Which payment methods does Give Lively accept?

Give Lively fundraising technology currently accepts all major credit cards and debit cards, including those stored in Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal, as well as donations made via ACH/direct debit. 

  • To process major credit cards and debit cards, including those stored in Apple Pay and Google Pay, we rely on Stripe, an industry-leading payment processor trusted by thousands of companies and nonprofits. Learn more about Stripe.

IMPORTANT: An activated Stripe account must be connected to Give Lively in order for member nonprofits to process Apple Pay or Google Pay donations and to receive any donations into their bank accounts of all money raised through Give Lively. Learn how to create, activate and connect a Stripe account, how to apply for Stripe’s nonprofit discount, and about the processing fees that Stripe charges

  • PayPal is an optional donation-processing method available to our nonprofit members, but only for one-time donations. In the near future, we will be adding the option to process recurring monthly donations through PayPal. Please take note of the processing fees that PayPal charges.
  • To manage ACH/direct debit, we work with Plaid, a financial technology that enables users to interact with their bank accounts. Learn more about Plaid.
