Payment Processor VS. All-Inclusive Nonprofit Software

Many nonprofits fall into one of two categories: they either set up a payment processor such as Paypal or Square for donations and move on or they set up an individual payment processor, an email marketing platform, multiple social media channels, a Canva account, have 20+ excel spreadsheets, and countless other accounts they can’t remember their passwords to. That’s exhausting! UncommonGood is here to say enough is enough. Nonprofits need and deserve an all-inclusive platform that does it all!

What is a payment processor?

Payment processors are software programs designed to securely send and receive payment transactions through a variety of payments from credit and debit cards, bank accounts, Apple and Google Pay, and even crypto. The payment processors work with the card companies and banks on the back end to transfer money. They allow online and offline transactions and usually have their own hardware for in-person transactions. Payment processors do take a percentage of every transaction they process and also charge a fee per transaction as well. 

While payment processors allow you to accept online transactions, they don’t offer a specialized form to collect donor data making it difficult and laborious to track donor history, retention, and community growth – all important metrics for nonprofits.

What is an all-inclusive nonprofit platform?

UncommonGood’s nonprofit software is an all-inclusive platform that gives nonprofits access to payment processing, donor data collection, marketing, fundraising, and operational tools. Everything is within the platform – no need to open multiple browsers, documents, and papers on your desk. That means 1 login for 1 platform for ALL of your needs. And for 1 flat monthly fee!
