We've just released a new feature on to save you time and to help you get those fantastic perks to your donors even quicker.

After talking to a number of campaigners, we realised pretty quickly that while getting hundreds of donors is great, it becomes not-so-great when you have to collect hundreds of postal addresses to deliver them perks.

Some campaigners told us they spent several days just following up with people to make sure they had the right details.

So, we decided to find a way to make that whole process even simpler for you. Now, in your campaign backend, you can choose to collect addresses from your donors.


Collect addresses from your donors

We've even put in some smart internationalisation features to make sure addresses format correctly for your international donors.

This feature is now available to all our campaigners, and it's up to you to decide whether or not you want to turn it on.


Some common questions


1. Will I be forced to collect addresses?

Definitely not. Our default setting is not to collect addresses, and that will remain so. If you don't collect addresses, everything on the payment form will look exactly like it does right now.


2. I'm running a political fundraiser and need to collect addresses for compliance reasons. Can I use this feature?

Yep. This is definitely the way to do it if you need to meet your compliance requirements.


3. Should I collect addresses just to put into our CRM?

We are against collecting information that you don't really need or intend on using. We think you should only collect addresses if there's a good, clear reason to do so.
