ConnectionPoint Adds New Capabilities to its Fundrazr Facebook App

ConnectionPoint, launched its groundbreaking FundRazr Facebook
application, built with PayPal X’s Adaptive Payments APIs, at
TechCrunch 50 in September. Today they announced that FundRazr is one
of the first applications to implement PayPal’s beta Adaptive Accounts

FundRazr allows anyone to quickly and easily collect fees and donations
through a simple Facebook page. Customers can manage and collect
membership fees, sell tickets and raise donations – all via Facebook
with no need for technical skills or a merchant credit card account.

“By integrating PayPal’s new Adaptive Accounts APIs, we’re now able to
provide a seamless sign up experience for our users,” said Daryl
Hatton, CEO of ConnectionPoint. “Users never have to leave Facebook to
quickly and easily set up a PayPal account, allowing them to carry on
with making or receiving a fee or donation payment.”

ConnectionPoint has been working closely with PayPal as part of their
exclusive closed beta program since July 2009. FundRazr provides unique
functionality that harnesses the powerful sharing features of Facebook
to help groups engage with members, supporters and donors. Unlike
registration software or donation-based websites, the visitor stays
within the group’s Facebook page and the administrator controls any
videos, images or messages that the visitors experience.

“FundRazr is a great example of how developers can use PayPal X to do
things that were simply not possible previously,” said Osama Bedier,
PayPal’s vice president of Platform. “PayPal X makes it easy for
developers to monetize their great ideas and we’re thrilled that
ConnectionPoint is taking advantage of the new Adaptive Accounts beta
APIs to improve the experience of their users on Facebook.”
