Donorfy offers two ways for you to collect donations online with the benefit of them being added directly into your Donorfy database - widgets (cards and direct debits) and campaign pages (cards only).

See this page to compare costs with other services.

Accepting credit/debit card donations (one-off and recurring) from a Donorfy Stripe widget embedded in charity's website

Example: https://www.heartofenglandforest.com/get-involved/single-donation/

Pros

  • data goes straight into Donorfy
  • low cost (see attached comparison)
  • can be styled to charity's own brand
  • can capture additional fields and update tags

Cons

  • needs web designer involvement, but very simple to do
  • cards expire so not the best payment method for recurring

Accepting credit/debit card donations (one-off and recurring) from a free-standing Donorfy Campaign page

Accepting donations via a JustGiving Donate button in your website

Con's

  • limited styling (upload logo, add text and HTML if required)
  • more expensive (see attached comparison)
  • still requires some web designer work to embed it in the website
  • data needs exporting from JG and importing into Donorfy (only Fundraising Page donations come into Donorfy automatically via the integration).
