GIVING FAQS


GENERAL

HOW DO I RESET MY PASSWORD?

Navigate to the login screen for either web or in-app Giving. There, you will find an option to reset your password using your email address. If you are unable to do so, please contact Subsplash Giving Support: giving@subsplash.com.

WHY WAS MY GIFT/CARD DECLINED?

Subsplash and your church do not decline gifts or cards, rather, Subsplash requests approval from the bank that issued the card. If a card is declined, a gift will be declined. If your card is not expired, you should contact the issuing bank to determine the cause. 

If the declined card was tied to a recurring gift, you will need to re-create the gift with a new card.

HOW DO I REQUEST A REFUND OR CANCEL A GIFT?

Please contact the organization’s Account Owner using the contact information on your receipt. The Account Owner will initiate the refund and contact you as soon as possible.  

WHY DO I SEE A MESSAGE THAT SAYS GIVING IS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE?

This means that the organization has temporarily disabled giving. Check back in a few days or contact the Account Owner.  

MY TRANSACTION FAILED AND THE REASON WAS "YOUR CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT THIS TYPE OF PURCHASE." WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

This message was caused by one of the following reasons:

Some cards are limited by border-crossing. If you card was issued in a different country than the organization you wish to support, this may be the problem. Please call your bank to determine if your card has been restricted.

Some cards (including corporate and FSA cards) can only be used for certain business reasons, including travel and healthcare. If you card is only available for specific business reasons and should work for this transaction, please let us know. (support@subsplash.com)

Some debit cards required a PIN to be entered. If you are trying to use one of these cards, you will need to use another card to complete the transaction.

LINKING A PAYMENT METHOD

Before you can donate with Subsplash Giving, you must link a payment type! You can link your bank account, debit, or credit card!

Linking a Bank Account

To link a bank account, you must complete a bank account verification process:

  • Select the type of payment source you would like to link! In this case, you would select “Link Bank Account.”

  • After entering your bank account and routing information, your account is listed as “unverified.”

  • To verify your account, Subsplash Wallet will transfer two deposits of less than $1.00 each to your account (these deposits are commonly referred to as micro deposits). It can take 1-3 business days for the micro deposits to appear in the account.

  • We send you two reminder emails so you remember to check your account for the micro deposits.

    • If you do not receive micro deposits within four business days of the day you linked the bank account, it is very likely the account information you entered was incorrect. You will need to remove the currently linked bank account and link your account again.

    • To remove the linked bank account simply select the item in your Payment Methods section of your Subsplash Giving account.

    • If you experience this issue after multiple attempts to link your account, please give your bank a call to verify your account information.

    • After three or more business days, the micro deposits will be withdrawn from your account, regardless of whether you have successfully linked your bank account.

    • If you do not verify your bank account, your bank account will remain in an “unverified” state indefinitely.

  • Once you have received the two micro deposits in your account, enter the amounts in your Subsplash Giving account to verify your account. Go to your Giving Account, click Payment Methods, select the unverified account, and enter the amounts of the micro deposits.

  • Once your bank account is successfully verified and linked, you may begin using your bank account as a payment source for your gifts!

 

LINKING A DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD:

  • Select the type of payment source you would like to link! In this case, you would select “Link a Debit or Credit Card.”
  • After entering your card account number, the expiration date and CVC code, you card should be successfully  linked!
    • If your card is declined when you enter your card information, it is possible your card has expired or something was mis-typed. Please check the information you entered.
    • If you continue to experience issues linking your card, please contact your bank to verify your card is activated.

    • Certain card types are not supported by Subsplash Giving, including Diners Club Cards and Canadian Interac cards without a Visa or MasterCard logo.

Please reach out to the organization you are hoping to donate to if you have any more questions regarding linking payment methods to your account!
