Zeffy absolutely works... and well.

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: In order to minimize event and donations expense, this worked wonderfully! Highly recommend Zeffy.

Pros:

Our org and this event team is/was VERY grateful to retain all the dollars "donated" to this cause and event via the Zeffy platform. Altho' not as robust with features, bell/whistles, as eventbrite, didn't matter - and it was more than sufficient at accomplishing the goal of no added fees or deductions.

Cons:

Not apples to apples: Eventbrite is more robust - but expensive and cumbersome, overbearing ...

Great product that saves money

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Using Simplyk has been a great experience, especially in saving us money but also in providing us with a great platform to do our fundraising. Their customer service team is one of the best I've ever dealt with, and I really appreciate having an account manager I can go to for assistance who is very quick to respond and do all they can to help us.

Pros:

The biggest selling feature of Simplyk for non-profits is that they cover the costs of all credit card transaction fees, which saves us a lot of money. On the user end, it's a very clean-looking website, and fairly simple to use. On the back end, setting up ticket pages and campaigns is straightforward and pulling reports is not very complicated. Integrating with Stripe was quick and easy - our accountant loves it!

Cons:

Since Simplyk seems to be a newer software, it is still missing some features that would be great to have and it's sometimes not as robust as we would like. It does not allow users (for us, people who are fundraising on our behalf) to be able to send emails to their sponsors in order to thank them for their donations. It would be nice to have more administrator control as well - there are some things I need to email to Simplyk team to do for me because I can't do them myself.

Thank you so much for your great review! We are always working on adding new features and are going to be adding some of the features you mentioned very soon. Thanks again, the Simplyk team

Simple, Cost-Effective Fundraising Tool

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: A simple, easy to set-up & easy to use fundraising tool that saves on costs. If you have a smaller organization looking for a site to use for donations, peer-to-peer campaigns, etc this is a great option to look at.

Pros:

No cost, no transaction fees... can't beat that

Cons:

It is not a donor database so it does not have the ability for reporting, etc.

Zeffy is a superb option for small non-profit organizations!

Comments: Zeffy has made it possible for our small non profit retreat ministry to stay affordable for our participants.

Pros:

I love the ease of set up to accept donations, registrations and payments for our retreats. The fact that there are no fees allows us to keep our cost low while our financially secure participants can make donations to cover any fees Zeffy incurs.

Cons:

There have been no cons I've experienced.
