Instagram Makes Fundraising Easier
Users can now make donations via Instagram Live. Nonprofits are able to raise money during streams. Viewers will need to join the Live session and choose to donate funds. Hosts of the streams will have to decide whether they want to support nonprofit and what will it be. Running the show, they will be able to check out how much users have donated, and how many people decided to join the charity. Once hosts decide to thank someone particular, they can just tap on them.
The idea sounds pretty noble, and Instagram does not take a percentage of the sum. It goes directly to the charity organization. While the live streams are getting more popular on Instagram, each host can decide whether to become a fundraiser or not. Everyone can turn the live session into fundraising by picking the proper category. Instagram has recently added stickers to mark donations in Stories.
Instagram is getting more obsessed with Live sessions. The company has even announced its plans to place Live option over the IGTV a few weeks earlier. They are going to concentrate on Live features, which are on-demand in the USA. The usage of Instagram Live is more than 70 percent in the country. Such an increase makes this new service the main product of Instagram nowadays.
To donate the money, users have to push the Donate button below the screen. They can press Next after checking out the sum they can share. Users can quickly check upon the payment options and pick their payment card.
