Collecting Money Just Got Easier and Less Expensive

Tired of getting this response when collecting money?

Organizations are fun to be a part of. You and your friends get to do some pretty amazing things together. And those experiences cost something.

What’s no fun about being involved in a group? Collecting money. It’s a necessary evil, though.

WePay is a site I’ve used recently and found it very helpful. Anyone can sign up and provide payment by credit or debit. This is an easy way to:

  1. Collect fees for event registrations
  2. Accept donations
  3. Send an invoice to someone (for dues, rent, t-shirts, or that one time they said they’d pay you back)
It’s a free service. Their transaction fees are beat PayPal’s at only $.50 for bank accounts or 3.5% credit cards. 

Use this link to sign up for a WePay account and receive $10 the first time you collect funds: https://www.wepay.com/x1kilvc

    ‘member that one time you said you’d pay me back?! No more IOU’s for you! But seriously, easy to set up and integrate into websites? I’ll check it out!

      … you gave me those mugs and pockets full of candy fair and square as I recall.
      Yes, it is SUPER easy to use. We used it for 4SqINDY’s 4SqDAY and were able to embed their widget on our blog with the code they give you after setting up events or donation forms. There are also short links for social sharing. It is overly simple and straightforward. Let me know what you think.
