Datatel Introduces TXT-2-Donate Platform for Charities

Miami, Florida / Toronto, Ontario (Tuesday June 30th 2015) - 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 fundraising 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.
