New to the Funraise app? Start here.

Collect in-person, card present donations with the Funraise App. This is an excellent solution for event donations as well as tabling and canvassing efforts. Through a special partnership with PayPal, the Funraise app can function as a POS (point of sale) device - enabling in card present donations.

To get set up, follow these steps...

Apply for PayPal Here account

  1. Apply for a PayPal Here account. You will be asked to log into your PayPal Business account in order to apply for PayPal Here (If you do not have a PayPal business account, you will be prompted to create one first).

Connect PayPal Here to Funraise

  1. Navigate to Settings by clicking your profile icon
  2. Navigate to the Integrations section
  3. Find and click PayPal Here for Funraise App
  4. Toggle ON the PayPal Here for Funraise App integration
  5. A new popup will appear asking you to request a PayPal Here Account. Since, you've already applied for a PayPal Here account, bypass this step by clicking on the "Already have PayPal Here?" link.
  6. Log into your business PayPal Account to complete PayPal Here Authentication.


Purchase a PayPal Card Reader device

You’ll use the Reader to swipe and insert cards for a payment. PayPal offers several Reader device options. We highly recommend PayPal’s Chip and Tap Reader or Chip Card Reader because of the superior battery life and bluetooth connectivity.

Please note: The PayPal Mobile Card Reader does not integrate with the Funraise app. Also, what’s an audio jack?
