How-to: Allow Donors to Pay by Check

Allow donors to pay for donations and purchases by check.

RallyUp allows you to enable check payments, giving your donors more payment options when they check out. 

Before You Begin

  • Only registered organizations and their advocates can enable check payments. Check payments are not available for those running Corporate Social Responsibility fundraisers.
  • Check payments are limited to 10% of your total amount raised. If you need to collect more than this percentage, contact our customer success team by emailing or by logging into your account and clicking on the purple chat bubble in the bottom right corner of your screen:

How It Works

  1. During checkout, donors can select Check as their desired payment method:

  1. RallyUp emails them a receipt with instructions for where to mail the check:

You'll provide this information in Experience Setup (see below).

  1. When you receive the check, you’ll mark it in RallyUp as Received: How-to: Mark Check Donations as Received.

  • Check payments cannot be used to submit Auction bids or A-thon per-unit pledges.
