Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Does anyone have any recommendations for donation services?
My criteria is as follows:
- The site should allow customizable pay pages
- The process should be simple for end users
- As much of the money as possible should go to the web site
Sorry! I'm realizing after posting this (in the wee hours of the morning), that perhaps this isn't quite the right forum for this as it's not specifically related to advertising, but more to generating revenue.
The other party has no idea how you're handling the payment on your end, and you've got no idea how it was handled on their end. It's all handled by PayPal.
There's a history kept on their site that you can download, and you can print the details of each transaction out for your records.
You can set up a custom page on your site any way you want, and just include the small button graphic provided for people to click on to link and make the payment. It's just that simple.
Amazon charges about 5 times as much, and I see no particular advantage, except to Amazon by giving them a little extra promotion.
Added: Just re-read your post. Since it's the Advertising forum, here's a suggestion. If there are any books relevant to the organization you run the site for, you can do an Amazon affiliate program to get a little revenue. That's a whole other issue than getting contributions, but could be a possibiity for you to get a little extra.
