Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Cheddar Up app free?
Yes. The mobile app is and always will be free.
Where can I download the Cheddar Up app?
If you own an iOS (Apple) device, you can download the Cheddar Up app at the iOS app store. If you own an Android device, you can download it at the Google Play store.  
Do my payers need to download the mobile app to make a payment?
Nope! In fact, your payers should NOT download the Cheddar Up mobile app to make a payment. The Cheddar Up mobile apps were created solely for group organizers (or volunteers supporting group organizers) to create and manage their collections. We have very intentionally made sure that your community’s paying experience can happen all within their mobile web browser — without any need for a mobile app! 
Can I use an old card reader that I already own?
No. Our mobile apps are programmed to work only with the Cheddar Up Bluetooth card reader. But the good news is that we make these card readers available to you at our wholesale cost (see next question!).
How much does the Cheddar Up Bluetooth card reader cost?
You can access our high-functioning, robust Bluetooth card reader for only $79. Learn more about our card reader and point-of-sale functionality.
Can I manually enter card information when accepting point-of-sale payments?
Yes! You can use our point-of-sale functionality by manually entering credit card reader information, scanning cards (if embossed), or with our Bluetooth card readers. You can even use our point-of-sale functionality to accept and track cash payments.

Pro Tip: While we offer all these point-of-sale methods, we have found that for busy checkouts, our card readers really do keep the lines moving!

Can I do everything on the mobile app that I can do on the Cheddar Up website?
While our mobile fundraising apps have loads of functionality, not every single feature is available there. For example, features such as the ability to add managers to your account, create collections with recurring payments, or add waivers or sign ups to a collection are not possible within our mobile app. While our mobile apps are amazing, we find that some of our most robust functionality, typically used to create more sophisticated collections, is best leveraged on our full-featured website
Use the Cheddar Up app, to stay on top of things even when you‘re on the go.

Staff hated having to collect money and make change for payees before an event. Cheddar Up helps us eliminate that struggle and just enjoy the events.
