Stripe for Charities & Non-profits

Give A Little connects to Stripe for world class, innovative payment processing

The Give A Little and Stripe partnership provides charities with high quality, low cost, innovative ways to collect cashless donations via contactless, Chip + PIN, online and QR codes. 

We’ve launched a range of highly requested contactless features: offline donations, monthly recurring donations, and single amount Give & Go. Each of these features is designed to increase donation revenues.

We’re also excited to announce the market leading low transaction fee of 1.58% (UK) through an easy payment processing/ acquirer sign up with Stripe via Give A Little’. This furthers Give A Little’s mission to drive down the cost of cashless donation technology. 

We’re making Tap on Phone available for trial. This allows you to collect contactless donations without the need for a separate card reader using just your Android smartphone.

And the new Stripe S700 handheld device is available to be trialed. It’s a portable contactless donation box with a fabulous 5.5" colour touchscreen. 

Please do get in touch at: if you wish to trial either of these.

Our ecosystem of device partners including CollecTin and Payaz support Stripe card readers. Contact us to find out more.

Or you can use our DIY (Do-It-Yourself) approach to create your own Give A Little point of donation just with an Android tablet or smartphone and a Stripe WisePad 3 card reader. To place orders for the WisePad 3 card reader please contact us at

Using Stripe with Give A Little

Seamlessly integrates with Give A Little

There is no limit to the number of card readers that can be connected with your Give A Little account

Offline donations

You can keep collecting when a fixed donation station/portable contactless donation box has no data coverage 

Recurring monthly donations

Easy sign up of donors to monthly recurring donations via fixed donation stations and portable contactless donation boxes

Give & Go

A donor can quickly tap to donate a default amount, there’s no need to select anything and the machine resets rapidly for the next donor. This is the fastest way to process a queue of donors.

Give A Little Give & Go is for in-person donations and is a feature of Give A Little app campaigns. It displays a single donation amount to the donor on the campaign screen while the card reader stays primed ready to accept a donation payment. In this way the donor can very quickly tap their payment card to donate the default amount without needing to interact with the screen. This is a very rapid way of dealing with queues and for locations where people are transiting through quickly, not wanting to stop for long to donate (Note: requires a Stripe WisePad 3 card reader)

Offline donations will remain stored on the Give A Little app until it is uninstalled or your device storage is cleared. However, the longer you wait to get online and sync your offline donations the more likely it is they will be declined. We recommend connecting your device to the internet once a day to submit and process any offline donations.

The process a donor takes to make a recurring contactless donation is described in steps here:

  1. Donor selects 'monthly' on Give A Little fundraising campaign screen

  2. Donor selects amount they would like to donate monthly

  3. Donor enters email address

  4. Donor tap card or inserts card (Chip + PIN)

  5. Donor receives email receipt from Give A Little confirming they have started a monthly recurring donation. The email receipt includes a link for the donor to manage their recurring donation - this allows them to:

  6. Cease donations

  7. Change the day of the month

  8. Change the amount

  9. Update the payment card

  10. Recurring donation is set up and processed each month on the same day (or the last day of the month)

  11. Donor can also contact if they would like to change or cancel their donation

Give A Little harnesses the Stripe Tap to Pay on Android (TTPA) service to accept in-person contactless payments with compatible NFC-equipped Android devices. Please check the Stripe recommended compatible devices here:
