I use it not only at stores in person but also online. It's so easy to use. I've been a victim of identity theft before and I just feel safer using it online than entering my individual credit card info every time. Plus I get cashback on purchases!

GoFundMe is well suited for personal appeals where a story can be told and donors feel an immediate result or effect. It is less appropriate for larger mass appeals that are not targeted directly to a specific cause. For example, not good for companies to ask for funding for operating expenses.

Apple Pay easily allows users to add or remove different credit cards.

As an example, I can't use Apple Pay and still choose when I want my delivery because it's not in Apple Pay's coding to allow outside restrictions.

Processing rates are not horrible but not great either - If we used our own processor our fees would be cut in half. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

GoFundMe is very easy to use and does a great job allowing us to share insights and stories to leave a lasting impression on donors. From setting up the account to ending the appeal, the entire process has been very user-friendly. I'm very impressed with the experience so far and plan to continue using it for future campaigns.

Crowdrise has been great with their customer support. They have always been helpful and available. They also have several resources on their website that has been useful to other areas of our non-profit. Their relatability has been positive for us and has made us feel taken care of and considered.

Our choice to use Apple Pay was made because of the fast and easy access to funds, it is largely accepted by most vendors and it is a knowingly secure platform for transactions. Making it a trusted and effective resource for our company to utilize. We also found the setup to be more user-friendly.

Since GFM was selected for us I can't give the rationale behind that. However, I do think that
and Salsa are more internally user-friendly and provide at least the same amount of functionality. That being said, the other two (I think) require CRMs to use whereas GFM can just integrate with others, making it a better choice for one-off campaigning.
