Contactless Fundraising Badges

Author: Movember
Contactless Fundraising Badges (UK and US only)
 
Asking for donations this Movember just got a whole lot easier. In a world first, we’re trialling contactless fundraising badges – allowing friends and family to make donations with the sweep of a hand.
 
If you have just received a badge from us, here’s how you use it.
 
How to:
 
1. Enable your phone

If you have an latest iPhone (X/XS) it would work automatically, if you have an Android phone you just need to enable NFC (Near-Field-Communication) in settings. For iPhones 7 and above search for and download the ‘Tap and Scan NFC’ app in the App Store.
 
2. Set up your badge

Tap your badge with your phone and follow the on screen set up instructions to activate your badge. (So if you have an Android or latest iPhone you just tap your phone on the badge, or if you have the app, open the app and press ‘Click here to use NFC’. Top tip: It works best when you tap the top of your phone against the badge.

Badge wearers will be sent an email after registering with a link to their account and their fundraising dashboard, so they can see how much they’ve raised through their badge.
 
3. Wear with pride & start collecting donations

Get your friends and family to start donating to your Mo by Apple Pay, PayPal or Card, Google Pay. Simply get them to tap your badge with their NFC enabled phone.
(Same rules apply on compatible phones above).

NB. Contactless fundraising badges are currently only available in the UK and US

Q&A's:

Charges, Gift Aid & Tax receipts
  • Donors will be sent a confirmation receipt after the transaction is complete to their email address. Please note Thyngs takes 2.5% of every donation made, as a transaction fee. (This is not an additional charge to the donor.)
  • If you’re in the UK and you’re a UK taxpayer, you can add Gift Aid at no extra cost. Just click on ‘Add Gift Aid’ after making the donation
Linking to Mo Space on Movember.com
  • If you already have a Mo Space, please use the same email address to set up your badge for donations to be added to it. You will also be asked to set a target, please note this is just the amount you want to raise through your badge.
  • Badge wearers will be sent an email after registering with a link to their account and their fundraising dashboard, so they can see how much they’ve raised on the badge.
  • The amount raised from the badge, will also appear on your Mo Space if you have one, however please note this may take a while to appear. Donations from the badge will be grouped together under ‘badge donations’ and the donor’s name won’t be reflected on the Mo Space. (This is something we hope to solve for next year so please bear with us.)
Compatible devices:
  • All Android phones (just enable NFC in settings)
  • iPhone XS, XS Max, XR
  • iPhone 7 and above with an NFC app
Top tip: It works best when you tap the top of your phone against the badge.
