Raise more by reducing the cost of fundraising! 

BOPP is a bank to bank platform that makes it easier and cheaper for you to collect payments and raise funds for your PTA, association, or school.

Payment providers like Paypal and Stripe have high transaction fees, which means less money for your PTA and school. With BOPP, high fees are a thing of the past. 

Whether it's for entrance fees or stall transactions for Summer or Xmas fetes or tickets for the Big PTA Quiz, school gate collections, or your PTA raffles, with BOPP, taking payments just got easier.

How does it work? 

You can easily create a QR code or secure Paylink within the app, which can then be either be scanned or clicked by the parent. This will automatically open their mobile banking app, where they will see the payment details and be able to authorise the transaction, all from the security of their own bank app. 

Payment requests are flexible so you can choose to set a fixed amount or you can leave it to the payer to decide.

Plus, you'll have a reference and the payer's details for easy reconciliation.

BOPP - The future of cashless and cardless donations

When you're fundraising, taking cash is a hassle and card transactions can be expensive. BOPP is the faster, easier and cheaper way to accept donations.

Boost your chances of donations from the general public by including a donation request QR code on your promotional event posters & flyers or add secure Paylinks to your social media posts, emails, newsletters, text messages and web pages to ask for donations.

    Testimonials 

    "We trialled BOPP in September for a large event we hosted to begin our new school year. It was such a success so we have continued to use it for our fundraising activities this first half term and it has been so easy! Feedback from our school community has been so positive, everyone who uses it can't believe how easy it is! We have used it on all of our posters and communications advertising our Year Group Tea Towels, Christmas Cards and Gifts, our upcoming Pumpkin Carving Competition and we have plenty more coming up! We use the QR code on posters and the paylink in our written communications. We love how the money literally just goes straight into our bank account which is going to be really important now that our bank has added transaction fees to cash deposits - we need to make sure we don't lose any funds that should be going straight to our school. Other payment methods such as PayPal incur much higher fees per transaction. We went for the low pay monthly fee which means we don't get charged on individual transactions which works out much cheaper. The team at BOPP have been really helpful when we had any questions or queries regarding using the app, any fixes were promptly made and they really went out of their way to help. I have a fab phone relationship now with the lovely Sunjay who is on hand immediately should I have any questions or problems (but these are not very often now as the app works beautifully!). He called me today to let me know some improvements to the next version of the app, which is only going to make things even better! No regrets, BOPP is definitely the best move we have made as a PTA." Kathryn - Treasurer, Friends of Stoughton Infant School 

    "Our PTA was searching for a new, better payment method since so many people were telling us they don't carry cash anymore. We came across Bopp through the Parentkind newsletter and it looked really interesting. After some consideration we decided to give it a try and I think it's one of the best things we have done for our fundraising efforts. One of our first events using it was a basic dress down day. We used the paylink in our emails to our families and on our social media and we put printed QR codes at each drop off point. The event brought in 5 times what it usually does with many parents saying how easy it was to pay either in advance using the paylink or at the classroom door using QR code on their phone. The support from the company is fantastic. There is always help available for even the most simple of questions. We will definitely continue to use Bopp for our fundraising events in the future." Paula Melville - Chair, Parents at Wheatfields School
