Accepting donations online is easy! It doesn't take very much time to set up when using PayPal or a PayPal compatible donation services. The purpose of this post is to include links to information that will help you explore some of the best solutions for your fundraising needs.
Before I get to the good stuff, please remember that posts soliciting donations or other requests for monetary contributions will be removed per the Community Help Forum Rules and Guidelines. While the Community Help Forum isn't the appropriate venue for requesting donations, we do want to make sure that any person seeking to collect donations with PayPal has the information they need to get started.
So here we go:
Most of the following information can be referenced from these pages:
How does it work?
Any eBay seller can commit to donate a percentage of their listing's final sale price to the nonprofit of their choice. To find sellers using eBay Giving Works, search on this page http://givingworks.ebay.com or click: here.
