Tilt is usually free. When it’s not free, it’s close to it. This is how our pricing works:
If you’re starting a Tilt, it depends on what you’re organizing.
- Collecting money from a group (i.e. starting a “Collect” Tilt campaign) — it’s free.
So if you’re collecting $500 to get your best friend a gift for her birthday and her mom tosses in $50, you keep it all!
- Selling a product (t-shirts, tickets, etc. via a “Sell Something” Tilt campaign) — we charge:
- 10% of total money raised for every new organizer
If you’re contributing to a Tilt, it depends on how you pay.
- Debit cards — it’s free.
If you’re chipping into a Tilt and contributing $50 — no matter what kind of Tilt it is (“Collect” or “Sell Something”) — you’re only paying $50.
- Credit cards — we add 3% to contributions to account for processing fees.
If you’re chipping in that same $50 to a Tilt with a CC, you’ll pay $51.50.
Now, for the edge case that can cause some major confusion:
What if I’m organizing a ‘Sell Something’ Tilt and a contributor pays with a credit card?
The contributor pays an extra 3% for processing, and we charge 2.5% (if tilt was created before August 2016, otherwise 3% + $0.95 per contribution or 1.5% + $0.10 per contribution in France) of what they contributed (excluding the fee). So if you’re selling a $50 tickets to your event, you will get $48.75 (if the tilt was created before August 2016, otherwise $47.55 or $49.15 in France) no matter what. If the contributor used a CC, they paid $51.50.
So if you’re an organizer, all you need to think about is if you’re organizing a ‘Collect’ or ‘Sell Something’ Tilt.
And if you’re a contributor, all you need to think about is if you’re using a debit card or a credit card.
