The RoundUp App allows you to automatically donate the change from your credit or debit card transactions. Once you create an account, you do not need to use the app while making a purchase. Just swipe your card as usual.
Frequently Asked Questions
How secure is this app?
The RoundUp app is completely secure as none of the financial information comes to them at all and they do not have access to it. They use Stripe for credit card processing, Plaid for banking connection (this authorizes the “round ups” to take place), and Amazon Web Services for data security. Amazon Web Services is SOC 1, 2 & 3 compliant and the app is PCI level 1 compliant. Stripe is the same payment processor used by Amazon, so if anyone has made a purchase through Amazon, they’ve used Stripe – it’s no different.
Does it show on my statement each month and from who?
Donations made through the app show on a donor’s statement the last day of every month – this is when Stripe deducts it from their credit/debit account. It will show up on their statement as a direct donation to STEP2 and should look something like “$____ donation to STEP2”.
Is it on every charge that I complete on the card(s) I register?
Yes, round ups will occur on every charge made with the registered card. This includes bills that come out of that account, online purchases, etc.
