What is CloudPay

Cloudpay Merchants Donate 3% Of Your Purchase To The NonProfit You Designate!

Mary Apra from Windmill Cafe

CloudPay is a new local community-building partnership between local merchants and local nonprofits. When you pay at participating local merchants using CloudPay, the merchant no longer has to pay Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express transaction fees, so they donate them to your favorite nonprofit instead!

CloudPay enables you to safely and securely link your mobile phone to a checking account or credit card.  Give your mobile phone number to the clerk, and authorize payment when prompted via a text message.  That’s it. You will receive a text message confirming the amount of the donation after each purchase.

  • After set-up, it is easy and actually fun to use!
  • It’s private – CloudPay doesn’t sell or share any of your personal information
  • It’s secure – in fact, it’s more secure than your bank!
  • You’re protected with 100% fraud protection (just like your credit card)

CloudPay promises to be a Win-Win, as members help local merchants thrive, and participating businesses help the local nonprofits accomplish their goals with a new stream of sustainable funding. So please, Join CloudPay and start earning donations today! And please, don’t forget to thank the local businesses for joining together to support local nonprofits!

CloudPay is a CA Benefit Corporation, based in Santa Cruz, CA.
