We are partnered with the PayPal Giving Fund to ensure your donations reach your causes automatically every month
We are excited and delighted to share that Virtue is partnered with the PayPal Giving Fund to ensure your donations reach your causes automatically every month We heard from a lot of stores that manual donations are a hassle - so we changed things around! We also know that as well as using Virtue to discover new causes, sometime stores have specific organisations they want to team up with. This is where the PPGF partnership comes in.
What does Virtue X PayPal Giving Partnership mean?
From August 2022 store and customer donations will be processed by the PayPal Giving Fund. (PPGF). This means your donations will automatically go to your causes on the 20th of the month.
Virtue is incredibly excited to partner with PayPal Giving Fund to enable stores to find the perfect causes from our eco-system of 20,000+ UK for-good organisations.
Your store will be prompted to create/connect your PayPal account to Virtue
You will be prompted to create/connect a PayPal account to ensure automated donations reach your causes.
Are there fees for automating donations?
PayPal fee for processing donations is 1.6% +20p on the total monthly donation. This fee will be taken out of your donation total.
When do we need to connect Virtue to PayPal?
You will be prompted to create/connect your PayPal account to Virtue on the 20th of August, so on the day that the upcoming donations are due. Most stores can also do this now via the Payout screen.
