Anyone can use FundRazr for free!
By default, all campaigns are set to Free Pricing. You can switch to a different pricing model during the campaign setup and, of course, you can make changes later if you change your mind.
Here are three main pricing models we offer:
Free Pricing is a universal model that may work for any type of a crowdfunding campaign, not including recurring donations campaign. With Free Pricing, you pay 0% platform fee. The only deduction from the money raised is a standard third-party payment processing fee that is defined by a selected payment processor – PayPal, WePay or Stripe (rate depends on which payment processor you select – usually 2.9%+$0.30 or your own negotiated rate, if you are a nonprofit). To cover our platform maintenance cost, we ask donors for an optional tip that they can easily opt out.
Standard Pricing supports industry-wide practice of deducting a modest commission from raised funds (5%). Standard Pricing is suitable for fundraisers who prefer to take care of a platform fee themselves instead of relying on a community. Donors are not asked for a tip.
Pro Pricing allows professional fundraisers configure and define their own pricing based on a campaign type or type of a crowd they are engaging. Organizations can create custom defined pricing presets and assign them to different types of campaigns (example: Peer-to-Peer – 75% recovery plan, Year-End – 100% recovery plan, etc.) With Pro Pricing, organizations can recover both platform and third-party payment processing fees.
When fundraisers create their campaigns, they get access to full platform functionality regardless of the pricing model they select.
Mix and Match Principle allows fundraisers and organizations with more than one campaign assign different pricing models to different campaigns.
You can collect payments via credit/debit cards, bank payments and optionally PayPal.
For payment processing, FundRazr partners with three leading payment providers. The payment processing options depend on your country and location. For example, bank payments are only available in the US.
If you are in the US, UK or Canada, you can use PayPal, Stripe or WePay.
If you are outside the US, UK or Canada, then you have two options:
All your payments are processed by our trusted payment processing partners.
The money moves directly from the donor’s account to your payment processing account.
FundRazr doesn’t touch or hold your money.
Depending on how you set up your payment processing account, your collected payments are deposited to your bank on a regular daily, weekly or monthly schedule.
For All or Nothing campaigns, your pledges are not processed until you achieve your fundraising goal and request releasing the funds. From that point, they act like Keep it All payments.
If you haven’t achieved your All or Nothing campaign goal, by the time it ends, no payments are processed and no charged are incurred.
