As someone who has helped quite a few candidates and non-profits get off the ground, I’ve found that the most obvious elephant in the room is the ability to gather funds.
I have used Anedot for every statewide non-profit I have worked with as well as small, local races. Here are a few reasons why I chose (and will continue to choose) Anedot.
Every campaign needs the ability to collect donations, this is pretty obvious, but not every campaign knows the best ways to go about doing it. Most campaigns default to Paypal because they know it to be a great way to collect money (and they would be right), but Paypal falls short when compared to a donation specific service.
That’s where Anedot comes in.
Anedot is a simplistic design with cheap rates and easy setup.
Their pricing looks like this: 3.9% + $.30 per transaction. That’s it, no setup fee, no monthly fee. They keep track of all the donations on their secure servers so you don’t have to worry about where the money is being stored.
Here’s what their dashboard looks like.
