Rotessa features

Withdraw donations directly from donor’s bank account

Customizable online pre-authorized consent form

Donors can schedule flexible recurring donations

No setup fee, contract or monthly fee

Charity Discount of 30% on transaction fees

Waiving of any declined payment charges (note, individuals may still be charged by their bank)

Pricing is based on transaction volume

(Not percentage-based like credit cards)

Rotessa has no minimum fee to have an account, and they will only charge based on usage. Rotessa has given all our FMC Churches who apply a 30% charity discount rate. (Prices below include discount).











The donations will be deposited directly into your church bank account approximately 4 business days after each processing date scheduled (this allows for the bank to notify of any declined payments). The fees will be taken out of the church bank account once a month based on the invoice amount from Rotessa.

Pre-authorizations from your donors

Once you have setup an account, authorization agreements are required in order to pull money from your donor's bank account

Rotessa has a custumizable online tool that lets you choose one of two options:
  1. Open authorization agreement form – which doesn’t let the donor specify the amount they give on the form, they must communicate this to you outside the form (email/phone, etc.)
  2. Customer defined agreement form – which the donor specifies the amount, date, frequency, and number of installments of the donation they’d like to give.

There is no need to print and save these authorization forms at your church because they are securely stored online under your account. You can also print out a paper version if people prefer filling it out offline.

If donors need to make changes to their giving, Rotessa recommends making these changes no later than 2 days before the desired processing date to avoid missing any cut-off times for transactions.

Rotessa also allows your church to add multiple users to the Rotessa account with varying permissions to facilitate bookkeeping.

Once you’ve signed up for your Rotessa account you can go and customize your authorization agreement form for your church. Copy the link for this form so that you can send it out to your congregation.
