We are proud to announce a new feature on the Donorhut platform: Addons. Addons are currently one-time purchases for your Donorhut account that enrich your platform experience. Currently we only have one addon available for purchase which is the fee reduction addon, in the future we are planning to add many more, some of which are going to be free.

Introducing: The fee reduction addon

The fee reduction addon enables you to decrease your Donorhut platform fee down to 1.0% from the standard 2.1%. Fee reductions are available in 0.1% increments for $20 each and apply globally across your account to all present and future campaigns. You can purchase a fee reduction as many times as you wish until you reach the minimum platform fee of 1.0%. Once purchased the fee reduction is instantly applied to your account and all future donations will benefit from the reduced platform fee.

What is the future for addons?

We have many ideas in the mix but one addon we are planning to develop is the white-labeling of your fundraising, campaign and crowdfunding pages. The white-labeling addon is planned to include:

  • Custom domains: Your campaigns will be configured for: https://donate.example.com or any other sub-domain of your choice. This will provide a seamless transition from your organizations web presence to your campaign pages. Included within the addon is an SSL certificate for your sub-domain and DNS zone hosting.
  • Branded campaigns: Your public facing campaign will be free of any Donorhut branding and instead branded (from head to toe) with your organizations brand.

Will there ever be free addons?

Yes! We are currently exploring the idea of free addons that can be enabled or disabled at discretion of the account holder.

We thrive on feedback and we would really appreciate your thoughts on our new addons addition to the Donorhut platform. If you have some feedback for us, please send it our way at: donorhut.com/contact.

With online fundraising, your organization can reach out to more potential donors than with traditional fundraising. However, most fundraising websites want to keep a large percentage (5% to 7%) of the raised donations on top of the credit card processing fees. This is usually challenging for small, non-profit organizations as steep platform fees end up unnecessarily inflating the fundraising expense. Perhaps, this might make you consider whether you are overpaying for your online fundraising.
