8. Shared access

Rather than one person controlling all online payments, Pitchero allows multiple admin access. This means different Webmasters can access the payment feature and manage the payments they control.

For example:

The senior treasurer can manage - senior membership payments.

The junior treasurer can manage - junior membership payments.

The fundraising officer can manage - online donations.

The retailer manager - can manage the online shop.

The role of collecting and managing payments is now shared.

9. Bank-level safety and security

Pitchero does not store bank details. Instead, we work with FCA-approved payment partners GoCardless and Stripe who process the payment on our behalf.

Both GoCardless and Stripe use military level encryption to ensure all your bank details are secure and safe.

10. Excellent support and best practice

Pitchero has a team of support agents and account managers standing by ready to help your club. We can advise on payment structure, set up and ongoing performance. 

We can also discuss the best package to reduce your payment fees.
