eGiving Transfer Types

Recommended Transfer Types

Abundant

Pulls transactions and donor information from Abundant based on the activities you set up and the specified date range. PDS attempts to match transactions with families based on email address or name. If a new family gives, you can add them in PDS.

Transactions are posted every bank day (excluding weekends and holidays) at 3:00 PM EST. All transactions that have been submitted since the last time transactions were posted will be placed in two batches: one for credit card transactions and one for ACH (checking and savings transactions). These batches represent deposits made to the bank account for that day.

Vanco - Auto Connect

Uses the credit card and checking/savings account information stored on the Vanco website instead of sending it from the PDS data file. Parishioners can link directly from your website to secure donation pages. From there, they can make one-time donations/payments or set up a series of automatic donations/payments. If a new record is found online, you can add it in PDS before posting.

To review and verify transactions, use the Check eGiving Status quick posting.
