At Humanitix, our mission has always been to empower event hosts to make a positive impact on the world. We're always looking for innovative ways to support charitable causes and non-profit organisations. That's why we are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking product update that takes fundraising to a whole new level: Humanitix Box Office can now accept donations via Tap-to-Pay!

Revolutionising Fundraising in the Ticketing Industry

Humanitix is proud to be the world's first ticketing platform to offer Tap-to-Pay, phone-to-phone donations as part of our comprehensive event ticketing system. This new feature not only simplifies the donation process but also opens up a world of possibilities for organisations looking to raise funds at their events.

Unleash the Power of Tap-to-Pay Donations

With this key innovation, you can now seamlessly collect donations at a variety of events and fundraisers:

  • Gala Dinner Auctions: Elevate your charity auctions by allowing attendees to make quick and easy donations with a simple tap of their card or phone as soon as the auction is complete. Say goodbye to chasing payment via email and hello to an efficient, cashless fundraising experience.
  • Charity Walks and Runs: Collect funds on the run and make fundraising more accessible and engaging. The Humanitix app can now take instant donations no matter what type of event you are running.
  • Community Events: Foster a sense of community involvement to raise awareness and support for your cause by collecting donations on the spot.
  • Conferences and Seminars: Enhance your conference experience by giving attendees the opportunity to contribute to your organisation's mission before, during or after the event.
