BitPay can only process donations for non-profit organizations who are approved for Tier 2 verification or higher. This means your organization must have 501c3 designation or similar.
If your organization wants to accept cryptocurrency as a donation method, please submit an application. We recommend that you list your industry as nonprofit as this is what allows access to the donation tools.
After the application has been completed, confirm your merchant account email via the link we email to you. After confirming your email address, you will be returned to the Get Started page to verify your business. Click Get Verified to complete initial verification (for the basic tier). Next, input your settlement settings.
To apply for Tier 2 verification, click Start Accepting Bitcoin, which will take you to the merchant dashboard. Select Settings > Approved Volume and apply for Tier 2. You will receive an email with further instructions regarding which documents to provide and how to upload them. Please review our help article on upgrading your daily sales volume limit.
After you've applied for Tier 2 verification and provided all documentation, we will review your Tier Upgrade Request. You will receive an email when your request is approved or if there is any extra information required.
