Clearpay, a leader in “Buy Now, Pay Later” payments, announced that it is supporting those impacted by COVID-19 through a new charity donation function.
Clearpay has launched a “top-up” program that allows customers using Clearpay to “top-up” their purchases by adding a £1 donation to participating charitable organisations on either the Clearpay website or in-app. Clearpay has also committed to donating more than $200,000 to several COVID-19 related charities around the world, including NHS Charities Together.
Clearpay chose to work with NHS Charities Together to support NHS staff, volunteers and patients affected by COVID-19 across the country.
Ellie Orton, CEO at NHS Charities Together said: “Thank you, Clearpay for making it easy for your customers to support NHS Charities Together. We have been blown away by the support we have received in recent weeks, and every donation helps us support NHS staff, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19 will make a huge difference.”
“We are committed to supporting anyone who might have been affected by COVID-19 in the U.K.,” said Nick Molnar, Co-Founder of Clearpay. “Together, with our Clearpay family, we can make a difference through funding and awareness that will offer relief to the individuals and families who have been affected and the frontline staff and volunteers that are helping them. We are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate, and have launched similar initiatives in the US, Australia and New Zealand.”
To support NHS Charities Together, shoppers simply buy any product via Clearpay and tick the £1 donation box at checkout.
