How does Cheddar Up work?
Whether you’re collecting dues and fees, fundraising, managing an event, creating a sign up, or selling something online or in-person, you can do it with a Cheddar Up collection. We’ll show you how.
Create a free account

Unlimited free withdrawals
When you collect payments, Cheddar Up securely holds your funds until you’re ready to make a withdrawal to a connected bank account. Withdrawals are free and unlimited.
Customize your collection
Add a title and custom imagery
Start building your collection by giving it a title, optional description and a snazzy banner (or any image of your choosing) to make it your own.
Raise more with goal setting
Have a goal in mind? Consider setting a fundraising goal for extra transparency and to encourage people to give more.
Add an amount type
Need to collect payments? Add an item. You can choose from a fixed amount item (e.g. a t-shirt for $10), an open amount item (great for donations), or a recurring amount item (great for monthly fees).
Ask some questions
If you need to collect information related to an item, add an item question–perfect for collecting t-shirt size or event registrations. Explore many other item customizations including images, descriptions and quantity limits.
Group items on your collection page by creating categories. Add more detail with category descriptions. Even turn categories into a filterable navigation menu–great for collections with lots of items.
Add forms, waivers, or sign-ups
Add forms to your page
Collect information of any kind from your community…digitally. Choose from 13 question types – multiple choice, open text, checkbox, file upload, e-signature…and more.
Collect signed waivers
Collect waivers and other signed documents at the time of payment. Your community will love this efficiency. Just add your document text, and we’ll help you collect respondent name, date and e-signature.
Create a sign up
