Recently, TechSoup added the new PayAnywhere donation program to its lineup, providing another option for mobile payment processing services to eligible nonprofit organizations and public libraries throughout the U.S.

When a nonprofit selects PayAnywhere for use at a fundraising event, they instantly add convenience and lessen their work load.

PayAnywhere helps put the "fun" in fundraising by empowering fundraising staff to accept credit card payments for any kind of product or service, purchases from live and silent auctions, day-of-the-event ticket sales, or raffle ticket sales, right from their smartphones or tablets.

With PayAnywhere's immediate transaction reporting, fundraising staff are able to see how much they raise at an event in real time with just a few taps, saving them a ton of time tallying totals.

Fundraiser attendees who make purchases and donations can receive a branded email receipt at the close of their transaction that contains important event and contact information, along with an itemized list of their purchases for tax purposes.

Best of all, the easy-to-use, speedy app allows attendees to pay and get back to the festivities without worrying if their card information is safe and secure, because PayAnywhere meets PCI-compliance standards.
