When a donation is made, a transaction fee may be taken by the third-party payment provider which currently could be either Paypal, PayPal Giving Fund, Stripe, or Amazon Pay depending on which options the charity has activated.
When we work with the charity and their payment account directly, that fee would be whatever their typical transaction fee is depending on what they may have negotiated with that payment provider. When donations are made, 100% of the donation is then sent directly to the charity account intended in real-time. From the contributions received by a charity, Tiltify is paid a fee for our technology and services. Charities who sign up for Tiltify can do so with no upfront fees or implementation fee. Those charities will pay a 5% platform fee. Our fee for other charities is typically negotiated by the charities based upon their technical & professional needs and as an average is 3.5%-4% of contributions that flow through the platform.
When donations are made to PayPal Giving Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity, PayPal Giving Fund receives your donation net of its payment processing fees and sends you a donation receipt. PayPal Giving Fund then grants the donated funds, net of Tiltify’s fee, to the recommended charity, subject to its terms.
