WHY DID LUMUNOS SWITCH SYSTEMS?
The company we were using has been raising prices and is no longer competitive. Their system was cumbersome and complicated to maintain, while their customer service had declined.
WHY DID WE SWITCH TO PAYPAL?
For starters, PayPal is a low cost way to go. 97.8 cents of every dollar you donate goes to Lumunos. And, PayPal securely processes millions of transactions everyday. Their information protection systems are best-in-class, and they think carefully about making their webpages easy for people to navigate.
