Social Entrepreneur


Charity Checkout is an online payment processing company that is also a social enterprise.

We specialise in supporting small charities that find the costs or technical requirements of traditional payment processing prohibitive. The industry status quo is to charge smaller organisations more to compensate for their low transaction volume. We take the opposite approach offering discounts for smaller charities to ensure our payment service is accessible to all good causes.

The company charges a transaction fee of 2.43% on all donations with an annual subscription from £99 per year for the smallest of charities. According to Charity Checkout, its average donation value is £56.61 and it has processed almost 40,000 donations so far, we've raised over £2 million since we launched in 2012.
