3 reasons why organizations choose Anedot as an alternative to PayPal


Fast and friendly service

When you contact our service team, you'll get connected with welcoming, helpful, and kind people.

Our U.S.-based service team does not rest until our customers are satisfied. We go above and beyond to make sure every customer is happy and set up for success.

High-conversion pages built for your needs

PayPal donation pages are basic and mostly unbranded. You typically only get one donation page and no great recurring giving options.

On the other hand, Anedot provides organizations with unlimited high-conversion donation pages. We also have multiple recurring giving options, which makes it easier for supporters to give consistently and for you to raise more money.

Powerful features to boost giving

Free Text to Give, Donor Covers Fees, and Credit Card Updater are all standard with Anedot.

Anedot is built for you and your needs, not just providing generic donation pages.

Anedot is super simple to customize and set up different campaigns. They offer a nonprofit rate and the option for the donor to cover the fees which is a huge win in the nonprofit world!
