donation of $1. Just text Give 1 to your new Txt2Give giving number. You can find your giving number in the Dashboard under Setup -> Organization.

And that's it! You're ready to start advertising your new text giving option to your donors. We make that easy though by providing rollout materials when you sign up with Txt2Give :)

So what are you waiting for? Get your free trial of Txt2Give started today and add a simple way for people to give that works seamlessly with your Clover Donations merchant account!
