There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Nobody rides for free.
Everyone knows that no product or service comes without a price. The Givelify donation app is no different. But unlike other electronic fundraising solutions, we don’t charge you to sign up, and there are no monthly fees or hidden costs. We don’t need to make money-back guarantees because your organization isn’t charged up front.
Givelify Donation App Pricing Explained
Our pricing is simple and transparent:
2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction
This fee is taken off the top of the donation before it is disbursed into your bank account. For example:
- $10 donation = $9.41 deposited into your bank account
- $100 donation = $96.80 deposited into your bank account
You will never receive an invoice from us, because you don’t owe us anything. You’ll always know exactly how much will show up in your account, and you don’t have to worry about budgeting for a monthly bill.
The donation app is completely free for your members to download and use. There are no fees charged to them, and there are no in-app purchases.
What Does the Transaction Fee Cover?
There are many components that go into building and maintaining the Givelify donation app. There are fees associated with processing credit and debit cards, and these fees are usually passed along to organizations in one form or another.
There are also costs to the technology that underlies our giving platform. And above all, it takes people–Team Givelify–to make it all work for you.
Here are some of the costs that are covered by our low transaction fee:
PCI DSS Compliance Fee
PCI DSS Compliance is a cost that is imposed by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards Counsel onto credit card processing service providers and sales organizations. It covers overseeing and controlling security practices for card processors.
Payment Processing Fee
Every credit or debit card transaction costs money for the merchant or organization. These fees vary among issuing banks and credit card companies.
Mobile, Online, and Social Giving
In addition to the mobile donation app, we also provide online giving for your website and social giving for Facebook, Twitter, and email. These features undergo the same rigorous development and testing process as the app.
Ongoing Product Development
The Givelify app will never truly be “finished.” We strive to keep making it the best, easiest, and most beautiful giving solution you’ll ever use. A great deal of time and talent goes into making that quest a reality.
