Online money pot Leetchi.com, has launched its service in the UK.
Leetchi.com is an easy, fast and secure money collection platform that allows anyone to create a ‘money pot’ in less than a minute and invite others to help finance projects such as group gifts for birthdays, baby showers and co-workers, as well as fundraising for projects, charities and events.
With the trust in UK charities at a record low, people are relying on donation-based crowdfunding to help fulfill fundraising targets and remove charities from the equation all together. In order to maximise this rising trend and offer a better service to its 200k UK customers already utilising the Paris-based platform, Leetchi.com has integrated the GBP.
Since its launch in 2009, Leetchi has become a leading European service. Acquired by French bank Crédit Mutuel Arkéa in 2015, Leetchi has amassed more than six million users. Today, Leetchi.com is available in four languages: French, English, Spanish and German, and people can contribute to money pots from over 150 countries.
Leetchi.com offers lower fees than any other online group-gifting platform. Unlike existing platforms in the UK market, it is completely free to create a money pot and launch a campaign. To reduce costs further, Leetchi.com’s extensive list of partner sites means that you can spend your money pool with no additional fee – making the ‘project to purchase’ process completely free.
