How to create a new campaign, Part 2: "Who gets the money? A Person"

If you haven't started creating your campaign yet, you're in the wrong place. Click here to get started - Don't worry, you'll arrive back on this page in a few minutes. 


✩ Who gets the money?

A Person - Select this if you're raising money for yourself or someone you know for personal reasons (medical bills, memorials, honeymoon costs, etc.).


Simply enter your email address in the How contributors can pay section to receive funds.

US and Canadian users primarily receive funds via WePay, and all users outside those two countries receive funds via PayPal.

Click Save & continue at the bottom when you're done, and your campaign will be ready to launch! 

*Please note: To accept payments with WePay, you must be 18 years or older and also a resident of the US or Canada, but anyone in the world can pay you. If you don't meet the requirements, you can use PayPal instead by clicking More, then clicking Use PayPal.
