Help request. Alternatives to PayPal (in the UK)
Hello - we are a non-profit membership organisation in the UK. We currently use PayPal for membership payments and are looking at alternatives to reduce fees paid to PayPal. What would anyone suggest or recommend? This is a new area for me! Thank you in advance. Nicola, Office Manager.

Hello Nichola, I work for a company in the UK called Nochex. We help membership organisations like yours to accept card payments. We work with the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Caring For Society. If you would be interested in our service, please let me know.

Hello, I'm not sure of the fee structure in the UK but in the States, upon proof, non-profit rates are 2.2% + $.30.
The biggest complaint I have with Paypal is the difficulty changing the account holders name. Although it's a business account with our non-profit name, we change office holders, including treasurer, every two years. From what I can tell the only option is to close and re-open an account with the new treasurers name (and social security number).
