Fundraising using Accountable is very easy!
You can receive one off donations, monthly contributions, sell event tickets & others!
People can donate two ways:
Credit/Debit Card - the platform uses Stripe, which is a third party software, to process card payments safely and in real time. Stripe takes a fee 20p + 1.4 % of the amount sent. Neither us or Open Collective are ever able to waive this. In addition to the 5% hosting fee.
Bank Transfer - if someone donating to your page selects bank transfer, they will receive an email from us with our bank details and a reference number. They need to make sure to include the reference number when they transfer to ensure we can allocate the donation back to you.
For the most part we try not to get directly involved in your relationship with your contributors. Whether they're members of your community or just generous supporters, we prefer to let you run your group in your own way and only step in if there's a problem. If anyone has a general question about donating to your page we recommend sharing this FAQ for contributors from OC. If someone has a specific problem or need help with this, just reach out to us and we'll do our best to help.
