Cashless Donations


to give


donating has never been easier

Contactless has revolutionized how consumers pay for goods and services, and with fewer and fewer people carrying cash, contactless can do the same for charities. As buying habits have changed, the general public is moving towards a contactless environment, for both the purchase of low value goods and crucially donating by card or phone.

Why your charity needs contactless donations:

  • Fewer people are carrying cash

  • the average donation amount is much higher

  • Encourages spontaneous donation

  • More secure, less administration

  • Potential to reduce costs

  • Easier to track campaigns

  • Inspires confidence in your brand

  • More convenience to volunteers and donors

  • Cash usage reducing

Incremental Donations

Convenient giving

Contactless trials have shown that 30% of donors prefer donating by card instead of cash. Also, the
average cash collection box only accepts around £30 in cash which is liable to theft, is heavy and is time consuming to count the contents.
Experience learned that not only it’s more convenient to donate contactless, also the average donation amount is much higher.

In various implementation of contactless donation terminals in the Netherlands and the UK, Payter has witnessed average donations increase 150%, from £1.31 with cash to £3.28. Average total donations per station / box have also risen from £57 (cash only) to £124, with the top performing terminals netting £701.50 to £789 in just three or four hours.
