Implementing online PTA payment solutions can help increase your efficiency and community involvement, save time for volunteers, make payments more secure, and eliminate complicated reporting — just to name a few. Bonus: You can collect payments and create forms online, both under the same account, for free. Need more convincing? Here, we detail 10 benefits to your PTO or PTA going digital.
PTA Payment Solutions Save Time
1. Track all payments automatically.
2. Deposit directly into your PTA’s bank account.
3. Automate follow-up reminders for payments and forms.
4. Simplify after-school enrichment registration.
Turn enrichment coordinators’ files of paper forms, check payments, class rosters and spreadsheets into one online dashboard. You can set up your registration page to include detailed class descriptions, recurring payments, and class sizes. Cheddar Up can even automate your monthly payment reminders!
5. Create a One-Stop Shop for your PTA.
Parents will love the simplicity of one webpage for all their PTA needs. We call it a Group Page. (Check out this example.) At a minimal cost, you can have one consistent URL that lists all your active collections, like PTA membership, class donations, and spirit wear. This is an exclusive feature you won’t find on other PTA payment solutions. Plus, an extra layer of convenience: Anyone can pay on your page without creating an account. Send out your custom link or QR code and they can pay immediately, no signup pop-ups in between.
6. Manage events efficiently.
“Cheddar Up’s ease and flexibility is just what our chapter needed. We use it for all types of collecting — from member dues to major events with hundreds of participants. The platform’s design is simple and intuitive, which is important to me.”

In just seconds, you can duplicate and update your collections to use year after year.
