[DEMOFall 09]The recent presidential campaign has highlighted the power of small online donations, and that has created a demand from candidates, non-profit, local governments, and other entities to have a web-platform to raise funds. It’s a good idea, but most can’t build anything like that themselves. That’s where Piryx comes in. The platform sits on top of a payment processing system that allows money to flow in. On top of that, the platform has a CRM system that can track donors and finally, Piryx also handles the integration in social networks to find new donors. Piryx charges between 4% and 4.5% of the transaction amount for its services and there’s nothing to pay to get started.
