Leading card acceptance provider for charities PayaCharity was announced category winner for ‘Best Initiative from an SME’ and shortlisted in the ‘Changing Lives in the Community’ category at the 2019 Card and Payments Awards. Regarded as one of the biggest awards events of the year, the ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and was attended by more than a thousand senior figures in the payments industry.
Utilising their extensive experience, technology and segmented approach to card acceptance, PayaCharity has developed a reputation as the ‘go to place’ for charities looking to roll out a contactless donation solution. Key to this success has been bringing together all the components required to accept contactless donations. Each step of the process from application for a truly ‘Pay As You Go’ merchant account, set-up, fulfilment and support of the donation boxes is taken care of by PayaCharity, allowing charities to focus on their fundraising activities.
After the announcement, Bill Thomson, PayaCharity CEO commented: “We are absolutely thrilled with this prestigious award. Charities and community organisations are really starting to recognise and realise the benefits of contactless donations as an integral part of their fundraising activities. Our end-to-end solution and support allows them to focus on imaginative ways to promote their causes and attract meaningful valuable donation amounts.”
Since launching contactless donation boxes twelve months ago, PayaCharity has seen demand and successful deployment of contactless donation boxes in museums, animal sanctuaries, medical charities, religious organisations, zoos to name a few, and adoption by charities of all sizes.
