Campaign Creation
This article covers some common settings applicable to all types of campaigns. The sections after this will drill down into each type of campaign.

Start and End Date

If you want the campaign to be invisible before a date or after a specific date, you can control it by setting the start and end date values. This only affects visibility, it doesn't have to correspond to when the campaign actually starts or ends.
Another way to change a campaign's visibility is to activate or deactivate the campaign.

Cover Fee Settings

By default PayBee asks your donors to cover the credit card processing fees. This allows the more of the donation to go to your organization. This is optional and can be disabled.
  • Hide option for donor to cover fee - This will remove the option for your donors to cover processing fees.
  • Make default state for cover fee unchecked - By default, the box is checked to cover the processing fees. The donor can uncheck it if they decide they don't want to cover the fees. Enabling this will make the default state of the check box unchecked.
  • Set custom text for cover fee appeal - Add a custom appeal to cover the credit card fees.

E-Mail Settings

  • Optional header in emails to donors - This appears above the message that PayBee automatically sends when a donation is made.
