How to Collect Donations on Your GoDaddy Site

GoDaddy offers a free website builder that allows users to create fully functional websites in under an hour. For Donorbox users to accept donations on a GoDaddy site, you can embed Donorbox‘s donation form.

Before adding this form, make sure your GoDaddy site is SSL secured in order to protect the information of your donors. If you prefer not to get an SSL certificate for your site or if you simply prefer a more subtle look, another option is to create a donate button that will take you to your SSL secured donation page.

Once you’ve added the donation form or linked the donate button, donors will be able to donate via credit card, PayPal, or low fee ACH payments.

In this article, you will learn how to easily embed a donation form and add a donate button on your GoDaddy website with Donorbox’s fundraising platform.
