It's free for a nonprofit or individual to set up a Mightycause page, so to support our business and continue providing our technology with no set-up fee, Mightycause retains a small percentage of each donation made on our platform.
On Mightycause, organizations have two donation fee options available to them.
Let Donors Cover Fee (Pricing Guaranteed Option):
Donors will be asked to cover an optional 6.9% plus $0.30 per transaction fee to include all platform and credit card fees. However, your organization will never pay more than 2.2% and $0.29 for processing the funds you raise.
Here's How It Works:
- Donors will be asked whether they would like to cover a transaction fee of 6.9% + $0.30 per donation.
- If a donor chooses not to cover the transaction fee, your organization will never pay more than 2.2% + $0.29 per transaction in aggregate within a disbursement cycle.
- So, if all of your donors choose to cover this fee, your organization will pay nothing.
- If none or some of your donors choose to cover this fee, you will be credited prior to your disbursement such that none of your aggregate transactions have a fee over 2.2% + $0.29 per transaction.
- Here's an example if you have a mix of uncovered and covered donations:
Example: If you received 10 donations for $10 each during the disbursement period and donors covered the fees for only 4 donations, your total uncovered fees would be $5.94 (6.9% + $0.30 per transaction for 6 transactions). With the price guarantee your fees will be capped at $5.10 (2.2% + 0.29 per transaction for 10 transactions) resulting in a $0.84 credit, that you will receive in that disbursement period.
Pay Fee with Donations:
If you would not like donors to be able to cover transactions fees, you'll want to opt-out of our Guaranteed Pricing option and choose "Pay Fee with Donations."
No checkbox option will be shown and the 6.9% plus $0.30 fee will be subtracted from the donor's contribution after they complete their transaction.
