Watch this site for bad news !

Sadly this site has been where money has been donated to an apparently fraudulent individual using my card ... without my permission ... using Wepay.com. Verfication of transaction seems to be lacking at some point as the other vendors where my card was used identified this ... I shall report how they resolve this issue. Their first communication is not especially professional.

Kind of Sad.

The site is a great idea, but don't do it unless you have really, really good friends and family who don't judge that you have tons of money because you can afford a few cheap things here and there. Trying this taught me two things. 1) Never ask for anything, 2) I'm not worth 5 bucks to most of my family and friends. So be careful and don't expect too much from people.

Misleading...and expensive...but I couldn't have raised the $ otherwise.

The way I read the website when I first signed up was that 5% was the charge kept by gofundme. I thought that was a little high but needed to raise money quick and it seemed ok. I was wondering why the money they were keeping was more than 5% and how they were getting away with it...PayPal fees in addition to their 5%. They should have specified that. I'd probably have been alright with it. Now I just feel deceived. Having trouble getting them to verify my bank account to deposit funds too now as well.

Has a really nice interface and does the job but I thought the 5% fee was pretty high for what it offers
