By adopting the Payter P66 device, the museum has streamlined its donation process, resulting in substantial financial support for its operations.

Prior to August 2020, the Football Museum Manchester relied on a staff member to collect and manage donations for their popular Virtual Penalty activity, where participants donated £2 to take part. This manual process was both time-consuming and less efficient. Recognising the need for improvement, the museum installed the Payter P66, an unattended, PCI compliant solution provided by PayaCharity.

Key Features of Payter P66:

  • Unattended device, reducing the need for staff involvement
  • PCI compliant, ensuring secure transactions
  • Seamless update capabilities for donation amounts

Since the installation of the Payter P66, the Football Museum Manchester has seen a remarkable increase in transactions and donations:

Average Transactions:
42,000 per year.

In response to the device's success, the museum decided to increase the donation amount from £2 to £3.

The implementation of the Payter P66 has led to impressive financial gains for the Football Museum Manchester:
