Join the micro-donation movement
Give customers the chance to make their pennies count for your charity partners. We work with your payment provider to enable Pennies across channels: in-store, online, app, and in emerging payments.
Customers are prompted by the card machine or at online checkout to donate a few pence. It’s an affordable way to give on your own terms, without sharing any of your personal data.
