The Smarter way to accept Donations!
Donation Point Tap (‘DPT’) by Quest Payment Systems offers charities and Not for Profits the opportunity to improve their fundraising results by adopting contactless payment technology. With consumers carrying less cash than ever before, DPT makes it easy to donate by tapping a contactless credit or debit card, smartphone or wearable.

How Donation Point Tap works
How to make the most of Donation Point Tap
DPT can be used in a fixed location such as a retail store or local café. Alternatively, go mobile for street appeals, events, or gala's. Either way, DPT can adapt to your fundraising needs.
Leverage your Networks / Partners
DPT is a self-service device suited for use in a vast array of premises. DPT takes up little space on a counter, ideally located near a point of purchase. Your network of businesses that support your charity can help you collect donations with virtually no disruption to their business.
If your retailer/network is passionate about your cause, you will likely have greater success as their staff will be willing to help promote the prospect of making a donation.
Place your DPT in a high-traffic area
Being small and portable allows DPT to be strategically located in high traffic areas, maximising visibility and donations. Locations like restaurants, shops, cafes, supermarkets, petrol stations, or other charity partners are great locations for your DPT.
With the DPT floor stand accessory, you can also collect donations beside a counter to give it more separation and visibility from cluttered areas.
Take your DPT mobile
With both Wi-Fi and cellular network coverage, DPT can be used almost anywhere there is adequate network coverage as the terminal requires connection to the internet to process payments.
If you have a special event, you can remove the DPT from its normal location in the countertop stand or floor stand. When the event is over, simply return the DPT to your fixed location. This gives great flexibility.
Place your DPT where people will be at all hours
With the self-serve nature of the DPT, it lends itself to being able to take donations at any time. Therefore, placing it in places like a restaurant, petrol station, or supermarket allows you to be collecting donations outside of your normal business/collection hours, increasing the times you can take donations. It is best to seek locations with long trading hours and high foot traffic.
Track your donations in real time
Track your donations in real-time through the easy-to-use online portal where you can monitor the effectiveness of your DPT. This enables you to monitor the effectiveness of a location and if donations are low, then move the DPT to a more suitable location.
Marketing and Promotion
As well as promoting the opportunity to donate, take the opportunity to raise awareness of your cause/ campaign/ message/ website with the promotional banner integrated into the countertop and floor stand. For effective results, your message should be clear and concise and immediately show your prospective donor what they are donating for.
Vary the pre-set amounts
A DPT can be configured to display one or four pre-set donation amounts. In addition, a custom amount can be inputted by the Donor, up to $99.00. The easy-to-use online portal allows you to change the pre-set donation amounts, as well as view reports. Reports help to determine the best location, best preset amounts, to make sure you are making the most of your fundraising.
If you are placing a DPT in a retailer with a low average transaction value, then you should keep at least one donation amount low, as it should be relative to the transaction value. Alternatively, if the retail outlet has high value products, then perhaps consider raising the donation amounts accordingly. The Donation Point system is very flexible, so experiment to see what works.
