It integrates fully into our site – including automatic Gift Aid – and so allows us to keep donors on our own website. Before we started using them, our analytics showed that people would disappear once they clicked from our site into another to finalise their donation. Our stats now show that we are keeping the user with us after donation. I think donors trust the process more because they’re donating directly to us. And, since we’ve brought in a Direct Debit option using their system our donations have increased by 600%.
We like the ease of using Charity Checkout for donations, ongoing monthly support and ticket sales. It’s ideal to be able to do everything using the same branded platform which people can associate as being us.
For any small charity wanting to try and get into online giving, I definitely think Charity Checkout is the way forward. Their system is user friendly and does exactly what it says.
