Collecting donations

To allow website visitors to donate sums of money, we recommend using a third-party payment service. Add a donation button or link into the content of your website’s pages in the Pages application.

  • Place the donation element into the design of your page’s templates using the Static text or Static HTML web part (see Using and configuring web parts). This approach allows you to share the donation content across multiple pages, for example in the website footer.
    – OR –
  • Directly add the donation element into the content of a specific page – either via an editable text region on the Page tab, text field on the Form tab (see Editing pages) or using an editor widget.

Tip: Many payment services provide a web interface that allows you to generate HTML snippets for donation buttons or links. You can copy the snippet into the appropriate location in Kentico.

For example, see Create a Donate button to learn how to prepare a PayPal donation button.
