Accept Recurring Donations on Wix using a Donate Button

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:

Copy embed code for your Wix donate button

Go to your Donorbox dashboard and click “Donate Button” to the right of the campaign you wish to link to.

You can customize the size and color of your donation button to make it better match your logo and your website’s aesthetic. Once you have done so, copy the embed code.

Set up your website to accept recurring donations

Now, head over to your website editor and find or create the page on which you wish to add your Wix donation button.

After naming your page, click the “Add” button on the left-hand sidebar (the plus-sign button) and drag the green “HTML Code” widget onto your page.

Paste your Wix donate button embed code in the appropriate text box. Once your code is pasted, your donation button should appear in the text box.

Publish the page by clicking the button at the top right of the screen, and get ready to receive your Wix donations!

Clicking on the donate button will take you to your secure donation page such as the one below to allow you to accept recurring donations on Wix despite their lack of SSL support.

Use your own donation button

If, despite our different options for customization, you do not want to use our donate button, feel free to use your own. To do so, go to your Donorbox dashboard and copy the URL for your secure donation page.

Then, go to your Wix website editor and, on the page on which you want to place your button, click the “Add” tab on the left-hand side bar. Under “Image,” click “My Image Uploads”.

Upload the image for your donate button and click “Add to Page”.

Above your donation button, click the link button.

In the new pop-up screen, select “Web Address” and paste the URL of your secure donation page. Click done, publish your update website, and your personal Wix donate button will be ready to bring in some donations!
