Requirements to withdraw

The person withdrawing must have a bank account in the currency that the fundraiser was set up in and meet all of the requirements listed below. 

If you do not meet the requirements for any of our supported countries, do not create a fundraiser. You must ask someone who does meet the requirements to create one for you. If you create a fundraiser and cannot withdraw the funds, all donations will be refunded.

Please note that our payment processor may require additional documentation to verify your identity and bank details. You can read more about that process in this article

If you are withdrawing funds into a business bank account, you can find more specific information and a helpful video on business withdrawals here.
