Changes to Terms
Who Can Use our Service
Anyone can use our Service. Givers Planet does not discriminate against people. However, we only approve and publish campaigns related to our mission and market segment. If you have any questions, please contact us at HereToHelp@GiversPlanet.com. As the email address says, we are here and help and do our best to assist you even if you don’t end up using our Service.
Third Party Services
Givers Planet.com uses L19 Tech to handle our credit card processing. Because their service is critical to our operation, you should take the time and view their website also.
It is free to set up a campaign on Givers Planet.com. We only charge a fee when a donation is made and here is how that happens.
There are two parts to the fee we charge. First is the credit card processing charged by L19 and the financial institutions to handle all financial transactions. The total credit card processing fee is typically 2.75% + $0.45 per transaction. This is a smaller fee than charged by most other donation-based crowdfunding sites. Second is the platform fee, which GiversPlanet charges to keep the website going, lights on in the office, and our staff paid. It is also the same or lower than other donation-based crowdfunding sites. We charge this fee on all donations.
We have setup our Site so that each donor is asked if they would like to cover the fees as part of their donation. A very high percentage of donors choose that option which means that the entire donation goes to the campaign.
One of Givers Planet’s core values is “Giving Back.” Givers Planet will give back up to 10% of our platform fee to worthy causes that move and inspire us because we also want to reflect love by giving.
