Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Enter Donations for Donors?
The Rapid Transaction Entry function allows a church or organization to quickly enter in a donation on behalf of a donor without having them create a donor account of their own. This feature instead creates an account for them and is especially useful if your church or organization receives pledge cards from your donors.
Note: This feature is only available for collections. The Rapid Transaction Entry cannot be used for event payments.
- Log in to your WeShare site using your email address and personal password.
- Click on the Admin button to access the administrative Control Panel.
- Go to the Giving Management toolbar and click on the Rapid Transaction Entry icon.
- Select the Collection the donor has chosen to support from the drop-down menu.
- Enter in the donor’s personal information. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk. Note: E-mail address is not a required field, but it is strongly advised.
- Enter in the donor’s payment type and account information.
- Indicate whether the donor is making a One Time or Recurring donation from the drop down menu. For recurring donations, select the frequency of the donation.
- Enter a Transaction Comment if needed and click Next to proceed to the confirmation screen.
- Confirm the transaction information, check the I Agree box and click Next to complete.

How Do Members Sign Up and Donate?
WeShare used to require members to set up an account before they made a donation. Today, anyone can easily create an account and donate to a giving opportunity at the same time.
- From the main WeShare page, your member simply clicks on the collection they wish to give to.
- Your member then clicks to set up a Recurring or One-Time donation and selects a recurrence pattern.
- Your member fills out all of their payment and contact information on a single form.
- Once the information is filled out, the donation will be finalized and the account will be created. They will receive a Success notification and a welcome e-mail, receipt, and login information will sent to the e-mail address provided.
