Thanks for reaching out.
- For the best and most accurate information we would suggest you confirm with any agency to determine what is officially recognized, as Charitable produces similar receipt pages, emails, and (with addons) PDFs as most other commerce systems.
- Charitable collects 3% platform fees (Stripe) for the lite version, and no fees for any paid license.
Let me know if you have any further questions! Thanks for checking us out!
So, as I’m not going to be using Stripe but only Paypal, does that also mean that <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>if we are not using Stripe, then there are no fees per transaction collected by Charitable</span>?
Also, are receipts generated and sent automatically with each transaction?
Many thanks! ☺
@styzer at the time of this writing there shouldn’t be non-Stripe transaction fees with the lite version (although gateway fees any gateway would charge you would still apply). Email receipts can be activated and customized in Charitable settings, and can be sent to a donor (and others) automatically. Hope this helps!
“at the time of this writing there shouldn’t be non-Stripe transaction fees with the lite version (although gateway fees any gateway would charge you would still apply).”
OK, so I’m trying to assess the <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>sustainability</span> of this plugin for my client: ► does this mean you could suddenly decide to charge for Paypal-only transactions and it would be forced on us? ► Or would we be grandfathered into it, meaning we would benefit from the same status as when we installed it?
Thank you! ☺
@styzer I’m only speaking to things as they current exist. There are no plans currently to do this so therefore today I couldn’t speak to what we wouldn’t or would do in the future. We want to make sure as many people as possible get value out of Charitable. Hope this helps! Thanks!
Excellent, I forwarded all this encouraging info to my client and just waiting to hear back from her within the next few days.
Many thanks! ☺
