We have recently added a new “Team” feature that will allow you to invite other members of your organization to sign up for Donorbox in order to help you manage your Org account. This can also be helpful if you want to give accountants access to view your financials.
After Donation Tracking Code
You can now track conversions from your donation campaigns by using an after donation tracking code! To use this option, go to your campaign editor and click the “Tracking” tab. Then, paste your tracking code, such as your Facebook Pixel conversion code, into the appropriate text box, and click “Save”.
We also added PDF invoices for your Donorbox services, which can come in handy for tax reporting purposes or for your accountants. To access these invoices, go to your Account and click the “Billing” link on the lefthand side. Then, scroll down to your billing history. The monthly PDF invoices will be located in the column on the far-right – just click the file icon to download them.
More Banks for ACH Donations
Plaid has added new banks to the ACH Donation option – there are now about 1,000! As a donor, if your bank does not come up on the first page of the ACH Bank Donation, we recommend using the search bar to search for your bank.
As a reminder, you must be a US customer to receive ACH donations. In order to enable the ACH donation option, you must go to your account and, on the “Account Info” page, scroll down until you find the “Enable ACH Bank Transfer Donation” toggle button. Once you’ve clicked the button to activate ACH Bank Transfers, update your account and you’re all set.
Stay tuned – recurring bank donations are coming in a few weeks!
Change Timezones & Date Format
We know every country looks at time and dates differently. The default timezone for most organizations is GMT. However, by going to your account and clicking the “Localization” button on the right, you can now change your localization settings. This includes changing your time zone as well as your preferred date format (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yyyy, etc.).
Once you update these settings, all of your donation timestamps will change to match your preferences.
We recently added a new page to your Donorbox dashboard in order to make it easier for you to manage your donors! The “Donors” page groups all your donations into a comprehensive list of donor profiles that you can easily sort through based on a variety of factors, such as their name, the date of their last donation, or their donation count. You can also sort by total donation amount!
Are your donors having trouble deciding how much to donate? We recently added a new feature that allows you to pre-fill your donation forms with the default amount of your choice. This will further expedite the checkout process and encourage your donors to donate more than the minimum. To find out how it works, begin by clicking on the “Embed Form” button to the right of your campaign name.

This guide will walk you through how to install a popup donation form on your Squarespace website:
