Online Giving is available as part of our Premium Plan. The following outlines how to get everything setup.
Start by going to the My Account page and setting up your billing details. If you have already done this, upgrade your plan to the Premium Plan. This will unlock all of the Online Giving features.
Setting Up Your Stripe Account
Our online giving system is powered by Stripe (http://stripe.com/). You will need to create an account with Stripe and verify your account. Please note that you need a valid business number to activate your account. Also, if you are a nonprofit email [email protected] and they will give you a reduced rate.
Adding Your Details To Your Site
From your site’s dashboard click the “Settings, Social Media & Contact Info” tab from the list in the center of your screen. This is where we will manage all of your payment settings. Click the “Giving” tab from the list of settings (see below). You will need to add your Stripe API keys. Don’t worry, they are easy to find. Login to Stripe. Click “API” on the left-hand side of your screen. You can copy the Publishable and Secret key from there. Remember Live mode accepts real donations.
Enter your keys, set your currency, set the currency symbol such as “$” and also set the success and error messages. These will display when someone makes a donation.
Create a Giving Page
You can either create a new page or add a giving form to an existing page. To add the donation form to a page add a new section on the page by clicking “New Sections”
Select “Giving” from the list. Enter your titles and the default amount you’d like the form to be set to. Publish or Update the page.
You can now take donations on your site.
One thing to note is that your connection must be secure to accept a donation. If you haven’t already, contact us and we will generate a security certificate for you.
If you have any questions send us an email at [email protected]. We can get everything set up for you.
