[liberationtech] Anyone know of a free payment/donation app for non-profits?

PayPal is especially awful for non-profits. Sometimes they flag donations
as fraudulent, causing the organization to lose momentum on campaigns, as
happened to Diaspora:

Diaspora's story had a somewhat happy ending, with Stripe saving the day --
many others weren't as lucky.

I vaguely remember some PayPal alternative from Europe that was quite
promising. But, by now, I am sure that there are others.

Any ideas?
