Datatel Introduces TXT-2-Donate Platform for Charities

Datatel Communications Inc. introduces its TXT-2-Donate platform for Charities - allowing charities to provide their donors with a secure, simple way to initiate a Pay-by-Phone donation payment via a text message.

Datatel Communications Inc. / Datatel Inc. in Canada, a leader in Pay-by-Phone solutions on the Cloud, introduces TXT-2-Donate for Charities to provide an instant, hassle-free way for charities to collect donation payments 24/7 via mobile phone. 

Through Datatel’s TXT-2-Donate platform, donors initiate a secure donation payment by texting their name and address to a charity specific number provided by Datatel, which the charity publishes. No credit card information is ever transmitted via text.

The donor will receive a text response with a unique payment code and a telephone number to call to make the donation payment using their credit card. This process is completely secure. After the call is complete, the donor will receive a donation payment receipt via a text message. Meanwhile, the charity can easily track each payment as they also receive a confirmation of payment including donor information via e-mail. All funds are deposited to the charity’s merchant account.

The benefits of this donation payment method extend beyond just the convenience and ease of use. It adds another fund-raising channel for charities to increase revenue and reduce missed opportunities to collect donations. Additionally, since TXT-2-Donate is fully automated, it saves the charities the effort of designating a person to take payments over the telephone. Nonetheless, TXT-2-Donate is still low cost and easy to implement.
