Holiday Group Gifts the GENIUS Way!

If you ever find yourself the one in charge of collecting money for a group gift, you know what a hassle it can be! Whether you’re organizing a Christmas gift for the kindergarten teacher or putting together an end-of-season gift for the coach – manually collecting the money is a huge headache. Not only will you spend a ton of time tracking everyone down, remembering who gave you cash or check, and trying to get people the right change… but inevitably you’ll get stuck picking up the remaining balance when some folks never pay! Bah Humbug! It’s enough to make your heart be three sizes too small!
Worried about the cost? SignUpGenius charges just 2.1% of the payment amount plus twenty cents per transaction. When combined with PayPal’s credit card fees, you’ll pay a total of 5% plus fifty cents per transaction. The good news is that studies have shown that the convenience of online payments usually brings a boost in money collected that far outweighs the fees involved – so you can save time while collecting more than you would if you do it manually!
This year give SignUpGenius a try for your group gift and we'll handle the organizing while you kick back with a cup of organic eggnog!
