Why does YouCaring recommend WePay for American fundraisers?

On average, U.S. fundraisers using WePay earn 30% more money than those using PayPal.


WePay is optimized for crowdfunding. This means your WePay account won't run into any donation limits and account restrictions when your fundraiser goes viral. We've also found that fundraisers using WePay encounter fewer payment errors and failed transactions.

WePay's payment submission form is much simpler than PayPal's and it works on mobile devices. The screenshots below give a glimpse of what donors will see when they make a payment using WePay vs. PayPal. 



At this time, WePay is only available for fundraisers based in the U.S. or Canada. You'll be eligible to set up a WePay account through YouCaring if you have a valid U.S. Social Security number and U.S Bank account, or if you have a valid Canadian GST/HST number and Canadian bank account. Fundraisers based internationally must use PayPal.
