Accounts and Subaccounts

Within your eCatholic Payments account, you can organize your transactions using Accounts and Subaccounts. This allows you to know exactly where your donations and payments are coming from and where they should be going to.


What is an Account?

An Account is a category designating where money is going TO. In most cases, an Account is named after a particular department at your parish, school, or organization.

Accounts can be created and managed in the Payments Center.


What is a Subaccount?

A Subaccount is a subcategory designating where money is coming FROM. Most often, a Subaccount is the page on your website via which a donation or payment is submitted.

Subaccounts can be updated in the settings for a Donation Form or Payments Form.
