Funraise Reader allows you to collect credit card donations in person using a card reader connected to the Funraise platform. A swiped credit card donation will be treated in the same way as your online donations - an email receipt will be sent and donor information will be stored in the Funraise platform. The Funraise Reader card reader allows the user to easily switch between campaign site assignments and donations are captured and posted immediately, allowing your results to be displayed on the site in real time!

*NOTE: Funraise Reader is currently in closed beta. To find out if you qualify for the close beta group, please contact your Customer Success Manager.
