What is Donor Cover Charge or DCC?

With DCC, your donors have an option to cover the additional transaction/processing fees associated with their gift, ensuring that 100% of their donation goes towards supporting the institution's cause.

DCC is a voluntary option; your donors can choose whether to cover the transaction fees or not by checking on DCC in the pre-payment form.

Changes/Setup the admins should be aware of 👇

  • Admins can add transaction fees for the payment gateways on the platform.

  • In calculating the amount required to cover charges, both Almabase and Payment Gateway charges are added together.

  • Donors that pay for the transaction fees have a heart symbol next to their gift amount on the gifts tab.

  • The Gift Export has a separate column identifying which donor has paid for the transaction/processing fees.
