Fair Pricing: Free Doesn’t Mean Good
When you donate to a private interest, ImRaising applies a 2.9% + 6¢ fee. Donors have the option to cover this fee.
Understandably, this fee has concerned some of you. ChipIn was the standard, and that standard happened to be free.
But free doesn’t mean good. You get what you pay for.
ChipIn was unstable.
You shouldn’t have to worry about downtime. ImRaising is hosted on Amazon Web Services, which is used by Reddit, Netflix and Pinterest.
ChipIn offered no customization.
Your widgets should reflect you. ImRaising lets you personalize content, colors, fonts, pictures, sizes and sounds.
ChipIn updated slowly.
You shouldn’t have to refresh the page. ImRaising updates live, so you see donations and support instantly.
ChipIn didn’t support mobile devices.
Your widgets should work anywhere. ImRaising runs on your mobile device and in your browser.
ChipIn offered no incentives.
You should engage and recognize your donors. ImRaising thanks donors, arranges them by donation level and displays their comments.
ChipIn offered no analytics.
When it comes to donations, you should know the who, what, where, when, why and how. ImRaising helps you track your progress and understand your donors.
ChipIn was unreliable and unfriendly, so why would we clone a service like that?
ImRaising seamlessly integrates streaming and fundraising. We’re stable, flexible and mobile, and if we didn’t apply a fee for private interests, we would end up like ChipIn.
Additionally, we promised to apply zero fees to donations for non-profits, and we’re committed to keeping that promise. In just two weeks, ImRaising widgets have helped raise over $46,000 for Child’s Play Charity. If we didn’t apply a fee for private interests, we couldn’t continue our support.
ImRaising is a brand new service with brand new features, the likes of which the Internet has never seen.
All we ask is that you give us a chance.
