Lifted Loads will work together with you to set up your own fully working Lifted Loads website in a couple of days. For your part you will be expected to provide the following:
- A website administrator who will manage your Lifted Loads website. The platform administrator does not have to have any technical skills.
- A couple of trusted church members that will act as project reviewers and approvers. These roles can be assigned after the website is up and running.
- A PayPal business account, which can be set up for free and linked to your existing bank account. Any donations to the church will be routed to this account.
Once you sign up for a subscription we will send you a form where you will be able to provide all of the required details.
