Funding Options & Fees

To create and start a campaign on Sedekah.com is free and easy. All you have to do is register and submit a campaign. We only charge site fees on donations you collect. Although we are a not-for-profit organization, we charge fees to fund our operations.

Funding Options

Two funding options are available: fixed funding and flexible funding.  

Fixed Funding

You will only get the funds collected (less fees) under the Fixed Funding option if the campaigns meet their goals within the campaign time frames (i.e. successful). Otherwise, the funds will be allocated to other similar projects. Site admin will decide at her own discretion on which other project(s) the unused funds will be allocated to. You will be able to see them as lump sum donations by the admin to the selected project(s). This will encourage you to set reasonable goals and work as hard as you can to promote the projects you have posted on Sedekah.com.

Flexible Funding

You will receive all amounts collected (less fees) under the Fixed Funding option at the end of the campaign periods. Although this option sounds more interesting than fixed funding does, we charge a higher fee on flexible funding projects to encourage a balanced mix of funding options on our platform.

You need to raise at least US$50 (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) in a particular campaign to qualify for the funds. All smaller amounts will be allocated by admin to similar projects.

Fees

Site fees varies from 5% to 10% of the funds raised (excluding third party fees) depending on the funding option and outcome of your campaigns. The rate is 5% if the compaigns are successful under the Fixed Funding option. But it will be either 8% or 10% under the Flexible Funding option depending on the outcome of the compaigns, i.e. 8% if unsuccessful and 10% if not. The fees are exclusive of third party charges (by PayPal), i.e. 3% + $0.30 per transaction currently.
