Understand: Why Free Pricing Raffles and Sweepstakes Have a Ten Entry Minimum

Use entry quantities to increase donations and eliminate platform fees.

Some customers find it unclear why they can’t sell one Raffle or Sweepstakes entry at a time. If you select RallyUp’s Free Pricing option, the system requires at least ten entries per purchase. The most important thing to note is that this requirement doesn’t reduce the funds you raise; it makes it easier to raise more funds. It also allows you to run your Raffles for free.

How Entries Work

One crucial factor to remember is that entries aren’t the same as donations. For example, if someone purchases $25 worth of entries, it won’t affect the amount of money raised whether the donor gets 1 or 100 entries. Your organization will receive the $25 either way.

You can even encourage higher donations by giving discounts for buying more entries, like in this example: 

  • 10 entries for $10
  • 50 entries for $25
  • 150 entries for $50

Fundraise for Free

RallyUp requires you to offer at least ten entries per price level because the Free Pricing option allows donors to leave a tip to help cover platform fees. If the fundraiser is a Raffle or Sweepstakes, the system offers donors a few extra entries to encourage them to leave a tip. The 10-entry minimum allows our system to provide at least one extra entry per tip.

Good to Know

  • See our Pricing Page to learn more about your pricing options. If you create a Raffle or Sweepstakes and pay a Platform Fee, there is no entry minimum.
  • Ensure that your entry levels are all accurate before publishing your Experience. Once a donor purchases a specific entry level, you can’t alter or delete that entry level in any way, even if you refund all purchases for that entry level.
