Things churches should know when filling out a Merchant Application for a new ParishSOFT Giving website
- The church's account manager may be able to assist with filling out these applications.
- The Principal-Agent mentioned in the form can be anyone, as long as they have they can authorize charges to the account and sign checks for the account.
- If a church's bank is merging, so they would be getting new bank account numbers/routing numbers, it may be best to set up the giving site with the new account (if the merge date is known). To do so, submit a letter from the new bank on the bank's letterhead showing the new bank's name and account/routing number.
