August Update: The Classy API and Peer-to-Peer Public Beta

In March, we released a completely revamped version of the Classy API, which provides more power, flexibility, and customization for nonprofits and third-party developers. The new Classy API is also the foundation of all the ways Classy is pushing the envelop on nonprofit technology this year: the new Fundraising Suite, Classy for Salesforce Version 6, and Classy Pay.

Classy Mode Now Available for New Fundraising Suite Campaigns

Fee-on-Top—now called Classy Mode—enables supporters to cover fees in addition to their donation amount.

If you’ve created a new Crowdfunding or Peer-to-Peer campaign, you may have noticed that “Classy Mode” had a “Coming Soon” addendum.
