Use coupon code SAVEONT4S to save 50% when signing up for Calendar and Donations modules (that's just $36/mo)!
What payment processors can I use?

Tools 4 Shuls currently supports Paypal and Authorize.net. There are no monthly fees for either of these services, however you will need a Paypal Payments Standard account for your organization (you cannot use a personal account).

Does Tools 4 Shuls keep a portion of the money we collect from our community memebers?

No! Your payment processor (Paypal or Authorize.net) will keep a small processing fee for each transacation, but Tools 4 Shuls does not keep anything other than your monthly subscription fee. The money you collect for RSVP payments and donations goes directly from your members to you, and payment processing is handled securely by Paypal or Authorize.net.

What kind of Paypal account should we sign up for?

Here are full instructions (since it can get confusing):

1. Start here: https://www.paypal.com/us/mrb/pal=LVDLPFDVJB32S

2. click the "Start now" button then select "business" and click "continue"

3. Choose "Paypal Payments standard" (the "$0" section) on the next page, and then fill in all the appropriate info on the following pages.

Make sure you use a synagogue administrative email address — not your own — when you sign up. This will probably mean that you’ll need to create a new account rather than upgrading an existing one. This account is completely free (aside from the roughly 3% per transaction fees). you don’t need any type of account that has monthly fees.
