What payment methods does Givebutter accept? Givebutter automatically allows you to process payments via all major credit and debit cards, PayPal, Venmo, DAFs, ACH, and digital wallets like Apple and Google, without any technical overhead or merchant account setup necessary. You can also log offline payments via check or cash!
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.
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:
Appears on mobile, and on desktop Chrome browsers (Chrome must be updated to the latest version, and the Google Pay browser extension installed, with their account linked to their mobile device)
Appears on mobile and desktop Safari browsers, and Google Chrome with the latest iOS version. Please note that Apple Pay will not appear in a Widget embed, as limitations set by Apple prevent it from being used in iFrames.
ACH Payments 🏦
Automated Clearing House (ACH) is available to any account that meets these criteria.
Offline Payments 💸
You can allow donors to give by check or cash! A field is provided for entering mailing instructions for check donations. Admins can also record cash transactions through the dashboard. (Donors cannot select cash as an option.) Please see our instructions for how to enter offline payments.
👉 Note: Offline payments are not included in Givebutter Payouts because they are manually deposited by Admins. No processing of offline donations takes place by Givebutter.
Givebutter’s DAF (Donor-Advised Fund) donation method is available for verified nonprofit accounts, and powered by Chariot. Read more about this payment method, including how to add it to your account.
