Can organizations outside of the US use RallyUp?
Learn how to use RallyUp if your organization is located outside of the US.
RallyUp has always allowed any organization to accept donations from credit cards in more than 135 different currencies.
Additionally, if your organization is based outside of the US, you can configure your account to operate entirely in any of 15 major currencies. This means that the amounts raised on your campaigns will display with your home currency symbol, and funds will be deposited in your native currency (without any exchange or foreign transaction fees).
Setting up your organization’s home currency in RallyUp is easy. Simply change the default currency from USD to your currency in your organization settings.
If your organization expects to regularly receive donations in more than one currency (for instance Canadian Dollars and US Dollars), you can link both a US and Canadian bank account to your Stripe account for direct deposit purposes. Doing so allows you to minimize or avoid exchange fees on donations.
Regardless of how you configure your home currency or direct deposit bank accounts, you can still accept donations in any currency.
Note that some countries don’t allow certain campaign types, such as raffles or sweepstakes. So, even though your organization can run these campaigns on RallyUp, you will need to verify compliance with local laws and regulations before doing so.
