What do my donors see?
1. A donor decides to contribute.
On your site, donors decide to support your cause and enter the amount they wish to donate.
2. They enter their payment details.
Your donors are taken to a secure payment page on PayPal's site. To pay with PayPal, they log in and pay in as few as three clicks. To pay by credit card, they fill out the easy payment form.
Before completing the payment, donors see a summary to review key information.
3. They view their payment confirmation.
Upon completion, your donors see a payment confirmation page that they can print for their records. They'll also receive a confirmation email. You'll get one too.
4. They now return to your site.
Donors can be sent back to your site immediately after payment. You can specify where they go in your Website Preferences on the Profile tab of your PayPal account. We'll send you their contact information for future appeals.
5. You collect the donation.
When your donor's payment goes into your PayPal account, transfer the money to your bank account (bank transfers usually take 2-3 days to clear) or spend it online anywhere PayPal is accepted.
