Accepting monthly donations on your Weebly site has never been easier with Donorbox. Using Donorbox’s auto-generated code, you can embed a form or install a donate button on your web page.

If your website does not support SSL, our donate button is a great solution. The Donorbox donate button will take donors to an SSL-secured donation page that’s hosted for free on our secure servers.

Here’s how to install an attractive donate button.

When a donor clicks on the donate button, they will be taken to your Donorbox-hosted donation page, like the one shown below. Another benefit of Donorbox is that you can track donations and donors can easily and securely make one-time or recurring donations. All you have to do is get ready to receive donations!

Installing Donation Form Directly on Website

You have the option of embedding the full Donorbox donation form directly on your website, instead of a Donate button. In this case, your website visitors will see the form directly. Some nonprofits opt for both the options, depending on their website design- adding the donate button wherever needed, while also keeping the embedded donation form on their homepage or donation page. It can be customized to fit into any web page. Check out this tutorial for step-by-step instructions.
