Collecting money

Hi, I am wanting to set up an online collection for someone who is retiring in a few weeks. I want something secure that colleagues can access easily and not have to sign up for and where we can spend the money anywhere and withdraw to give her anything remaining. I have no idea where to start. Thanks in advance 😊

    How about PayPal?  No cost if it's done on a 'friends and family' basis.
    • Here’s how easy it is:
    • Log into your account at, select “Pay or send money” and choose whether you’re paying for goods or services or sending money to friends and family
    • Enter the recipient’s email address, mobile number or name and click “Next”
    • Enter the amount and click “Continue”
    • Click “Change Payment Method” to select PayPal Credit if it’s not already set, confirm your payment details and click “Send Money Now”
    • We’ll keep your financial information secure and private, and your transaction will appear on your monthly PayPal Credit statement. The recipient can access the money once you complete the payment.
