How to Embed a Donorbox Donation Form into a Wix site
Go to your Donorbox dashboard and find the campaign you wish to embed on your site. Click the ‘<>Embed Codes’ button, as shown below.
You can edit some of the default settings in your form here, like setting a default donation amount or recurring option. As you change the settings, you will see the code automatically adjust itself.
When you’re happy with the settings, highlight and copy the embed code for your form. This code will be pasted on your Wix site later on.
Go to your Wix site editor. Locate or create the page that you want to embed your donation form on.
To create a page, under ‘Site Menu’, click the ‘Add Page’ button, as highlighted below.
Next, type a name for your new page in the box shown in the below image and click ‘Done’.
On the page editor, click the ‘+’ (Add) button on the left sidebar. Select the ‘Embed’ option and under ‘Custom Embeds’, select ‘Embed a Widget’.
The step is highlighted below.
Click ‘Enter Code’. Then, paste the Donorbox form embed code under ‘Add your code here’. This is the code that you copied earlier from your Donorbox dashboard.
Next, click ‘Update‘.
When the donation form appears, expand the code box to ensure that the entire form is visible.
Publish your page and wait for the donations to come in!
You also have the option of installing a donation button, if you prefer. A donation button will only deploy your form when it is clicked. Check out this tutorial for step-by-step instructions.

The issue with resizing donation forms on Wix sites
Due to Wix’s iFrame embed policy, Donorbox cannot adjust the actual height or width of the donation widget container on Wix sites. So, if your widget container is smaller than the Donorbox donation form, a scrollbar will be displayed.
The scroll bar won’t block the donor from continuing with the donation. But, it can look somewhat unpolished and force the donor to scroll a bit to make their way through your form.
To get around this issue, we recommend that you increase the height or width of the widget container, using Wix’s site editor. This ensures that the donation form will have enough room to be displayed without the need for a scroll bar.
