Today’s nonprofits aren’t limited to only accepting credit card payments or checks. Instead, changemakers can make full use of modern payment processing options like Venmo, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Tap to Pay, and more. All you need is a secure fundraising platform with a built-in payment processor, like Givebutter, to unlock easy donation processing.

Donation processing, also known as nonprofit payment processing, is all about accepting and transferring payments from donors (like donations or ticket sales). This way, you can use those funds to support your mission. It covers everything from receiving a donation to making sure the funds end up securely in your account (or the beneficiary organization’s account if you're fundraising on behalf of a nonprofit).

Absolutely! You can require donors to cover the 2.9% + 30¢ processing fee charged by our secure payment processors or give them the choice to opt in.

If a donor chooses not to cover the processing fees, then this is deducted from the total amount they donated, and your nonprofit receives the remaining donation amount without paying anything out of pocket.

Nope! Givebutter manages all of that for you and will pay out funds from all payment methods directly to your bank account. No need to set up or manage your own payment processing tools.

Not at this time. Givebutter has a proprietary relationship with Stripe that allows us to offer multiple payment methods and provide the best customer experience. You'll create a dedicated Stripe Express account within Givebutter and process all payouts there.

Funds remain pending for 2–3 business days to ensure there are no chargebacks, refund requests, or fraud. Once funds are available for payout, you can withdraw them at any time (unlike many other vendors who hold payouts for 30–45 days!).

Yes! Verified nonprofits can request automated payouts after completing their first manual payout.
