A. We don’t! You get 100% of the Gift Aid, and you can claim it at any time through our system which integrates directly and securely with HMRC’s servers.
Q. Are you registered with the Charity Retail Association?
A. Yes – in fact we are the only online giving platform registered with the CRA, you can find us on their website in the directory (correct as of 11/6/18).
Q. What’s the reporting like?
A. You have real-time reporting on all donations/ticket sales available online through the online reporting platform tengoCloud – and you can also submit Gift Aid claims to HMRC through it. Reports on all data can be found, they are customisable, exportable, and also TripGiving can integrate directly with Charity CRM, and EPoS Systems.
Q. When and how does our charity get paid, and how do we pay transaction fees?
A. At the end of each month, you’ll be sent a statement showing the total amount taken in the previous month with a breakdown of the fees (30p + 2.9%). At the same time, you’ll be sent a BACS payment for all sales, less the fees. Gift Aid is paid to you directly by HMRC. Payouts are only made if there is at least £50 owed to your charity.
Q. What do other charities think?
