I work for a .org and we currently have a pay-pal donate on our home page. I'm thinking of doing something a little more enticing. like maybe "The Power of One" with $1 donations (better then none) Or a donate button to donate one meal with the donation = to the cost of one of our meals(4.35 I think)but these are such a low amounts pay pal charges i think $.30 a transaction +% and that out of $1 wouldn't leave much left. anyone know of a better way(and maybe something that would be easier for the user.) also a way to make it look more profesional would be nice.... i don't know paypal just doesn't do it.
If you think you might be doing more than $1,000 a month, a merchant account might be OK and then you might consider bundling some products together. There is always a chance that you might be able to get the transaction rate to about $.20-$.25
