All donations are processed at our lower donation rates. But If you would like to receive the lowest ( 4% vs 4.8%) processing fee for donations, then you should consider upgrading your payment account to Advanced Payment!


You can see what type of payment account you have by navigating to Profile -> Payment Accounts. For more information, see here.

The Advanced Payment account is a newer option for us and offers the following features (Not available on a Quick Start account):


1)  More detailed financial reporting
2)  Lower donation fees for charities of only 4%
3)  A longer descriptor field which helps reduce the incidence of chargebacks
4)  Quicker settlement and payment of American Express transactions (daily versus 2 to 3 days under Quick Start)
5)  Less delay on weekly payments (settlements through Monday instead of the previous Friday)
6)  Direct deposit payments available as monthly, weekly or daily; check payments available weekly only.


If you would like to upgrade to an Advanced Payment account,  go to your Race Dashboard and navigate to Financial -> Payment Setup -> Set Up a New Account (Make sure to check Advanced Payment). For assistance, contact finance@runsignup.com.
