Collecting donations through GiveGab is great alternative to PayPal! 

With GiveGab, you can create beautiful custom donation forms, embed an easy-to-use widget right on your website, allow for donors to cover processing fees, and keep track of all your organization's valuable donor data in one convenient place. All things that PayPal does not offer through their payment portal.

Donations given through the GiveGab platform are paid out directly to your bank account that you provided when you signed up to GiveGab. This allows you to receive your donations in 5 business days after the gift is made. When making a donation on GiveGab, donors can do so easily right on your profile. When making donations with PayPal, the donor is taken to a separate page and is instructed to log in to PayPal.

Our payment processor, Stripe, is incredibly secure, rated as a PCI Level 1 Payment Processor by Visa, which means Stripe meets the most stringent level of security guidelines.

Donation payouts will reference Stripe and/or GiveGab on your bank statement when they've been transferred to your account. 

You can view a breakdown of all your donations by downloading a comprehensive donations report from the Fundraising Tab of your Admin Dashboard on GiveGab. Learn how here. This file will include the donation amount, the amount in credit card and platform fees, and the total payout amount and payout date for each donation.
