Ask Ken: What About the Fees?
We are having a disagreement among our leadership about whether donors should be given credit for the gifts they make via PayPal over our website or whether they should be credited only with the amount that comes to us after PayPal has taken its fee. For example: Sally makes what she takes to be a $100 contribution via PayPal through our website. Our church is credited with $97 after PayPal deducts its percentage. Should Sally’s giving statement from the church reflect $97 or $100?
