Common Questions

Can I use Cheddar Up to collect for forms only?

Yes. Many organizers do this. When you create a collection with no items and only a form, your form becomes front and center and is the first thing people see on your collection. In this case, we also change the button-prompt text appropriately (e.g., “pay now” becomes “submit”, etc.). Your reporting also remains tidy, despite not collecting payments.

Can I use Cheddar Up for sign ups?
While Cheddar Up was not created to solve “sign ups”, many organizers use it for this. In particular, our item variations can be used to create robust sign ups.
Can I use Cheddar Up for point of sale?
Yes. We have iOS and Android mobile apps that have a built-in point-of-sale flow that allows you to take in-person payments with or without card readers. Learn more here.
Can I use Cheddar Up to sell things?
Absolutely. We have features including item variations, shipping, discount codes, visitor report, and our gallery view that are made for sellers. Learn more here.
Can I use Cheddar Up for a raffle?
While Cheddar Up has the capabilities to help collect for an online raffle (and many organizations who have sought the proper approvals to do so use the platform in this way), keep in mind that states have exclusive rights and laws that determine what is allowed in terms of gaming in the US, which includes raffles. Prior to using Cheddar Up for any online raffles, it is critical that organizers check with their state’s Attorney General office or local regulatory agency before planning a raffle to determine regulations for nonprofit raffles in your area. Cheddar Up is not responsible for any user who creates a raffle using Cheddar Up without proper legal approval, and if notified of any such illegal raffle collections on our platform, Cheddar Up will be forced to close the collection and refund any associated contributors. Organizers must verify that they are legally allowed to organizer a raffle – and that raffle tickets can be purchased online – prior to creating a raffle collection page. If your organization exists in a state where online raffles are prohibited, you will not be able to use our platform for this use case.
