Donor Pays Fees

Anedot allows donors to cover the transaction fee for a donation

We have found that donors utilizing the Anedot platform will pay the processing fee more than half the time when asked. This means utilizing the Donor Pays Fees feature could save your organization a lot of money!

If you enable Donor Pays fees, the donor will pay your processing percentage and the organization will only pay $0.30. 

NOTE: The FEC and many state boards of elections do not allow donor pays fees/donor covers fees to be used as they consider it an unreported in-kind contribution. Please check with your local compliance officer to confirm that you can legally use this feature.

Here's how it works:
