You can accept donations easily with:

  • Bank transfers – your customers can pay into Big 4 banks meaning no transfer fees no matter what bank they are using
  • Cards – debit and credit cards from all over the world
  • eWallets – any of the Indonesia’s major ewallets
  • Retail outlet – Alfamart or Indomaret
  • QR codes 

Once a customer pays you and the funds are received, you instantly see the balance on your Xendit dashboard, which you can access from your phone/computer.  You can then withdraw this to any of your bank accounts.

Recurring donations

A study in the US found that charities that accept recurring payments see 30% more donations than charities that don’t use recurring payments.  Xendit is proud to be serving many charities with a recurring payments option.  

If you want to accept recurring payments, create a recurring charge in the “Recurring” tab under “Accept Payments” in your xendit dashboard.  As an example, should your members wish to make contributions on a weekly or monthly basis, the invoices will be generated and sent automatically. You can also choose to set reminders for upcoming contributions for your members as an option.
