You might be using a PayPal donation button on your website, and that’s fine because it works. It’s a reliable way to make sure you get paid by a trusted source. But embedding a JotForm donation form, that’s integrated with PayPal, might actually be more financially fruitful for your organization.
It’s a poorly kept secret that JotForm and PayPal go together like peas and carrots in the world of donations. Any nonprofit can turn a JotForm form into a powerful tool for collecting donations through PayPal, or several other payment gateways, in just a couple of clicks.
Below are a few of the reasons that JotForm should replace using only a PayPal donate button on your nonprofit’s website.
JotForm makes it easier for potential donors to select amounts.
Dropdowns, checkboxes, and custom amount fields are options to add to your form for selecting donation amounts. We suggest using some sort of mix, with a few tiered options displaying various amounts next to checkboxes, and an extra option if they want to give a custom amount. This isn’t possible, however, with PayPal donate buttons.
Mobile donations are simplified with a form.
PayPal donate buttons don’t stick out as prominently on mobile devices. The result? Fewer people find and donate to your cause from their phones than if they filled out a mobile-ready donation form. JotForm forms are responsive by default, making the new donation form you made display perfectly on phones and tablets.
Forms can match the aesthetics of your website.
PayPal donation buttons have a certain look to them, don’t they? Your online forms, however, look however you’d like them to look. If branding is important to your nonprofit, consider a solution that lets your organization brand the donation process as well.
