There is no limit to the number of campaigns you can create! Make a million! Or even a million and one!

9. How do I decide on what my processing fee percent should be set to on campaigns?

Each campaign you create gives you the ability to choose from a different processing fee percentage to cover all card transactions. When a Charity is first created the default percentage is set to 3%, which will cover most if not all credit card rates. You are welcome to increase the rate to 5%, or decrease it as low as 2% depending on your preference.  If you need help deciding, feel free to give us a call!

To deactivate or edit a user you will go to your “Manage users” tab under account on your Savvy dashboard page. From this section you are able to deactivate and edit user information for your Savvy account.

12. A donor needs to be refunded, how do I do that?

Sometimes mistakes happen, and you may need to process a refund from time to time. To issue a refund you will go to your “Donation Reports” tab. From here you can use the filters option to find the donor, and you will be able to refund the donor from the “Refund” action button located to the left of the donor´s name.

13. How long does it take to receive my deposits in my account?
