If you do make this change, you should make it optional for each church. We would probably opt not to include such an option, since we want the "transaction" to be as transparent and easy for the member as possible. In this case we would consider any (reasonable) credit card charges to be "the cost of doing business" and would be prepared to absorb that cost. Having said that, what's with the ten percent fee (in the original post) for using a credit card? Is that an accurate percentage? If so, it's outrageous, and we would probably take a pass on the entire deal!
