How to Collect Donations on Your Website
May 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Accepting donation payments on your WordPress website is an extremely important task.
There are various reasons for getting donations: it can be a great source of raising funds for the different non-profit organizations, charities, bloggers, and developers as well.
If you are a developer and offering free products, you can raise your funds using a donation button on your website to get inspiration to do more stuff or if you are a blogger and you are running a number of websites that are providing free stuff, you also can do so in this regard.
Suppose you create a website for a charity or non-profit organization, you need to help them raise funds for executing different projects.
Many times, donors prefer to donate online instead of sending checks in the mail or in cash. Making donations online is kind of hassle-free, straight forward, and quick, that’s why they prefer to pay online. Moreover, an online donation can reduce fundraising cost that attracts more supporters. In these days, a fast, secure and convenient donation is desired by everyone.
There are dozens of WordPress donation plugins available in the market. Check out these articles for the popular ones:

The problem is that not all of them are easy to setup and use, and a lot of them are not supported in Uganda.
You need a donation plugin that is reliable, works on mobile as well as desktop computers, supports your preferred payment gateway, sends receipts to donors, allow donors to make recurring donations, and is customizable enough to look good on your website. On top of all that, you want a WordPress donation plugin that charges the least amount of fees.
