Your GoFundMe campaign is able to accept donations as soon as you finish customising it and see the "Your campaign is ready!" message. Donors only need to visit your GoFundMe campaign and click or tap on the "Donate Now" button to start making their payment.
What kinds of payments can I accept?
US & Canada: Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard, Discover or AmEx credit card or debit card.
Australia & Europe: Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard or AmEx credit card or debit card.
UK: Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard or AmEx credit card or debit card. *Maestro cards cannot be accepted.
GoFundMe campaigns cannot accept payments by cheque, phone or any other payment processors (such as PayPal). If someone gives you cash or a cheque outside of GoFundMe, you can add it as an Offline Donation. Learn more.
How will I know when people donate?
