What payment methods does Givebutter accept?
Givebutter automatically allows you to process payments via all major credit and debit cards, PayPal, Venmo, and digital wallets like Apple, Google, and Microsoft Pay, without any technical overhead or merchant account setup necessary.
Card Payments 💳
All major cards are supported, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club.
To donate using Venmo on a mobile device, donors must have the Venmo app installed and access your campaign from the native browser for that device (Safari on iOS and Chrome on Android.) Venmo will display as a payment option on all desktop computers, as long as the browser is up-to-date.
✅ Pro tip: Venmo will not appear as an option on your mobile device if you aren't logged into the app or don't have a payment method linked. Recurring donations are not compatible with Venmo at this time.
The option to donate with PayPal is displayed to all donors.
Digital Wallet 📱
Digital Wallet options will automatically be displayed based on a browser and availability:
Google Pay appears on mobile and Desktop Chrome browsers and works with embedded forms.
Apple Pay appears on mobile and desktop Safari browsers (and now Google Chrome with the latest iOS version).
Microsoft Pay appears on a limited number of Internet Explorer browsers.
✅ Pro tip: For Digital Wallet options to appear, donors must have a valid payment method linked to their respective wallet, and they must be visiting the site from a supported browser. Recurring donations are not compatible with Digital Wallets at this time.
ACH Payments 🏦
Automated Clearing House (ACH) is available to any account that meets these criteria.
Checks & Cash (Offline Payments) 💸
Additionally, you can allow donors to give by mailing a check (a field is provided for entering mailing instructions.) Admins can also record cash transactions through the dashboard. Here are instructions for how to enter offline payments.
✅ Pro tip: Offline payments are not included in Givebutter Payouts because they are manually deposited by Admins. No processing of offline donations takes place by Givebutter.
