Where can I find information for a digital wall kiosk to hang up in a Shul to get donations or to pay Shul balances?

I saw that in Israel they have it in almost every shul but in the US I don't see it very often.

    "I saw that in Israel they have it in almost every shul": I've never seen this, and I've been in about two dozen synagogues in Israel within the past few months. That doesn't invalidate your question, of course: it's still reasonable to ask where to find info such a thing. Can you edit you question, though, to clarify what kind of info you seek? Do you want to know how it works? where it's made? where you can buy one? something else?

  • @sabbahillel, are you thinking of judaism.stackexchange.com/q/2773, perhaps?

  • @sabbahillel: That is for a zemanim display. This question is regarding a payment kiosk. Jan 2 '17 at 19:57
  • Ever been to Shomer Shabbos in Brooklyn, NY? They got these payment kiosks from a company called Charitybox or something similar.

ShulCloud offers such a system.

There are 2 popular ones in Israeli shuls (in no particular order):

  1. Nedarim Plus

  2. Kehiloth

    I'd be reluctant to give through any service with "Nedarim" in its name... I wonder why they chose that name.

I haven't seen those in any Israeli shul but it is still a good idea. Some options include

  • iPushka - interestingly they install the kiosks at zero charges and instead make money as a percentage of the payments
  • qGiv
  • GivingKiosk - originally built for churches
  • easyTithe - similarly, was originally built for churches
  • Karma Payments - which advertises to the Jewish community specifically

You could also build your own low-cost kiosk by leveraging an old tablet with the Square Reader.

Note that with the prevalence of mobile technology, you might be well served by a mobile donation system. We are planning this for our shul in Israel leveraging Hapoalim's bitpay and Leumi's Pepper Pay. The US equivalent would be Venmo or Paypal.

  • I've seen many such devices in Bnei Brak with which you could also charge your Rav Kav. Don't you have one at your place? May 10 at 14:15
  • @Kazibácsi I saw some of them live at the offices of non profits but not in synagogues
