donation form

 3:24 am on Jun 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

I'm new to e-commerce world. Hope you guys can point me to the right direction.

What is the best way to receive donation online?

I would like the user to enter the value in form, not a donation button, and not leaving the website.

Can you guys recommend an e-commerce system that can do this easily?

Thanks very much.

PayPal comes to mind. I've used it for non-profits that want to receive $$ as donations. Technically, the user does leave your website but it can be automated so they are returned seamlessly. You might also be able to use one of the free/low cost donation services but you'd need to check into wrapping their screens in a frame on your website. I've never tried this but it might work just fine.

Done the same with Nochex. Simple form which creates link with a parameter string to call the payment service. Customer enters card details on the secure payment service site and is returned to you.

Dead easy, if necessary you can do it with just html and javascript.

Never used it, but Amazon has some called the Honor System for donations.
