We work with a lot of non profits who live and die by donations. One thing we’re tasked with often is creating a simple but effective donation system. They don’t need a whole e-commerce platform with all those complexities but they do need something that can accept payments safely and securely.
We’ve come up with a great solution for companies that need something simpler but very effective. Here’s a brief overview.
Many non profits start with PayPal as their preferred method of donation, but PayPal can be a poor user experience so we often recommend a more robust solution like Stripe.com or Braintree Payments. This is the art and balance of providing a simple solution for payments.
These payment solutions require a security certificate on your server and can come with additional hosting costs.This can be slightly difficult and technical to setup but it provides a great payment experience for your customers.
Many non profits want to give their customers a way to donate one time or create a recurring donation. This is a problem we’ve solved in our simple payment solution.
Non profits also are required by law to provide their donors with a receipt after donations are made. We’ve setup a system for PDF receipts to be generated with each donation. This is another solution that we’ve created for them.
