payment options example

Card Payments 💳

All major cards are supported, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club.

Venmo ✅

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.

Venmo will not appear as an option if:

  • You aren't logged into the app on your mobile device.

  • You don't have a payment method linked on the app.

  • A recurring donation is selected. Recurring plans are not compatible with Venmo at this time.

  • You're accessing the campaign via Widget embed on a mobile device. Please access the Givebutter campaign directly, or view the embedded Widget on a desktop site.

Paypal 💻

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 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)

  • Apple Pay

    • 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.

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. ACH payments do not have a minimum donation amount, and they can be used with one-time and recurring donation plans.

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 and check transactions through the dashboard. (Donors cannot select cash as an option.) Please see our instructions for how to enter offline payments via the Transactions page, or a contact page.

Auction items cannot yet be paid for by check or cash. Please see our offline auction payment feature request for more information, and add a vote if this is a feature you are interested in!

Offline payments are not included in Givebutter payouts because they are manually deposited by admins. No processing of offline donations takes place by Givebutter.

DAFs 💰

Givebutter’s Donor-Advised Fund payment method is available for verified nonprofit accounts via DAFpay powered by Chariot. Read more about this payment method, including how to add it to your account.
