WePay: The PayPal Payment System for Groups

If you’re raising funds for any kind of real-life group, event or project, you might already know that it isn’t easy to manually manage and track funds with PayPal and other similar web-based payments providers, let alone allow members to view financial details. If that’s the sort of feature set you’re looking for, WePay might be what you’re looking for.

Any number of my colleagues have complained that PayPal was a difficult way to collect and track multi-sourced funds. For example, my wife is a film producer and managed to leverage Facebook, blogs and word of mouth to raising financial interest in an indie film that she’s working on. However, when it came to actually collecting funds, the director’s husband had to integrate PayPal and track what came in that way. Unfortunately, there are no fine-grain controls in PayPal that lets multiple people access the project’s financial details, remind people who haven’t contributed, see a balance, and more.
