I'm from outside the UK, can I use JustGiving Crowdfunding?

Sure! As long as you have a verified PayPal account, you can now connect this to your Crowdfunding page and go live straight away. At the moment, JustGiving can't verify bank accounts outside of the UK, so you'll need to select the PayPal option if you live outside of the UK, or have a non-UK bank account.

We recommend that you check with PayPal before getting started that your PayPal account is verified to receive funds, as there are some restrictions for certain countries. 

Just so you know, all funds raised on your page (minus our JG fees) will be paid directly into your PayPal account when you choose to withdraw (or at the end of your campaign), and you'll then be able to withdraw your funds to your bank account.

At the moment, all donations on our Crowdfunding platform are processed in either GBP or USD, which will be added to your PayPal account balance once you withdraw or close your page. At this point, PayPal will convert these funds into your PayPal account default currency.

Anyone donating from abroad will still be able to donate to your page, but this will lodge as an international transaction with their bank. For the time being, we're not able to display donations in any other currency on your Page.

Don't worry if you don't have a PayPal account yet, you can set one up now by heading to www.paypal.com/uk/signup/account. To verify your PayPal account, head here.
