My clients want to install a donation page on their website.

I know that i can use paypal donation buttons, but they want something similar to this.

https://worldrelief.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=2871
Any websites, services or tips on how to do so?
I stumbled upon such services but i cant find them now.

Note they are a charity for helping kids: ASTEP .

Thanks

I’m pretty sure you can do that with PayPal – collect the payment information on your site, then send them to PayPal to actually submit the donation. And the paid PayPal merchant services will allow you to incorporate this and process the transaction without actually leaving your site I believe.

There are probably donation-specific services out there that allow you to do what you want, but I’m not aware of any. That is, I think you can accomplish this with PayPal if you want to, but there may be better solutions out there.

I’ve seen several sites use PayPal to do this, and it always worked pretty seamlessly together. As sevenpark said, it’s definitely something to look into.

We’re saying that you can create a donation page exactly like World Relief’s donation page, and just have PayPal do the actual processing.

PayPal has a whole slew of APIs that you can use. Those donation buttons they offer are the simplest version and just the tip of the iceberg. Their documentation leaves a lot to be desired, but the use cases their APIs cover are pretty extensive I’ve found.

Hi SimplyDo,

Definitely check into the API ’s that PayPal provide.

I know they are a charity but are they willing to get a Merchant Number from a Bank that can provide online solutions (such as Chase)?

I only mention chase because I have worked with them in creating a donation website (email me through my profile if you would like the link to check it out).

Might wanna check Smashing Magazine’s article Getting Started With The PayPal API – I haven’t read it thoroughly though and I’m not sure if it fits your problem. :)
