Can I raise funds outside of the United States?

Yes, is an international website. Anyone with a valid PayPal account can open a fundraiser.  We offer fundraising in various currencies including US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar, Euro and British Pound.

Organizers based outside of the United States can start fundraisers and collect funds through PayPal depending on their location. Unfortunately, WePay is only available for U.S. fundraisers.

PayPal is available in most countries, but is subject to certain regional restrictions. For example, in some countries PayPal can only be used to send money, not receive it. If you haven't collected money through PayPal before, we recommend that you contact PayPal directly to verify that your PayPal account will be able to receive funds prior to setting up a fundraiser.
