Most Common Questions
Whether you have worked on campaigns before or if this is your first campaign it is going to be an adjustment using RTM. Having questions on the platform is very common, but we have some easy solutions to these common questions.
1. When Will I Get My Money?
RTM follows standard banking laws and procedures. Funds must be approved by the banking institution and sent to RTM before we can send the funds to your bank account. This process typically takes about 4 to 6 business days. We have no control on speeding up this process.
2. How Can I Access My Deposit Reports?
Every time a contributor makes a contribution to your campaign, you will receive an email from email@example.com giving the name and information and the amount of the contribution. After 4-6 business days, you will get an email from firstname.lastname@example.org notifying you we have initiated a transfer of funds into your bank account. This email will include deposit reports attached as PDF documents. Keep theses PDF documents for filing purposes. Creating a file for RTM Documents is highly recommended, so these documents are easy to find and send between your team when that reporting deadline creeps up on you.
3. How Can I Connect My Account With Facebook?
First, we recommend using Google Chrome. This browser makes it easier to integrate with the Facebook PlugIn. Please click here to watch the video done by our programmer explaining the integration process.
4. Donors Are Telling Me “They Can’t Contribute.” What Do I Do?
First of all, do not panic. Sometimes the biggest problems have the easiest solutions. First of all, immediately make a test donation of $1 to the campaign. After your test donation is processed, you will know it is a donor error. 99% of all contribution issues are donor error. Remind donors that factors including a lagging internet service provider and older computer systems impact their ability to give online. Our system has never had down time. Tell the donor to try again. If our system ever has an issue, we know it before you do and we will notify you.
