Anyone can be up and running and collecting donations in less than two minutes.

YouCaring is pleased to announce the addition of the WePay payment gateway to the free online fundraising website, YouCaring.com. The website which was launched in October, 2011, has helped over 25,000 users raise money for a variety of purposes like medical expenses, adoption, tuition, mission trips, animal & pet causes, and disaster relief.
Until now, YouCaring's only payment portal for processing donations has been PayPal. YouCaring's Brock Ketcher explains, "With the addition of WePay we hope to give our users more choice and easier ways to receive donations online. Although PayPal has been a safe and productive payment portal for our users, we felt more options for our users are always good." Users of the fundraising website will be able to easily create a WePay account as part of the fundraiser creation process.
One of the main advantages of the new payment portal is that donations are made in real-time. The funds will be immediately available for withdrawal in the fundraiser's WePay account. Previously, users were required to have a pre-existing merchant account in order to get started.
WePay is excited about the new arrangement, too. "The entire WePay team is ecstatic about our partnership with such a trusted and established donation platform. Anyone can be up and running and collecting donations in less than two minutes," says Dominic Toscanelli of WePay.
Ease of use is one of the main reasons for the addition of the new payment portal. WePay will provide YouCaring with a fully compliant payment solution without compromising the fundraising platform's user experience. Fundraisers will be able to start collecting donations quickly, and donors will be able to make payments directly on the website without being redirected to a third-party payment site.
YouCaring, which recently relaunched a new improved version of its fundraising website, continues to be flexible to meet the demands of the growing charity crowdfunding arena. Simplicity, reliability and ease of use, both for those who need to raise funds and for those who wish to give, are essential to the continued growth of the free YouCaring platform, which is funded mostly by donations. As the only truly free fundraising website, YouCaring.com does not charge fundraisers or donors any fees for the use of the site.
