There are NO upfront fees. When a donation is made, a transaction fee is taken by either Stripe or Paypal, whichever third party donation processors the charity has activated . Stripe Credit Card processing is 2.9% plus 30 cents unless the charity already has a lower fee and Paypal processing is 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction also unless the charity already has a lower fee. A platform fee is taken out by Tiltify of up to 5% in order to keep building features and keep the site alive to continue to help everyone raise more money for causes.
Payment are processed directly through either Stripe or Paypal. Charities will see our platform fee taken out AFTER the full amount of their donation is deposited in their paypal or stripe account.
