We have a Wix website through which we provide information about a small nonprofit charity in Australia. We also have a Square account which has worked well with POS donations and purchases of handicraft items. We would now like to be able to accept donations by using a Square DONATE button and form on the website which enables the donor to fill in relevant credit card information in order to make a donation to our registered charitable fund account.
Thanks for reaching out.
Due to the way Australian finance regulations work, in order to take donations in a compliant manner, the NFP in question would need to be:
- Registered in Australia with an Australian ABN
- Be registered in Australian with the ACNC to take donations
You'd then need an official letter of authority from the organisation that stipulates they're allowing you to take donations on their behalf. While this is not something we can arrange via our community forum, if you would like to speak further about your situation, please get in touch with our support team on 1800 760 137. Lines are open Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm Melbourne time.
