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.

Zeffy is a great solution for non profits

Comments: Extremely please with the costs and the options to do different fund raisers.

Pros:

Zeffy does not charge a processing fee to the nonprofit. It asks the donors if they will contribute to the processing. If donor declines, Zeffy still does not charge a processing fee.

Cons:

The settlement of donations of transactions do not happen except weekly or monthly. It can be up to 13 days before receive funds. We did not have to wait that long on the ones we processed but it is possible.

Best online ticketing platform I've used!

5.0 last month New

Comments: The customer service has been exceptional. It's clear that the staff cares and wants to help.

Pros:

Onboarding is quick and easy. You do not need to be super computer savvy to have yourself up and running with ticket sales online.

Cons:

There was a delay before we could ask for donations because we are a US nonprofit and initially it was only offered to organizations with Canadian banks. I still used it for ticketing as I preferred it to other online options. Now I can get donations deposited directly into our bank account..

Zeffy review - Arts society

Comments: Our experience has been fantastic with the software. our not for profit relies on every $ and having a company producing and making available the software at no cost really supports our organization on its mission.

Pros:

its functionality and support to not for profits

Cons:

its functionality and support to not-for-profits, and the possibility to create many forms for different activities for the organization.

Glad we made the switch to Simplyk

Comments: Their platform is easy to set up, and if I have any questions they get back to me within a few minutes. They also never made me feel like my questions were unwise. Plus, anything that the platform did not do in the beginning, it now does. It wasn’t months that I had to wait for them to change either, it was often very quickly.

Pros:

I love that I can embed the ticketing platform into our website. I’m not sure if Eventbrite now does this, but at the time it didn’t. It is very good for us that we don’t have to send our purchasers to a different website. Our ticket purchasers mentioned that it’s great that they’re not redirected to another page to purchase. They’ve also said that the platform is very easy to use. We haven’t had any complaints, and we’ve had a few ticketed events in the past few months.

Cons:

I find that the form that we embed on our website can sometimes be finicky design-wise. Although, I know a lot of it is our website. I'm just picky about how everything looks.
