In the world of payments and crowdfunding, you can expect to encounter two types of fees: a platform fee, and a credit card fee.
At IsraelGives we don't charge platform fee, and as a result we're the least expensive payment processor and crowdfunding platform in Israel. This is possible because instead of asking you to pay fees, we invite the donor to leave us a tip to support our activities.
If you choose to remove the tip mechanism from the campaign or donation form, we will charge you a platform fee of 2.9%. However, you can add to the donation form the Cover my Fee feature, which invites donors to increase their donation to cover our platform fee (and your credit card fee). 55% of donors do.
Compare us to other leading platforms in Israel and the value that you receive with IsraelGives is clear.

Credit card fees
Depending on the payment processor that you selected, the credit card company will charge you a fee. If you process using IsraelGives Payments, you'll pay the least expensive credit card fees in Israel.
Transaction and receipting fees
On every donation there is a ₪1.20 transaction fee.
E-receipting: If you want us to issue a Sec. 46 PDF e-receipt in your name, this costs ₪0.70 per receipt. This is optional.
So, in summary, with IsraelGives most charities pay the following fees:
There is a ₪10 fee for every refund that we process.
For every wire transfer we make to you, a ₪5 fee will apply.
If you subscribe to a paid membership plan, a monthly membership fee will apply.
How are these fees collected?
Transaction-related fees are deducted from the donation before it's paid out to you. Monthly fees are paid through direct debit (hora'at keva).
