Why is Donorbox needed when we have a PayPal or Stripe account?

While Stripe and PayPal are excellent payment processors, they are not optimized for professional fundraising. Donorbox is highly specialized fundraising software that offers a platform for collecting donations, managing recurring donations, storing donor data, allowing donors to cover fees, customizing donation forms, automatically sending tax receipts, and much, much more. We’re here to improve the way you fundraise, and we’re constantly innovating to bring you the latest in donation-boosting tech.
