Faith Media Center is a revenue-sharing digital and physical communication product distribution system that enables congregants to purchase or rent books, movies, music, and gift items from a retail distribution kiosk placed inside a church, through custom apps, or via a church Web site's Faith Media Center portal.
The Faith Media Center kiosk acts as an "on-location" delivery system. A church locates the kiosk in a lobby, common area, or bookstore. The kiosk incorporates a secure computer, a touchscreen interface, a payment module, and a series of access ports enabling connection to devices for the download of content. Also incorporated into the kiosk is a second screen used to display upcoming church events, welcome messages, and relevant third-party promotional advertisements.
The touchscreen interface is custom designed and developed for Faith Media Center. It enables users to browse content for rent or purchase. Users have the ability to gift to others as well as buy physical product. Physical products will be drop shipped to the designated recipient and the gifted e-content notification will be delivered via e-mail. Payment methods include credit/debit cards and PayPal/e-wallet. Members can also load money in their accounts for future purchases.
The Faith Media Center website, www.faithmediacenter.com, is the portal for member access to the entire network. Through the website, members access a custom-built Web portal specifically designed for each member church. Each church is given access to post details about their organization, location, upcoming events, pictures, videos and messages. Members can browse, buy, or rent products, and gift or drop-ship products. Members will also be able to connect with other users through the Faith Media Center forum.
Faith Media Center's set of apps that enable members to download content directly to their iPhone, iPad, Android devices, Kindle, Nook, PC, or Mac. These apps are secure and have been developed with proprietary encryption methodology. Members can view content on a maximum of five devices.
This product is free to churches and employs a revenue-sharing program.
