How to Create a Donation App

September 5, 2023

Collecting donations has never been easier with Jotform Donation Apps. Now all you have to do to collect donations is drag and drop an element into the App Builder.

  1. Open the App Builder and drag and drop the Donation Box element into your App Builder. Please note that when you use the donation element you cannot use the product element at the same time.

How to Add Fixed Amounts

Donation Box automatically includes buttons with predefined dollar amounts for donors to select. But you can add more predefined amounts to make donating easy. 

  1. Click the gear wheel on the right side of the element to open Donation Box Properties.
