Getting Started With CustomDonations

Custom Donations allows you to easily embed custom giving forms into your existing website. Before you get started, there are two requirements:

A Stripe account: Stripe is the online credit card processor that Custom Donations is designed to work with, simplifying both receiving credit card payments from your generous donors and getting those gifts into your bank accounts. Nonprofits may qualify for special rates on processing fees, so be sure to check with Stripe about that.

An SSL Certificate: To accept online donations, your site must support the HTTPS protocol. This provides the security that puts your donors at ease.

Stripe is the best way to accept payments online and in mobile apps.

In-person Transactions

Our Windows app syncs your giving forms with a mobile bluetooth card reader. This allows you to take payments in-person using the Custom Donations forms you already use! With this solution there are no additional fees or payment processors, just a one-time hardware purchase.

This app is currently only available for our customers based in the USA. Contact sales@customdonations.com for more information.
