Add a Donate Button to Make Giving Easier

With PayPal, you can easily give your donors several ways of paying you. You start by adding a Donate button to your website, blog, or an email – it takes under 15 minutes.

Using PayPal makes your fundraising mission much easier:

  1. Create a button.
  2. Paste the button onto your website or blog, or paste the URL link into an email.
  3. Donors just click on the button or link and choose their payment method.
  4. Track all your incoming donations in your account.

The ease of use extends to your donors. Donors simply click on your button or link and choose to pay with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account. All donations go directly into your PayPal account for easy tracking.

(Please note: Fundraisers that are not verified nonprofits will be asked to demonstrate how their donations will be used, once they raise more than $10,000.)

Best of all, there are no setup costs or monthly fees. You pay only 2.9% + $0.30 USD per transaction (for example, on a $100 donation, you pay a $3.20 fee).
