Our Digital Fundraising Solutions

We offer a variety of digital-only solutions for charities.

Bespoke Donation Pages

Design your own bespoke donation page for your website which is highly configurable and brandable to your organisation. Donors simply click through and are taken to your secure page to enter their details and the amount of their donation.


Charities and organisations can set up multiple causes to request donations to. This is ideal for large Charities or Religious organisations that hold multiple, simultaneous fundraisers throughout the year. You can also identify causes which are Gift Aid eligible.

QR Code Generation

Generate QR codes that phones can automatically read. This is ideal to email to your donors, add to your website or print as stickers. Fast to generate with the ability to create 100s in an hour. Easy to save and test. Can be pre-filled to request a specific donation amount or can be left blank to let donors choose their own amount.

Ultra Fast ‘14 Second’ Mobile Donations

Donors can now complete ultra fast mobile donations on their phone triggered by QR Code and NFC Tag technology leveraging Apple Pay and Google Pay. This reduces the donation process down to as little as 14 seconds using smartphones which can read QR Codes and NFC Tags without the need to download or open an additional app.

SMS Requests

Send SMS donation requests to your donor’s phones. Send individually or in bulk. Full instructions on how to create a CSV file included, along with a downloadable dummy file to populate with your information. SMS donation requests cost 10p per SMS with the option to resend unpaid donations requests. Generous 90 day expiry time.

Email Requests

Use your established email subscriber base to send email donation requests. Add your own PDFs to the emails you send. Can be sent individually or in bulk. Full instructions on how to create a CSV file along with downloadable CSV dummy file included. Free to send to multiple donors with the option to resend unpaid donations requests. Generous 90 day expiry time.

Donation Button Generation

Generate donation buttons for your website. These are automatically generated and simple to copy. There is a cause-specific option for individual web pages or multiple websites. Highlight a specific donation amount or leave blank to allow donor to choose their own amount.

Online Assistant

The Online Assistant is our step-by-step tool to help you to get the best out of the functionality that the PayaCharity Portal offers. When you visit a page that supports the Online Assistant it will appear automatically and ask if you need help. You will get step by step guidance on how to use the features we provide, allowing you to learn to use them as you go.

Donation Request Log

The donation request log confirms all donation requests sent and the status of the donation. You also have the ability to resend to all unpaid donations. This gives you valuable insights into your donor behaviour and allows you to build digital fundraising strategies for your organisation.

Gift Aid Reclaim

PayaCharity has launched a one of a kind service to allow Charities and religious organisations to maximise Gift Aid collection on donations made via our contactless devices as well as donations made online. Our tokenization technology allows you to match online donations to future contactless card donations, so you’ll never miss out on Gift Aid.

Apple Pay & Google Pay Enabled

Supporters can now give to your causes quickly and easily using Apple Pay and Google Pay. They can give remotely on their desktop computer, tablet or smart phone using card payments without the need to manually type their card details. They simply authorise their donation using their connected Apple Pay or Google Pay account.

Virtual Terminal

The PayaCharity Virtual Terminal makes it possible to accept credit and debit card donations to your charity without a traditional credit card machine. Charities and Fundraisers can take donations over the telephone and manually input all the card information and the amount and submit for authorisation. No additional software is needed, you only need to be able to log into your PayaCharity Portal via your device.
