Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe has stopped charging fees to users. Its new 0% platform fee applies to new campaigns for personal causes. GoFundMe claims that this move makes it “the only major peer-to-peer fundraising platform available in the UK that doesn’t charge a platform fee.”
In announcing the move, the new 0% fee was contrasted with those of crowdfunding platforms JustGiving and Crowdfunder who both charge 5%. That is the fee that GoFundMe applied in its first year in the UK.
Users will still be charged a payment processing fee of 2.9%.
