Matchday enables you to accept payments directly from your players as one-off payments or multiple instalments, straight from your phone. No more chasing players for fees or fumbling with cash; just more time for you to run your club.
To make life even easier, we partnered with online payments service PayPal, for safe, secure and simple money transfers. And because club volunteers are the lifeblood of the grassroots game, there are rewards throughout the season from PayPal to managers and players who use Matchday Payments.
Like us, PayPal are dedicated to making busy lives simple. Your club’s players (or their parents) just need a PayPal account to pay. With 26 million PayPal users in the UK, chances are many already have one. If not, creating a PayPal account is free and takes only a few minutes.
In addition to paying using their PayPal accounts, players can make payments either by cash or by credit or debit cards too. However, because PayPal makes payments using your existing debit or credit card stored on your account, players can save more time by not having to input their card details each time they pay.
