What crowdfunding campaigns does PayPal support?

The three types of crowdfunding modelsthat we support are: personal fundraising, charitable fundraising and reward-based funding.

  • Personal fundraising includes things like raising money for personal or family medical bills, funeral expenses, education, or vet bills.
  • Charitable fundraising includes donation-based campaigns to support organisations such as registered charities, schools and sports teams, or to provide support to other individuals. These campaigns are typically performed via:
    • Monetary donations where all the money goes to the charity or group
    • Merchandise sales where all, or a portion, of the proceeds is given to the charity or group
  • Reward-based funding is usually a crowdfunding campaign that offers related non-monetary rewards in exchange for their contributions.  Common examples include new product development like video games, movies, or new gadgets related to the campaign.
