Donations and participation fees
With the help of a PollUnit wallet you can you can collect donations and raise participation fees. This not only helps to cover the costs of organizing your events, but also allows you to earn money or collect for a good cause.
Manage your digital wallets
In the »My Wallets« section, you can create new PollUnit wallets and edit and delete existing wallets. Each wallet can be linked to a different Stripe account, but you can also create wallets in different currencies. A PollUnit wallet can be specified as a recipient in a PollUnit and you can collect participation fees or donations that way. When you open a wallet, you will see a list of your earnings.
Link Stripe with PollUnit
PollUnit does not process fees and donations itself. We use Stripe, an online payment processing company, to accept and manage payments. The receiving account is your Stripe account. So you need to register or already be registered with Stripe.
You can then link your Stripe account to PollUnit by clicking on »Create Wallet«. To do this, follow the instructions in the forms.
Include PollUnit wallet
Once a wallet has been created, you can select it in the »Advanced« step when creating a PollUnit. You can request voluntary donations or mandatory participation fees.
If you select »Donation«, you can specify a minimum amount. This amount can be increased by participants, but can also be skipped completely. A fee is a fixed amount that has to be paid, e.g. to upload a picture to your photo contest.
All payments made can be viewed and managed by you in your Stripe account. There it is also possible to arrange refunds.
