About us

Crosspay Giving is an international low-cost payment solution product for Christian organisations that allows contributors to make online payments anytime and anywhere using our website or mobile application. We were established in February 2019 as a payment management system for Christian organisations to receive donations quickly and efficiently through the SaaS (Software as a Service) model. Crosspay Giving is the product of Crosspay Group, a company with over 75 years combined experience specializing in digital cross border payments from Europe to over 120 countries. We also offer Church Management solutions and Custom Apps for churches providing a comprehensive suite of products and services that leverage our relationship with other churches and increases their stickiness. We have enrolled over 200 churches on Crosspay Giving resulting in over 5,000 members benefiting from both our church giving and cross-border payment offerings.


Crosspay Giving was born out of the challenges that the management of Crosspay experienced as church leaders with regards to funds received into charities they were working with. Experts predict that much of society could become cashless in the next decade or so. We believe that most of the church is at the risk of sleepwalking into a cashless society without awareness of the congregation’s needs, trends in payments and, the government’s regulatory directives. Realizing this need of embracing the new normal, we offer comprehensive and competitive solutions to churches and Christian charities to grow and streamline their giving and to improve the engagement with their community.


We are headquartered in London, United Kingdom, considered not only as one of the world’s pivotal financial centres but also the favoured destination of people from around the world to live and operate. Our location is a key asset as most Christian organisations have bases in the UK and are looking for methods to not only receive but also transfer funds to their partners globally. We are sure that our comprehensive solutions will provide a seamless and desirable experience for both the Christian organizations as well as for the communities they engage with.
