Stripe and PayPal are excellent payment processors that interact with the banks' charging facility. However, while they allow you to accept online transactions, they don't offer a specialized form to collect donations or store donor data. They also don't provide a good facility to manage recurring donations. Donorbox, on the other hand, is optimized for giving.
Here are just some of Donorbox’s most popular features
Daily, Weekly, Biweekly, Monthly, Quarterly, and Annual Recurring Donations: It takes only 1 click to set up a recurring donation. No extra registration screens or information are required.
Donors Cover Fees: Give donors the option to cover the processing fee on their donations. The fee will be added on, so only 1 donation is processed.
Company Matching Donations: Get other organizations and businesses to donate to your campaign. Donorbox forms support company donations.
Pop-up Donation Forms: Set your donation form to pop up onscreen, at the click of a button. We supply the code. All you have to do is copy and paste.
Social Media: Share your campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to attract more interest and spread awareness.
Donor Wall: Show all your donor messages and comments on your campaign’s very own Donor Wall.
Goal Meter: Share your fundraising progress with the world using our goal meter. Include it as part of your form design or embed it separately.
Donor Profile: Every recurring donor is automatically allocated a donor profile, complete with login details and a password. Donors can edit their own recurring donation plans.
