    Can I create a donation form without using any of your Payment Processors?

    Asked by PlenioUdo on June 01, 2017 at 05:17 AM

    I do not want to go in connection with Paypal or other third firms at the end of process. How can I manage this?

    Thank you in advance.

    I'm afraid there's no way you can process your payments within the form without using a Payment Processor. The only payment field that doesn't incur any payments, nor use 3rd party payment gateways is our Purchase Order payment field.

    It's worth mentioning that if all you need is some sort of Payment Authorization (e.g. charge your users at a later date), then you can enable Payment Authorization on some of our payment processors.
