“Recurring Donations” to Reduce Marketing Costs & Non-stop Flow of Funds:

Please note that you don’t need a plugin, extension, or add-on to enable recurring donation on your WordPress-powered nonprofit website.
This feature is pre-built into the PayU payment gateway extension.
With this option, automated recurring donations will keep crediting into your charity’s account from willing donors.
So, you can reduce the marketing costs required to reach out to old or new donors to do the same fundraising as you did the previous month or year.
The money saved on marketing can be diverted to either charity projects or attract new donors.
This feature enables your donors to:
  • Make repeated donations after ‘predefined’ regular intervals.
  • Set a flexible and convenient ‘giving frequency’ from weekly to yearly or somewhere in between.
  • Fix an amount for recurring donations they can easily afford.
  • Authenticate automatic deduction of a given donation amount as the due date arrives.

4 Ways Donors & You Can Benefit from PayU’s Local Payment Options:

Both the ‘philanthropists’ and your nonprofit organization can benefit a great deal from hundreds of local payment options available with PayU gateway.

Extremely Economical:

First, local methods involve much less payment processing costs than international transactions.

Donor Uses a Methods Already in Use:

Second, it allows each donor to donate with a payment method they might already be using for personal or business transactions.
So, they don’t need to create an account or provide detailed personal financial information to make a donation.

Faster, Securer:

International transactions are usually riskier than the local ones. In addition to being securer, local donation payments are also faster.
They involve no intermediary channels (banks) which may prolong the payment transfers.

Easiest to Access and Simplest to Use:

The fourth major advantage of local payment methods is that they are within an easy reach of each donor.
Similarly, involving less complexity, such methods are usually easier to work with for any layman.

Multiple Ways to Reduce Expenses Between Your Donor and You:

  • Setup fees
  • Integration costs
  • Maintenance fees
  • Processing fees
  • Exchange rates
  • Commissions
  • Fees charged by intermediary banks (financial institutions)
