Why do nonprofits need a donation payment processor?

Nonprofits need a payment processor to enable them to fundraise online, but accepting donations is just one part of the equation. Nonprofits have a diverse constituency base, and not every segment wants to donate the same way. It’s critical to offer a variety of payment options to drive conversion and acquire new donors. We believe this choice shouldn’t come at the cost of complexity.

Classy pay offers the payment options donors want. We provide transaction reporting, payout reporting, and processor management all from within Classy Manager so all of your program management can happen alongside the rest of your fundraising efforts.

Does Classy Pay reduce fraud?

Yes, Classy’s multi-tiered security stack is designed to protect your organization and its data. An example of this is Stripe, one of Classy Pay’s payment processing partners, which has been shown to reduce fraudulent activity by up to 25% with Stripe Radar.

Is there a credit card processing or transaction fee?

There are processing fees associated with each of Classy Pay’s processing partners. Effective 9/1 credit card transactions start at 2.4% + $0.30 and PayPal/Venmo transactions start at 2.5% + $0.30.
