How do I process cash donations?

Follow

Due to declining use, Everydayhero no longer supports DEFT transactions such as; cash, cheque or BPay. Our team have instead invested in popular digital payment channels that enable you to process donations via credit card and PayPal.

If you have collected cash from your donors and would like to add it to your fundraising page, there are two ways you can do this depending on whether each of your donors would like their donation to show up separately with their names next to each donation on your fundraising page.

Option One:

If they DO want to see their individual donations appear on your page, you'll need to:

1. Collect the cash from your friends, deposit it into your bank

2. Use your credit card and press the 'Give Now' button on your fundraising page

3. Donate each amount they have given you separately, entering that friend's contact details into the donation form (you will need to use their name and email address if they want to be able to claim in with the ATO)

4. Once the amount is processed, each of your friends will receive a receipt for their donation to their email

Option Two:

If it doesn't matter to your donors whether they appear as individual donors on your page, then you can:

1. Collect the cash from your friends, deposit it into your bank

2. Use your credit card and press the 'Give Now' button on your fundraising page

3. Donate the whole amount in one transaction via your credit card

4. Once the amount is processed, you will receive one donation receipt to your email address 

Please note: If you choose this option, you may want to add your friends names (with commas in between) into the 'Nickname' box on the donation form so that all their names show up next to the bulk amount. This is a nice way of acknowledging that they've all supported you as they won't receive a receipt in their name.

If you would still like to make a cash donation, it would be best to get in touch with the charity you wish to support directly, who will be best placed to assist you here.
