One of the most difficult things to do is collect money from people. Of course, if you own a business and have a merchant account, you can easily take payment via credit cards, but if you don’t, you are limited to cash. With Pay It Square, you can collect money from people for almost anything, and you can do it quickly and easily.

You can create payment lists from a set group of people, and you can create general payment setups for things like fundraisers, where you will not be collecting from just a set group of people.

As you would expect, using the service is free, but there are fees attached to processing the payment, which is the case whenever you are going to be processing credit cards. You can choose if the sender of the money pays these fees, or if you absorb the fees for the person paying. You can also select an option where the sender can choose whether they want to pay the fees or pass them on to you. If the person pays with a credit card, the fee is $0.99 per transaction. If they use PayPal, the fee is 2.90 % + $0.30.


When you make the payment page, you can add all kinds of information to let people know what it is about. You can choose a dollar amount, write a description, choose whether the person can choose their own dollar amount, and you can decide if they can pay the amount multiple times by choosing a quantity.


If you need to collect payments for one reason or another, this is a great website to accomplish that goal.

    You got the fees backwards.
    You say: "If the person pays with a credit card, the fee is $0.99 per transaction. If they use PayPal, the fee is 2.90 % + $0.30."

    But on their website they say: "When a Payer pays with their PayPal account balance or bank transfer, the fee is a flat $0.99.
    Example: You are collecting $90 USD from someone. Using PayPal, The payer is charged $90.99. You receive $90. Pay It Square receives $0.99.

    If a Payer uses a Credit or Debit card, an additional fee of 2.9% + $0.60 is charged by PayPal (see international rates here). Plus Pay It Square's $0.99"
