Judo Payments has announced a partnership with Pennies, the digital charity box, to enable customers to make micro-donations to charity when paying by card in-store, online or by mobile.
The payments platform operated by Judo will now incorporate Pennies’ micro-donations functionality so that consumer can simply, quickly and securely donate as they purchase item.
The app has the built in functionality and security so that customers can make the donation to the charity of their choice within the app, whilst mobile specific fraud prevention technology secures the donation and prevents businesses from fraud or security risks.
Alison Hutchinson, CEO at Pennies, said: “With more people shopping online and through apps we’re focused on ensuring they too are still offered an easy way to give to charity.
“By working with Judo we can provide more retailers and merchants with the digital charity box. Together we can help make a bigger impact on charities and those they help.”
Dennis Jones, CEO at Judo, said, “Pennies has already raised a significant amount of money from consumers’ generosity at the point of payment, but as consumers increasingly move to mobile devices for purchasing goods and services, it’s a key channel for Pennies.
“Our mobile-first approach offers retailers and merchants the opportunity to encourage small but significant acts of generosity without disrupting the customer journey.”
