How to Accept Donation Payments Online

Do you have a cause that’s important to you? A way that you are adding to the good in the world?

Do you have a non-profit like an animal sanctuary, a passion for creating sustainable communities where they’re lacking, a church camp or event worth supporting? Or does your heart beat strongly for orphans or foster kids?

Doing big, beautiful things online takes time and money in order to keep things going. So it’s likely that if you are doing something big and beautiful, you probably need funding for it.

The Simplest Solution for Accepting Online Donations

If you need to accept donations easily and securely online with credit cards then the best solution is WP Simple Pay Pro linked with Stripe.

WP Simple Pay Pro can easily accept one-time or monthly recurring donations so that your supporters can give to your cause and keep giving. You can also let your donors choose or enter the amount they want to give. You can get WP Simple Pay Pro’s payment form up and running in less than five minutes and customize it to your specific business or non-profit.

Donations with Custom Amount Fields

If you have a foundation or a cause, such as a Cancer Foundation, that needs to accept donations you can create a simple payment form with a custom amount field. Your customer can then enter the amount they choose to donate one time and even click the box below if they would like to make it into a recurring monthly payment. Here is an example of the user-entered custom amount form.

After they enter their desired amount and click the box to make it a monthly payment, then they will click on the “Pay with Card” button and the payment window will pop up. Simple, clean, and impressive. Our documentation has detailed information on how you can easily set up these payment forms.

Donations of Monthly Recurring Payments

A non-profit organization called Bring Me Hope uses WP Simple Pay Pro to accept donations for Chinese orphans and at-risk youth. They have two different payment forms that you can see in action in the screenshots below. This first form below uses the custom amount field, the monthly donation checkbox, radio buttons, and an additional open field for more information.

Then, you click through to the payment form where you input your information and credit card.

One-Time Donations with Drop Downs, Radio Buttons, and Text Fields

This same non-profit uses a second payment form to collect funds for camp sponsorship donations. This form was set up with the option to sponsor multiple orphans and it sums up the total for you. They used radio buttons and text fields to collect more information from their sponsors. You can very easily customize the information you want to gather from your customers/sponsors.

Customizing Your Donation Payment Form for Your Brand

The non-profit, Forever Amber Acres, is an Animal Sanctuary that is using WP Simple Pay Pro to accept a variety of donations from their interested sponsors. By using this simple payment form they have offered their sponsors many different levels of sponsorship. They have an open custom field where a contributor can simply enter an amount and click the button “Donate Today”. But they have continued on to allow the sponsor to choose a subscription.

As you can see below, they have used the drop down forms option to add creative custom choices such as “Bridle Party” for a $75 donation or the “Big Muckity-Mucks” for a $200 donation. These are some examples of ways you can add your own spin and stay true to your brand by making this simple payment form meet your needs. You can see their payment form in action on their donation page.
