Generally, the sites provide free information or services to the not for profit community. A "commercial" site may be listed. If so, it is because of the value it provides to not for profit groups in relation to any fee it may charge for its service.

An alternative is to at least register with the major sites using a submission service.

A potentially very beneficial way to receive contributions is by allowing your supporters to make a donation by credit card. There are a number of sites that offer this service to not for profit groups so that your supporters can contribute by credit card online. You can also provide this service through your own site. Most of the sites that offer the service charge a fee for doing the processing. We have seen fees as high as 15%. Accepting credit card contributions through your own site can be far cheaper, but there are still significant costs involved and the need to administer and maintain the service. There is, however, an alternative that we recommend you study.
PayPal is a commercial service that allows you to receive credit card payments. The service is "free" for credit card payments made to you and also allows you to make credit card payments for a reasonable per transaction fee. Click on the PayPal logo to go to their site to learn more and sign up for their service.
The issue of whether or not an organization needs to be registered in every state in which they solicit contributions is not clear. Some experts say this is required. Others say an organization only needs to be registered in the state in which they are organized. We and Helping.org both recommend that you review this issue with your legal advisor before using this or any other service to solicit online credit card contributions.
