The Paylula Story was launched in the spring of 2015 with an enthusiastic team led by co-founding brothers, JP van der Spuy and Thomas van der Spuy. By being involved in many charitable causes, we understand the difficulties and challenges of raising money. We are passionate about providing alternative funding channels that is meaningful and creates credibility to your organisation. This was the birth of our 24 hour premium donations hotline for charities.
We believe in the power of community support and sharing your cause with the world, hence we decided to build a credible fundraising tool to go with it. Ultimately, we want to build a great company and help charities better this beautiful world in a meaningful way.

So far,’s donation hotline service helped raise over R800 000 for more than 70 charities in our first month incubation. We believe in creating a product that is easy to use, inexpensive and can leverage the power of the donor community. We differ from other fundraising channels, our donations hotline provides your organisation with a local number that is unmanned and always ready to accept donations. Our donations hotline works for you in raising very much needed funding and compliments your existing campaign efforts, whether through fundraising events or social sharing. is a powered by Callpay.
