Text to Donate vs. Text to Give
Text to donate, text to give, credit card, or carrier billed? Here are the facts about text donations.
While text to give used to mean a donation billed directly to the cell phone carrier, today the two terms are used interchangeably for any solution that allows donors to donate directly from their phone.
All MobileCause text-to-give solutions are credit card billed, meaning the donor provides their billing information at the time of donation for direct remittance to your organization with your MobileCause nonprofit merchant account.
