Zettle app

Connect your Zettle account to automatically add donations to your Beacon account

Updated over a week ago

Zettle (formerly iZettle) is a payments solution that's most commonly used for taking payments in person, or "point of sale" (POS).

For nonprofits, Zettle is a popular solution for:

  1. Taking contactless donations

  2. In-store payments (if you run a shop)



Automatic data entry

With the Zettle app for Beacon, these payments are automatically added into your Beacon database:

Each payment added will be saved into Beacon, complete with full context about the payment that happened in Zettle:

There's no need for any manual data entry or CSV imports, so you can focus on raising more funds instead of data wrangling!

Real-time (almost!)

Zettle payments flow into your Beacon database within 5 minutes of the transaction occurring.

Stored the way you want

You can customise the "fixed data" that you'd like to set on payments imported. This helps you ensure that data is categorised in the right way for your filters & reporting!

You can set up the Zettle app for Beacon within minutes.

  1. Go to Apps > Directory, and click Install on the Zettle app.
