You've found this page because you are one of our friends, one of your friends sent you here or because a company we love has recommended Patchwork. Either way you're one of the lucky people who get to use Patchwork fee free.
Patchwork is a global platform that lets friends contribute cash, time and skills towards a group gift or event.
You can use Patchwork to organise all sorts of celebratory occasions - from weddings and baby showers to surprise birthday parties - and collectively fund all kinds of unique gifts and experiences - from honeymoons to handbags, campervans to cookery classes and bikes to beehives.
You can customise one of our many template patchworks or start your own from scratch using our gorgeous gallery and your own images. Just like adding pins to a Pinterest board, you get to give each image a title and description, but with patchwork you also assign an action to each image, so friends can see what you're asking them to fund, make or do.
Funds given via Patchwork go direct to your PayPal account, for you to spend when and where you like. And all of the things people choose to fund, make and do are recorded in your Patchwork account, so you can keep track of contributions and send thanks when you're ready.
Patchwork is free for everyone who uses our platform to ask people to make and do stuff. But if you're collecting cash contributions through the site we usually charge a 3% commission on funds received. All you need to do to waive this fee is use the code given to you by one of our team, your friend or the company who recommended us. You'll be prompted to enter it when you link your Patchwork to your preferred payment partner and publish your patchwork.
We partner with PayPal and Stripe so you can receive your fund direct to spend how you like. Both of these companies charge a small fee on funds received. You can compare partner fees here.
"We liked that it was possible to have a range of different things people could fund at different prices. This meant that people were able to contribute even if they didn't have as much to give."

"Of the few 'funding' sites Patchwork was the easiest to use. It's transparent about cost and it's interface is a breeze whilst looking really lovely. It was so easy to use. Everything from setting it up, to sharing our link, to transferring the money was so user friendly."
