DonateStack makes it quick and easy to collect donations from your website users, via PayPal. This stack is ideal to collect money for charities, religious groups, fundraising events, schools, donationware downloads or political campaigns. In a basic configuration, users are presented with either a number input box or select menu; for determining how much to give. Clicking the ‘submit’ button takes them through to the secure PayPal website, to complete their transaction.
DonateStack purposefully has ‘fat and friendly’ styling, to make it extra user-friendly for all website users. Several style settings are included, to enable you to customise the appearance and get it to match your existing website. It is easy to integrate DonateStack into some of our other stacks, like TintStack, Shady or StandOut.
A useful advanced feature is the ability to pre-populate the donation amount field with a URL query string. This opens-up the possibility of being able to use the CalcStack for a user to calculate a donation amount, and then CalcStack can pass the answer over into DonateStack. It’s one of the reasons this stack was created.
Because it is envisioned a lot of RapidWeaver users will be using DonateStack for charities or non-profits, the stack is also provided for free. But if you do find it helpful, please share a link with us and an estimate of how much revenue you’re getting from it. It would be interesting to know. You can also use DonateStack to make a contribution on the Stacks4Stacks website!
