JustGiving launches contactless donation app

contactless_paymentsJustGiving has launched a new contactless payment app for charities and is looking for partners to test it. The TapDonate app has been developed along with specialist blood cancer charity Bloodwise and will help charities to capitalise on the growing use of contactless payments.

Once fully developed, the app can be downloaded to a charity device, such as an iPhone or tablet, and programmed with a charity’s branded content. It can also be connected to a PayPal Here card reader to enable a cashless donation to be processed in seconds, according to JustGiving.
JustGiving says it’s on the hunt for a few enthusiastic charities to help them experiment with this new technology in a series of trials.

“People are increasingly opting for card payments, rather than carrying cash, and so we want to create an app that will enable supporters to give in the way that suits them,” said Jonathan Waddingham, senior product manager at JustGiving. “In doing so, JustGiving is creating equal opportunities for charities of all sizes to access new types of giving technology.”

Charities can apply to participate in the trial by following this link. The trial will take place in the new year after which JustGiving will share the results with its charity partners.
