Swipe4Free Holiday Toy Drive with Toys for Tots!

Swipe4Free will once again be participating in the region’s largest holiday toy drive: The United States Marines Toys for Tots, for Long Island and New York City. Following a sensational year in 2020 where our staff and merchants contributed throughout the holiday season, we will once again be setting high goals in order to give back to the communities we serve.  

Swipe4Free co-founder and Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Vartanov will again serve as a Toys for Tots Vice Chair and for the second consecutive year, be working along with local first responders to help spread holiday cheer in Long Island and New York City’s most in-need communities. Residents seeking to donate to the cause can find drop-off locations at the Jericho Volunteer Fire Department or reach out to Swipe4Free at 1-855-345-0040 or info@swipe4free.com to arrange a drop-off time at our corporate office in Long Island City, Queens.  

2020 and 2021 have been challenging years for many communities, especially our small businesses. Swipe4Free has been fortunate to help keep businesses’ doors open across the New York-metropolitan region, saving tens-of-thousands monthly for nearly 15,000 merchants across the Boroughs and Long Island. Now, as the holidays are upon us, Swipe4Free is happy to again do our part to lift spirits and bring smiles to the faces of those in need across our area. 

“Toys for Tots brings together people from all across Long Island, united in mission to bring smiles to children’s faces. The holidays bring out the best in all of us and this is one way that so many Long Islanders are inspired to give back,” said Jennifer Vartanov, Chief Financial Officer and co-Founder of Swipe4Free and Toys for Tots Vice Chair. 

About Swipe4Free

Swipe4Free is the nation’s number one cash discount and surcharging platform. Founded by Leo Vartanov and Chris Benabu in 2015, Swipe4Free allows merchants to pass their credit card processing fees along to the customer by implementing a 4% non-cash charge to all customers who pay with credit/debit cards. The non-cash charge is legal within all 50 states and is automatically waived when customers pay with cash or a gift card. The customers are made aware of the non-cash charge with signage and stickers that we provide for your place of business. You can place the signage on the door of the business as well as on/near the register where customers pay. We also provide language for online businesses to make customers aware of the non-cash charge. This 4% non-cash charge eliminates all your credit card processing fees, allowing you to keep 100% of the profits per transaction made with credit/debit cards. Swipe4Free uses the 4% non-cash charge to cover interchange costs, authorization costs, transaction costs, and support for our merchants.
