Online Giving Service / Coronavirus Fundraising Tool

In response to the difficult circumstances our friends and customers are facing, and during a time where face-to-face fundraising cannot take place, we’ve teamed up to provide an online giving platform.

The service has been designed in partnership with Karadoo Finance Ltd (FCA approved) as a fundraising tool for Coronavirus impacted businesses and charities, which supports the collection of online donations safely and securely with full encryption. See how the secure technology behind our contactless payment devices can be used for online and effortless donations.

Gift-Aid can be collected as normal and there is the ability to encourage and receive repeat donations. There are many more features coming very soon.

We believe that everyone should have the ability to raise funds, which is why we’re offering the service with no sign-up or subscription fees. The only cost is a 4.5% transaction charge on the donation amount (no additional flat fee).

The platform is already up and running and open to both new and existing customers, meaning we are accepting signups for same-day access to the service.

Attract Loop

Part of the Donation Station’s key visual design features, the Attract Loop are screensavers purposefully designed to run on a loop. Created by GWD with your input, they use visuals or photography, plus an emotive call to action, to catch the donors interest and lead them towards donation through interactive storytelling.


The entire Donation Station is open to branding, from external display to on-screen logos, photography and your brand look and feel.

Our design support service can adapt visuals and graphics to suit your brand.

Wifi or 4G/5G Data SIM

Where you need it, the Donation Station can be supplied with Data or Wifi connectivity.

If using the device in a remote location or at an event, it’s worth considering the signal strength available – GWD can support you to ensure there’s a smooth running operation on the day.

Safe & Secure

All data is transmitted with full encryption, so you can be sure that all individual donor data is safely used, in accordance with GDPR regulations.

Choice of Donations

Giving choice on where the donor wants their money to be spent empowers them further. The Donation Station asks this question and gives charities freedom to present their causes and activities as separate campaigns.

Gift Aid Up Sell

An integrated Gift Aid function on all Donation Stations helps boost fundraising a further 25%. This tax relief can be claimed from HRMC from any donor that supplies their contact details and makes a declaration, as a UK tax payer. The Donation Station is designed to encourage and secure this additional fundraising income easily, through simple reports that can be downloaded and submitted to HMRC as part of a Gift Aid claim.
