Payment methods

Provide supporters with modern ways to give using cards, wallets, bank transfers, and noncash methods.

Fundraise Up's turnkey payment methods allow you to quickly and easily integrate modern payment methods into your giving experience. All of Fundraise Up’s offered payment methods are enabled from the Dashboard settings, with no coding required and minimal configuration.

We categorize payment methods into five families:

  • Cards
  • Bank debits
  • Bank redirects
  • Wallets
  • Crypto

Each family has similar features, a simplified activation process, and common Сheckout experience.
