Frequently asked questions, answered

Do I have to choose one solution?

No, you can mix and match the different TWINT solutions, and we find that the majority of our customers end up using a mixture of different solutions to meet their needs.

You can create an unlimited number of QR codes and PayLinks, and thanks to our pay-as-you-go model, you only pay a fee for each successful transaction.

What is the link between RaiseNow and TWINT?

RaiseNow and TWINT have an exclusive partnership for club and charity solutions, which means that TWINT technology works seamlessly with the RaiseNow platform.
This means that we can offer you a range of solutions for your club that you won’t find anywhere else, and that are built with the combined knowledge of the leading Swiss payment provider, and the leading Swiss fundraising platform.

Where can I best use QR codes and PayLinks?

On site
At occasions, events or in the clubhouse, you can use the TWINT QR code to collect all kinds of payments securely and cashlessly.

Whether on your website, in emails, WhatsApps, SMS, social media posts or any other digital medium: simply add a PayLink and link directly to the payment or donation page.

Printed materials
In letters, flyers, brochures, notices, postcards, advertisements and much more.

What are the use cases for QR codes and PayLinks?

QR Codes and PayLinks can be used for many different types of payments, e.g. food and drinks at events. Sale of items, collection at concerts, church, etc. Rentals, e.g. tennis court rentals. Entry fees, patronage fees, Club fees, memberships, sponsorships, payment of bills, online donations as well as for donations for live streaming, course fees, ticket sales and many more.

Can I display my TWINT QR code online?

The TWINT QR Code which you create in RaiseNow Hub is not primarily meant to be displayed on a website, or to be sent via email, but only to be printed on marketing material (flyers, posters, etc.).

For online usage you have the possibility to share your payment or donation page by posting the PayLink on your social channels, or by sending it via mail, chat message or SMS.
You can also use this link directly on your website so that your donors or customers can be directly led to your payment page.

When will I receive the money on my bank account?

The payout time is around 3 to 9 days, depending on when the donations have been made. This duration is mainly due to the fact that we first have to receive and process the funds from TWINT.

Each Wednesday the donations for the previous week (Monday to Sunday) are paid out to your bank account. Prior to that you receive an email from RaiseNow with a payout report where you can see the exact gross and net amount and the payment date.

What is the difference between the solutions?

Choose the TWINT QR Pay solution to receive instant payments from customers at the point of sale. You can create your own TWINT QR code with one fixed or one customized amount.

With the TWINT QR Pay Plus solution you can not only receive payments but also collect personal informations about the payer. This solution is ideally suited for your purposes if you want for example to get new members, bookings or event sign-ups.

Last but not least, the TWINT QR Donate solution allows you to raise funds and get the donor's personal information. Here you can additionally give your donors the option to mention if they would like to receive a donation receipt from your organisation.

How much does it cost?

There are no setup or fixed recurring fees for registering your organization in the RaiseNow Hub or for creating and managing your TWINT QR codes.

Once you have chosen the type of QR code that is most suitable for your purpose (you can learn more about it here as well as in our video tutorial), you can create as many QR codes and PayLinks as you wish, knowing that transaction fees are only charged when you receive a successful payment with your QR code or PayLink.

The amount of these fees depends on the type of QR code you use:

  • Receive payments (TWINT QR Pay):
    1.3% per successful transaction.
  • Receive payments and collect payer details (TWINT QR Pay Plus):
    2.5% per successful transaction
  • Receive donations and collect donor details (TWINT QR Donate):
    2.5% per successful transaction

What our customers are saying

RaiseNow TWINT QR makes it really easy to collect online payments. We like the fact that we can quickly and easily generate and personalize as many QR codes as we want for our campaigns. Arianna Scariggi Winterhilfe Switzerland
The QR option is a huge help when it comes to collecting donations. We can now share the code on social media and can run much more spontaneous collection campaigns - even for smaller amounts. A further plus point is that we receive the email addresses of supporters, which is great for our donor database. We in Switzerland and the recipients in Kenya are thrilled!
