Why can I not use PayPal to collect donations?

GoFundMe has teamed up with payment processors WePay and Stripe to process donations and withdrawals.

 

GoFundMe only accepts donations via PayPal to Certified Charity campaigns created after 3 November 2016.


All Personal campaigns, as well as Certified Charity campaigns created prior to 3 November 2016, only accept donations by credit or debit cards.

 

If you are in the US or Canada, you will be set up with WePay. Users based in the UK, Australia and Europe will be set up with Stripe.

 

WePay and Stripe also have all the same great security features that PayPal has to protect you and your donors - you can learn more about that here:
