‘We originally tried to deal directly with suppliers and banks to set up contactless payments for our organisation. However after 8 months of backwards and forwards and untold staff time chasing instruction manuals and packages lost in shipping, I was ready to give up. This is where Payacharity came in, not only did they coach me through the process, they then set up two rental boxes with less than two days’ notice’.

Market Trends

According to the UK Card Association, by April 2017 there were over 108 million contactless cards in issue, and for that month alone £3.9 billion transactions were taken with an average value of £9.40.  This figure is growing continually, and is the reason why many charities have switched to new contactless technology.

Why Contactless?

  • Fewer people carry cash
  • Encourages spontaneous donations
  • Higher average values donated
  • Easier for charities to manage
  • Less admin – no cash to collect or bank
  • Easier to track campaigns

Why Payacharity?

Payacharity has invested in the latest technologies to offer an affordable & scalable way of accepting contactless donations. We provide the complete package, including a choice of contactless collection boxes, online, telephone, card machines services, merchant accounts together with real-time, online tracking.
