Step 1: Choose your amount
To begin, enter the amount you would like each person to pay. If you would like payers to cover the collection processing fees, click on the checkbox below the amount field.
If you leave this field empty, your collection will be for an open amount. Your payer will choose how much they would like to contribute.
Step 2: Create a collection name
This name will allow you to identify the purpose or event that you are collecting payments for.
tip: Be sure to choose a clear and descriptive name that will be easily recognizable to your payers.
Step 3: Share your collection link
Once you have entered the collection amount and created a name, you can share your collection link with your contacts 🎉
Here are a few ways to share your collection link:
1. Copy n' paste:
You can copy the generated collection link and paste it into your preferred communication channel, such as email, messaging apps, or social media.
2. Crowded email:
If you’ve uploaded contacts to Crowded, you can use our built-in email feature to send the link to your payers.
Simply select the contacts you wish to notify, compose your message, and include the collection link within the email body.
tip: If you only want to send to a certain subsection of your group, use tags to organize your contacts, and only send to tagged contacts.
3. QR code
Share your collection link with a QR code. Download or screenshot the QR code and share with your payers.
tip: Place the QR code on a printed poster or card to allow sharing of your link offline
Be sure to provide clear instructions to your payers regarding the purpose of the collection, the payment amount, and any additional details they may need to know to avoid confusion.
That’s it! You have successfully created your Crowded collection link and learned how to share it with your contacts.
Now you can easily collect payments from your group online 💸
