Do You Need To Raise Money? Use ChipIn.


I was reading through Simon’s Money Notes the other day and noticed a widget (right) that caught my eye. It is a ChipIn widget which he is using to raise funds for a John Chow review.
I went to ChipIn’s site to see what they were all about. It is service that simplifies fundraising. To create a widget you just need to provide information on what you are fundraising for, how much you need to collect (optional), when you need the funds by and how you would like to receive it. You are then provided with an HTML code to paste to your site. If you don’t have a site they will provide you with pages to do your fundraising.

People can contribute via PayPal or any major credit card. Funds contributed are paid out via PayPal, direct deposit or cheque. PayPal seems to be the best option as funds are transferred as they are received.

If you are collecting money for a particular cause using a Buy Me A Beer Plugin/PayPal Donation Button, ChipIn may work a whole lot better. If you are trying to raise or planning on raising funds for something give ChipIn a try.
