How is Donorbox different from Stripe or PayPal?

While Stripe and PayPal are excellent payment processors that allow you to accept online transactions, they don't offer a specialized form to collect donations or store donor data. They also don't provide a good facility to manage recurring donations.

For more Donorbox features that are donation-specific and not offered by PayPal or Stripe, see our help article.

How do I receive a nonprofit discount from Stripe and PayPal?

Both Stripe and PayPal offer a discounted payment processing rate for registered 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

To apply with PayPal, visit their nonprofit center.

To apply with Stripe, email [email protected] with the information found here.

I thought Donorbox was free. Why am I being charged a fee?

Donorbox is free to use if you receive less than $1,000 in donations in a month. If you reach $1,000 in a month, we charge our low platform fee of 1.5% for that month's total donations.

Please note that no matter how much you receive, Stripe and PayPal will charge their processing fee on every donation.

What's included if a donor chooses to cover the processing fee in their donation?

If you offer this cover fee option on your donation form, your donor may choose to include the donation processing fee as part of their donation. This fee includes both the payment processing fee from Stripe/PayPal and the Donorbox platform fee of 1.5%. Depending on whether you've applied for the discounted nonprofit processing fee, this will amount to a total fee of approximately 3.7 - 4.4%.

See our help article for more details.

Why does Donorbox invoice me instead of deducting a fee from my donations, like Stripe and PayPal?

If we deducted our fee immediately from your donations, we wouldn't be able to offer our free tier. We only charge our 1.5% platform fee if you receive $1,000 or more in donations in a month. Therefore, we wait until the month is over to see if you will incur any Donorbox fees.
