Trusted Providers For Your Fundraising Journey

As the fundraising landscape continues to change, our customers can rely on us to support and provide the best solutions for a successful fundraising transformation. We embrace contactless technology and strive to deliver empowering services to our customers.

We offer a streamlined contactless donation solution which allow charities to fundraise in today’s fast-paced, increasingly cashless modern day world.

With fewer people carrying cash, over 120 million contactless cards circulating in the UK alone, and Apple Pay and Google Pay on mobile phones, contactless donation boxes make fundraising quicker, easier and smarter.

We help numerous organisations support their fundraising campaigns and card processing needs, allowing them to collect more donations and continue to do good.

Raising Pounds, Not Pennies

From trusts, societies and churches, PayaCharity is dedicated to providing an efficient and cost effective way of collecting donations via contactless devices.

Not only does this modernize the charity sector to be more functional and productive, it maximises donation amounts and increases charitable engagement.

Our History

PayaCharity is a trading brand of the Paya Group, which has spent over a decade providing card processing solutions to businesses of all sizes. We set out to address the affordability issues faced by charitable organisations that accept low volumes of card payments, and to tackle the increasing demand for contactless payment solutions within the third sector.

In 2017, with the accelerated growth of contactless payments, we chose to harness our technology to provide solutions to the newly demanding market. Since then we have significantly improved our product set and introduced a market leading fixed transaction fee and ethical gateway.

A key feature of our service is its simplicity and our ‘one-stop-shop’ proposition – making it easier for charities to adopt new contactless technology. Specialising in contactless donation devices, we now service many leading charities and have thousands of devices distributed throughout the UK.

At PayaCharity, we’re passionate technology providers with the ambition of having contactless donations becoming the norm for a sector that is embracing modernization, efficiency and effectiveness.

Celebrating 10 years

Founded in 2009, our goal was to address the affordability issues faced by small and micro businesses, and those that accepted low volumes of card payments.
