Indiegogo’s response

May 2, 2015 — To the Change.org Community,

Thank you for highlighting the need to easily support each other without fees in times of need. We at Indiegogo agree with you. This philosophy and commitment to serving our global community led us to launch Indiegogo Life last December. Indiegogo Life enables people from all over the world to come together and support the causes that they care about the most, without ever having to pay platform fees. Indiegogo Life has never charged platform fees, and we're very proud of this!

To ensure all donations are securely processed and in real-time, our third-party payment processor charges a 3% fee per transaction. At this time it's not within our power to waive this fee, but we will let you know if anything changes.
What makes us most proud is the fact that in five days more than 400 people have raised more than $1,400,000 on Indiegogo and Indiegogo Life from more than 17,500 donors across 100 countries and territories to support the relief efforts in Nepal. The breadth of the impact enabled by these fundraisers is astounding and a testament to the human spirit. If you would like to support the aid workers, volunteers and the people of Nepal, please visit our Nepal Relief Collection https://life.indiegogo.com/campaign_collections/nepal-relief-fundraisers.

Thank you for continued support of Indiegogo Life and the people of Nepal.
