The current fee structure for payments is as follows:
|Donation Amount||Payment Processer Fee (2.2% + $.30 of Donation Amount)||GoodBookey Fee (3% of Donation Amount)||Net to Charity||% of Donation Processed to Charity|
We have negotiated reduced transaction fee terms with Stripe from 2.9% down to 2.2%. Additionally, Stripe has generously agreed to waive their 2.2% transaction fee for the first $15,000 worth of donations PER nonprofit! Smaller transactions such as the $1 donation, will have a higher fee structure due to the payment provider's transaction fee. GoodBookey will not exceed the fee structure as shown, without written notification to participating charities. We reserve the right to waive the 3% fee for GoodBookey.
A small amount of time for setup by your administration is required. However, there are no fees for the charity to pay.
Charities will use their existing Stripe account or set up a new Stripe account for secured payment processing. Stripe will require the following items: Nonprofit's official name, Tax ID#, address, bank account #, information items about a legal representative from the charity and the charity must accept the *Stripe Connected Account Terms of Service.
Stripe is our payment processing partner. High traffic and high user applications like Uber use Stripe to process their transactions. Stripe has partnered with us to waive the transaction fee for the first $15,000 raised per nonprofit as well as provided us long term reduced transaction fees after the first $15,000.
Payments will be processed directly to your organization as the users pay. This should happen within one business day of the user making the donation.
There are many factors that influence the amount that your charity will receive over time. We will be able to share with you information such as user participation and the amount due to your organization at the end of each month. Over time we expect to provide more forecasting accuracy however we will need several months of data to model donation habits properly.

This is possible. We will do our best to provide multiple missions within our network of charities. However, we want to provide and support a diverse set of missions so it is unlikely that there will be more than two organizations with a similar mission.
We will be limiting the number of charities based on number of users.
Yes. We are interested in cross promotion. We will provide our user base an update when a charity joins the organization and will offer campaigns to charities when special events occur.
In the first year, we will only use local promotion, social media and partner relationships like Stripe to promote the application.
We will be starting with a Web-APP and going to native IOs and Android by the end of 2016.
