GiveBig + Swiper1: Automatic Posting of Donations to your Organization’s Give Big Page using your Smart Phone

If your organization is participating in a Giving Day or otherwise using Click & Pledge’s GiveBig Platform, you can accept donations through the Swiper1 App on your smart phone and have them automatically added to your organization’s profile page and donation totals.

To do this you will need to:
  1. Identify your Give Big platform’s Campaign name
  2. Add the Give Big Campaign name to your Swiper1 settings
  3. Run the Transaction

Best Practice: We recommend that you do a small test donation, like $1, long before your Giving Day to make sure you have everything set up properly.
