How much does it cost?
It's free to join and publish unlimited pages using our extensive library of free templates, with no mandatory subscriptions. On our free Standard membership plan, we simply deduct a small fee of 3.9% from donations. We also offer optional membership plans and template products giving you additional benefits such as advanced controls and 0% platform fees. Payment processing fees apply, as determined by Stripe.
How long does it take to get started?
Literally a matter of minutes! The fastest we've seen was one charity who signed up for an account, published a page, and received their first donation in under 15 minutes!
Can we create a page using our own design/artwork?
Yes. Some of our templates allow you to upload your own artwork and images as part of the page design, such as our jigsaw templates and 'Create Your Own' series.
What data will we receive?
Your charity can access all donor data in Reports, and also customise the Marketing Consent section of the checkout form to ensure you're capturing the information you need. If you need to capture any further information, you can add additional questions to the checkout form.
Do you provide any analytics on pages?
Yes. On your Dashboard, you'll see real-time data about how many people are currently viewing your page, plus a graph summarising page views vs donations over a set period of time. We collect UTM tracking data for your analysis, and you can download reports to see which referral links have generated the most views and donations.
Can we add offline donations to a page?
Yes. When you are logged into your Charity Account and viewing your page, you will be able to add offline donations and messages to your page. Read more about offline donations.
Can we change the web address or display the page on our website?
Yes. Before publishing your page, you can customise the web address in Page Settings. If you would prefer to promote your fundraising page using an alternative web address, you will need to set up a redirect link from your preferred address to your Visufund page.
You can also embed your page on your own website and display a live preview of it, by inserting a specially crafted HTML
<iframe> element on your website. Learn more about embedding.
What happens if we run out of objects on our page?
There is no limit to the number of donations you can receive. By default, your page will automatically expand onto a second page when there are no objects left on your first page, ensuring you never run out of available objects. Read more about expanding pages.
Is it possible to edit a donation message?
Yes. After making a donation, donors will receive an email with a link to view and/or edit their message. Depending on the page settings, this link may also be used to change the colour of their object, or add/remove photos attached to their message. Charities can also moderate and edit individual messages in Messages via Page Settings.
