Create a money pot

Organising a party can be hard work! Especially if it's for your wedding anniversary or a loved one's birthday. Even more so if the big day is fast approaching and things aren't quite ready... 😕

We've all been through the stress of organising a party, decorating a venue, raising money, dealing with money collection issues or last minute birthday presents.
A collection box is a piggy bank set up for participating in an event (birthday, wedding...). Although they are practical and can look great, there are lots of disadvantages. It might be lost or forgotten about on the day! What can you do to avoid all these problems?

Sometimes, you need everyone to get involved to make a loved one feel special. But what can you do when distance separates you and raising money for a birthday present proves tricky?

Don't panic, create a birthday money pot online! No more late payments, no more worrying about money transfers, no more disputes about the amount, no more loans, running out of birthday gift ideas or losing collection boxes... What's more, creating a money pot on Leetchi is free, easy and quick! An online birthday money pot is the solution to all your problems!👌

How do you create a money pot for a birthday?

  2. Log in or register with a valid email address.
  3. Create, set up and personalise your birthday fund in just a few clicks, free of charge.
  4. Invite guests to contribute to your money pot using the "share pot" feature.
  5. After your Leetchi profile is verified, the money can be transferred to a bank account.

1. Choose the category of your money pot

On Leetchi, there are two categories to choose from: fundraising and mutual aid or celebration and sharing. The second category is for birthdays or wedding anniversaries. It also features money pots for leaving gifts and new babies.

2. Log in (or register on the platform) and remember to get your profile verified

✅ This step must be completed to use your money pot and give birthday gifts. All you need to do is verify the email address linked to your money pot and upload your ID document to our platform.  We would hate for this small hold-up to spoil the chance to spend the money pot and ruin your friend's birthday or anniversary!

💰 Set up how visible your money pot is and define your goal. In just a few clicks, you can collect money online to make your recipient's day. You don't have to set a target amount in the money pot settings. Participants will know at a glance how much money is available in the pot and how much money they need to contribute towards the birthday present, for example. Sounds great, right?

4. Collect lots of donations

🙋 Invite mutual friends to contribute and give money towards the birthday gift.  All you have to do is click the "share a money pot" feature on the platform. You will be able to monitor their contributions on the page for your money pot and you'll find out really quickly if the target has been reached! Leetchi has everything covered, all that's left to do is to finalise the remaining details regarding the gift, the birthday party and the party decorations!

How can I spend my birthday money pot?

💳 When requesting a transfer of the birthday money online, you can choose to pay the money into your personal bank account or into the account of another person (the recipient of the birthday money, for example). This way you can buy the birthday present yourself or send the funds from the money pot directly to your friend. You'll need to provide the recipient's bank details (IBAN and BIC). Leetchi will process the transfer request within 24/48 working hours.    It is therefore important to take this processing period into account when organising the birthday and buying the present.

📌 Please note that there is a fee if you choose the transfer option on our platform. The fee varies between 1.5% and 6% and is calculated according to the amount collected. It allows us to guarantee the proper handling of your money pot, the security of collected funds and ensure that funds raised online comply with the current regulations.
