Reopening face-to-face with a bang!
Why contactless matters?
Let's face it: cash is no longer king. And it hasn't been for a while! According to the Bank of England, debit cards overtook cash as the most frequently used payment method back in 2017.
The pandemic has only accelerated this trend and, now that restrictions have been lifted, fundraisers need a new set of tools to take on a post-lockdown world.
That's where tap-on-phone comes it! It's a brand new solution that lets fundraisers take donations with their smartphones. That means no more hardware costs for charities, and an easy-to-use tool for fundraisers.
What is tap-on-phone?
Tap-on-Phone allows fundraisers to take card donations with their smartphones. It's a lot like Google Pay or Apple Pay except, instead of making a payment, your taking a donation with your phone.
All fundraisers need to do is download the GiveStar app, select which campaign or event they'd like to take part in, and start fundraising!
✨ Tap-on-Phone is a scalable solution for contactless fundraising. There are no hardware costs, which means you can empower every fundraiser with a simple message to download the app.
✨ It's easy-to-use for the fundraiser. Over 90% of adults in the UK have a smartphone, and tap-on-phone let's them fundraise with a system that they're already use to!
✨ This is a really quick way to roll out contactless. Apart from the cost of hardware, it also takes time and effort to distribute it to your supporters and then there are questions around returns. With a downloadable app, we can skip all that fuss!

But here's the deal: we want your feedback every step of the way. We want to know what works, what doesn't work and how we can the perfect system for your fundraisers. Sounds like a deal?
