We apply a fee which is deducted from each transaction:
For the charity to receive your donations securely by PayPal a fee of 3.4% + £0.20 to transfer the funds applies.
Your charity can claim 25p per £1 in Gift Aid on your donation.
Use your own company artwork as the e-card:

We charge nothing to our charity partners:
• A new income stream with donations in lieu of cards
• Raise funds for occasions year round
• Add to your Christmas fundraising efforts
If your charity has activated our Gift Aid feature, after you make your donation you will be presented with the option to provide your details to process Gift Aid.
Your charity can then claim 25p Gift Aid on every £1 donated, meaning that they can receive over 100% of your original amount given.
Your information is only accessible by your charity via a secure download. We're a light-hearted alternative to greeting cards, but we take data protection very seriously.
Processing times and what you are charged
DontSendMeACard makes each payment instantly. Meaning that charities receive donations right away.
You are never charged any additional amounts. You simply donate the amount that you want to and that's all that you will be charged.
What we do for our 5% fee
DontSendMeACard is a collaboration between graphic design and web development agencies Future Imaging and Web Engineer, both based in Exeter, Devon.
We’ve spent considerable time and resources building a top notch web application that offers an easy-to-use interface, with a secure payment gateway, and a host of tools for promoting and facilitating online giving.
We’re excited to be able to offer a solid platform that users can easily send e-cards and donate on special occasions in replacement of greeting cards. Running the website has overheads. Including:
- Building, continually refining, and monitoring the website
- Creating new features for users, charities and companies to raise funds with
- Customer support
We also have marketing and advertising costs.
Lastly we are continually building relationships with new charities and organisations, and developing website content including videos, blog posts, and imagery to communicate what it is and how it can be used. All of this involves office overhead.
DontSendMeACard is a social enterprise.
Quite simply, we can send e-cards and give what greeting cards and postage cost to causes that really need it.
DontSendMeACard is supported by The Dartington Hall Trust and Plymouth University.
