The new pricing will provide a lower processing fee to low-cost events and eliminate the sudden jumps in prices that you see now, while keeping the fees below that of all our major competitors. As always, everything is included. For more information about the upcoming changes, check out our blog post .
Donations always have a flat 4% processing fee.
Fees include platform AND credit card fees.
|$0.01 – $249.99||5.8% + $1|
|$250 – $999.99||4.8% + $1|
|$1,000+||3.9% + $1|
We only make money from processing fees. We keep our fees low by having a self-serve and easy-to-use platform.
Processing fees can be paid by your supporters, absorbed by your nonprofit, or split 50/50. Give donors the option to pay fees to make their donation go further.
Our fees are per cart total, and not per ticket or registration. This saves money when supporters sign up for your events together.
There are no processing fees for free events. Free is free.

RunSignup, doing business as GiveSignup, has achieved the highest level of PCI compliance as evidenced by our Attestation of Compliance. Our volume of transaction processing required us to go through a rigorous certification process, which included onsite reviews and scanning and vulnerability testing with an independent third party Qualified Security Assessor.

RunSignup, doing business as GiveSignup, has taken steps as a company to meet stringent security, banking, VISA and MasterCard processing rules to become an authorized intermediary (Payment Facilitator) between credit card holders (registrants) and event owners. This means that with our Advanced Payment Accounts we never handle your event proceeds. After the credit card transactions are settled for your event, the event proceeds are held in escrow for your benefit with our back end credit card processing company. Funds transfers to you happen accurately and on time by either ACH or check based on the frequency of payment you have requested.
