Donations and refunds made in Go Method are transferred to Planning Center Online, eliminating redundant data entry.
When donors donate, we apply the donation to a batch for the day. If no current batch exists, Go Method creates one in PCO and adds the donation to that batch. All donations made for the day go to this batch.
If needed, Go Method can refund donations, and PCO records the refund.
- Fund: The donation selected under PCO Options when editing an event in Go Method.
- Amount: The amount of the transaction.
- Person: Donor that provided the funds. PCO creates a record of this person.
If you use PushPay for online giving, transactions are recorded in your ChMS via PushPay and not Go Method.
PushPay writes a transaction and one detailed record of the transaction to the ChMS . Go Method identifies the transaction and splits the transaction into details necessary. For example, if four people sign up for a trip and the payment needs to be split, Go Method divides and assigns the transactions to the right group members in the ChMS.
