Shopify is an website builder for online stores that makes it easy to collect donations online. You can use premade button that is linked to your secure donation page or you can embed Donorbox‘s customizable donation form. Read on to find out which is the best option for you and how to add them to your Shopify.
Adding a Donate Button
To add a donate button to your Shopify site, simply select any image with text, which come in Shopify templates or if you want to add a new one, select “add section” and choose “Image with text” or “Image with text overlay.”
First, select the image to appear behind your text. Then scroll down until you find the “Button Label.” Choose a name for your button and enter it here. For the example, I chose “Donate Now.”
Next, head to your Donorbox dashboard to the donation campaign you wish to link to. Find the secure donation page link address and copy it.
Now head back to your Shopify page and paste the link where it says “Button link.” Hit enter, and a button will automatically appear beneath your text. Make sure to hit “Save” in the upper right-hand corner, then you can start collecting donations through your Shopify site.
Embed the Donation Form
When embedding the donation form, you must make sure your site is SSL secure in order to protect donors’ information. Shopify stores use SSL encryption everywhere, so you are ready to embed the form!
To begin, start on your Shopify page and select “Add section” on the left side of the screen under the “Sections” option.
Scroll all the way down to find “Custom content” and hit the button that says “add”. Once this section has been added, hit “Add content” and select “Custom HTML”
Now head to your Donorbox dashboard. Find the right campaign, and choose “Embed Form.” Copy the embed code found in the gray box, and head back to your Shopify page.
