Donation App Fees: What You Get With Givelify

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 upfront.

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 entirely free for your members to download and use. No fees are charged to them, and there are no in-app purchases.

What Does the Transaction Fee Cover?

Many components go into building and maintaining the Givelify donation app. Fees associated with processing credit and debit cards 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.

credit card processing fees

Here are some of the costs that are covered by our low transaction fee:

PCI DSS Compliance Fee

PCI DSS Compliance is a cost imposed by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards Counsel on 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 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 indeed be “finished.” We strive to keep making it the best, easiest, and most beautiful giving solution you’ll ever use. Much time and talent go into making that quest a reality.

Top-Notch Phone and Email Support

We hear it always: “I can’t believe I can just call and talk to a live person right away.” Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Time, cheerful, knowledgeable support is a phone call away.

Email assistance through our online support center and direct messaging on our Facebook page are available seven days a week.
