Anedot Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Anedot's features:

Jonathan B.

Simple, yet professional

2021-03-09

We are just branching into the electronic donation world, and as we as a rule do not charge our missionaries for handling their funds, we have shied away from donor management that charges large fees, and deducts that from the donation without notifying the donor.

Pros

The ability to have multiple funds, unlimited donors, automatic receipting, recurring donations..

Cons

I feel like if there were any cons with this software, by the time I would finish typing this review, They would be fixed. My experience is that they just care that much.

I would recommend this product for every campaign

2021-06-02

Pros

If there were a way to insert spending into the application, then campaigns would be saved so much time with one large report rather than having to consolidate.

Cons

I do not like the mobile version of this application.

Anedot Increased Our Online Giving

2018-09-28

The experience has been great. Our online giving increased.

Pros

You have our logo, our colors, our campaign description, etc.

Cons

You have the ability to run reports showing the transaction history, but they are on-demand reports, meaning someone has to log in to run them.

The best user friendly & bookkeeper friendly software around!

2020-09-02

Fantastic & I have had to use a few other platforms so I have them to compare to.

Pros

The set up of campaigns is easy to figure out.

Cons

Forgive me if its a feature I don't know but if it could integrate with QuickBooks then my work life would be complete!

James,

Thank you for the review! While we don't manufacture our own card readers, our mobile app is compatible with certain third-party card readers. Feel free to contact us and we will recommend a physical card reader that works with the app!

There is also a scan feature available for use on our app that allows you to scan the donor's card with the mobile device's camera. This scan function captures the same information that the card reader captures.

The Best Donation Platform on the Planet

2021-03-05

The thing that is refreshing with Anedot is we have a regular schedule where donations are dropped into our bank account, so we don't have to fetch it like we did with PayPal.

Pros

Minimalism approach to the design, they keep with is needed and remove the rest.

Cons

However, Anedot provides a text to give tool that seems to work just as good, if not better, than the app with our event donors.

Anedot for Non-Profit Organizations - Review

2018-11-27

Anedot has provided an easy to implement solution for online payments for our non-profit.

Pros

The Anedot administrator dashboard is easy to navigate and contains all the information an accountant would need for proper reporting.

Credit card processing fees are slightly above normal.

PDS Review

2016-10-19

I would like to see the ability to download activity that ties in with the transfer to the bank account.

Pros

Clean simple interface.

Cons

When keying in donors for processing, it sort of jumps around the fields in an awkward way.

Fantastic resource for scaling your political campaign or non-profit website

2020-12-17

For some campaigns with more initial capital and a higher volume of donors, it may make more sense to build your own complete platform with a lower transaction cost, but for smaller campaigns, the cost brings a lot of value.

Pros

Hundreds of necessary elements are already implemented well, with options to customize the look and feel, collect custom donor data, collect donations by text, and create custom reports.

Cons

There are a few elements that still need to be improved for more complete integration with some web campaigns, such as full native web embed (rather than using iframes), full CSS control of the layout, and full API integration for e-commerce and other tools.

Anedot is the best processing option for our pro life nonprofit!

2019-11-18

Every state affiliate of National Right To Life should use this firmly pro-life, firmly conservative payment processing company!

Pros

The customer support is phenomenal, the built in tools are excellent, and we could not be more thrilled with Anedot.

Cons

Very minor tweaks could be made to some built-in wording on reports and formatting improvement on email notifications. Customer support has forwarded these concerns to the proper folks and we are confident that improvements will result.

Anedot - Reliable Service - A Must Have

2018-10-08

I’ve used Anedot with two political campaigns and have found that donors enjoy the security and ease in donating and I can track it all seamlessly.

Pros

The flexiblity and integration with other software tools.

Cons

The only downside is the bank’s timeframe for processing the deposits and that is not something Anedot can control.

One-stop shop to raise MORE money for churches & non-profits

2021-06-02

Great experience working with Anedot. I recommend them to folks whenever I get a chance.

Pros

Their backend is extremely well-designed and intuitive and packed with features if you dig deeper.

Cons

However for smaller churches and non-profits, I believe Anedot and something like Mailchimp would be all you need to run your online fundraising & generate necessary reports on progress. Exporting reports from Anedot is very straightforward - again, the reports are generated on a per-transaction basis - I haven't found a way to export activity (donation history) for a specific user.

What a great system

2020-12-01

We have recommended them to almost all our contacts in the industry.

Pros

They are constantly adding features and have thought of most things that we in the political world need. If you have any issues, the team is fast to respond.

Cons

Since the software doesn't really have issues, I guess if we had to find something it would be during exporting the data.

If you're a non-profit, then you need Anedot.

2020-12-01

The customer service has been excellent. I've had the Anedot team help me out on Saturday mornings before. They are there to serve you.

Pros

The upsell and donor recovery features alone make it worth any higher cost than using Paypall for your donation pages.

Cons

I do hope Anedot adds a few more features to their donation pages like pledges or exit popup messages.

Anedot has great customer service and is very easily accessible. Great team and product! Best in the business.

Pros

I love the customizable donate pages and the data collection tools.

Cons

I like least the lack of integrations with email marketing opportunities - an integration with mailchimp or another email sender would be a huge asset for campaigns.
