Is there a catch?
BetterUnite is a no-cost solution for you to use. Our goal is to liberate nonprofits and mission-driven organizations from over-burdening and under-utilized software that takes money from your mission every month.
How can BetterUnite afford to provide a free service? Instead of asking you or your organization to pay for BetterUnite, we simply request that the donors contribute to covering our operating costs during the checkout process. Donors, ticket buyers and purchasers are asked to provide a variable platform tip to BetterUnite - 5% of their contribution, capped at $20. Should the donor choose to lower the amount that they give to BetterUnite, they can do so to 2% or $1. Regardless, you, as the organization/administrator, are not asked to supplement the donors’ tip.
If you should chose to cover the BetterUnite tip, rather than passing it along to your donors, we can facilitate that as well. In that case, we lower our tip down to 2%, and we still cap it at $20.

Outside of the BetterUnite platform, the 3rd party payment processor (WePay) charges a standard 2.9%+30c to facilitate credit card transactions and 1%+30c for bank account transfers and e-checks. We allow for you to cover the payment processor fees or pass them along to your donors on an optional or mandatory basis.
