Feature Update: Send Test Emails

Attention nonprofits, we just launched a new feature! You can now send yourself test receipt emails to see first-hand how your donation receipt template looks when it is sent out to your donors.

Initial & One-Time Donations

There are two types of email receipts you can test, the first being for initial and one-time donations.

Start by heading over to your Donorbox dashboard and clicking the “Edit” button by the campaign whose receipt email you wish to test.

Go to the “Email” tab of your campaign editor and, once you have drafted you email template, click the gray “Send Test Email” button.

This will send a test email to the email address you used to create your Donorbox account. You should get a popup notification letting you know that the email has been sent.

Subsequent Monthly Donations

The second type of email receipt you can test is the one for subsequent monthly donations. To do so, go to your Donorbox Account page and click the “Receipt Email Settings” link on the left-hand side.

Here again, once you have drafted your email template, click the gray “Send Test Email” button.

That’s it! Your test email will be waiting for you in your inbox, complete with a randomized name and donation amount.

Wix Donation Button – Accept Recurring Donations Online

Wix, one of the most popular website builders out there, unfortunately does not support SSL.

As such, in order to ensure the security of their donors and their information, Donorbox users should not be embedding their recurring donation forms directly onto their Wix websites.

However, Wix users can still use the Donorbox donate button in order to accept recurring donations on Wix, as it will lead donors to a secure hosted donation page. Here’s how:
