Setting up your Revv account

You can sign up for your Revv account anytime by going here. Your Revv account is free to use -- only pay for the donations you process through the platform.

Create a user

Fill in your name and email, and enter a password for your account. Your password must be at least 8 characters and contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number and one special symbol.

Click Sign up

Your user has been successfully created. Having problems? It's probably because you've already created a username -- possibly while making a donation previously. Email us at hello@revv.co and we'll reset it for you.

Create an organization

To create an organization, enter your organization name. This name will appear on public-facing communications like receipts and donor profiles.

Select the organization type. This will set certain default settings for your organization. For example, if your organization is political, this will set a default maximum amount for your donations and add employer fields to your forms.

Enter your organization slug. This is the unique identifier for your organization. It also sets up default subdomain for your organization's landing pages. You can always customize your subdomain using your own domain later in your organization's settings.

Click create organization. Your organization has been set up and is awaiting approval.

Revv Approval

Revv reviews all new organizations to make sure they are legitimate and that they comply with our terms of use. You can continue to get everything set up for your organization, but you will not be able to publish a live page until your organization has been approved by a member of Revv's team. 

If you're in a hurry, email us at hello@revv.co and we'll expedite your organization's approval process.

Connect Stripe

In order to accept donations, you will need to connect your Stripe account to Revv. For instructions on how to connect Stripe, click here.

Set up your custom subdomain (optional)

Revv will create pages on a subdomain of revv.co using the slug you entered. For example, if you entered "example" as your organization's slug, Revv will publish all of your landing pages at example.revv.co by default.

You can customize this so that your pages live on a subdomain of your own domain. For example, something like example.yourdomain.com. For instructions on how to set up a custom subdomain, click here.

Publish a page

To accept payments, you'll need to publish a page. Revv hosts and secures all your landing pages for you. You can edit and build pages using the Pages tool.

Note that you can't publish a page until Revv has approved your account and Stripe is connected.
