Frequently asked questions

Is Beacon Donate really free?

You won't have to pay any fees to Beacon and you won't have to provide any billing details to use Beacon. You'll need a Stripe, GoCardless, or PayPal account to accept payments, and they will charge you fees.

Is Beacon Donate just a free version of Beacon CRM?

No. They're built on the same technology but Beacon Donate is designed solely for processing online payments and claiming Gift Aid. If you need a CRM you should consider Beacon CRM instead!
