What is Tap-on-Phone fundraising?
Contactless fundraising just got really easy - no hardware, no problem!
Fundraising in a cashless world
Now that restrictions have been lifted, it’s time to get out there and start fundraising again. But first, we need to empower our amazing fundraisers with a new set of tools for a post-lockdown world.
As we all know, cash donations are in decline (and have been for a while!), with the donation bucket being past its sell by date.
What fundraisers need is an easy-to-use contactless solution. Luckily, we've had one for a while! Cancer Research UK, Christian Aid and NSPCC are just some of the dynamic charities using our devices to collect more donations at their events, in the community and with their corporate partners.
But we want to go so much further! That's why we've developed Tap-on-Phone. It's brand new, and let's fundraisers collect donations with just their smartphone. That means no more hardware costs, and easier way for fundraisers to unlock more donations. Cool, huh?
How will Tap-on-Phone work?

So what are the benefits of tap-on-phone?
✨ 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!
We've got some the most dynamic charities signed up to trial tap-on-phone this September and the great news is, you can join them!
At the moment, this trial is only with Android phones but it's an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of contactless fundraising.
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 create the perfect solution for your fundraisers. Sounds like a deal?
