First, to enable Recurring Donations, you'll need to head to your Account Settings and flip on the switch next to "Recurring Donations."
Once enabled, Recurring Donations will instantly get added to all of your account's past, present, and future campaigns. Check out the donation form on one of your campaign links to see for yourself! Recurring Donations is compatible with all of our payment methods (including Venmo and PayPal), as well as all of our campaign types (Collect, Fundraise, and Events).
In addition, you'll now see a new "Recurring Donations" tab in your dashboard. This is where new recurring donors will appear.
Your recurring donors will automatically receive email receipts for each concurrent charge, with a special link included for them to update their billing information if necessary.
Currently, donors only have the option to give monthly. If you'd like us to add additional functionality for Recurring Donations, you can let us know here!
See this feature in action by going through the donation flow on any of our demo campaigns, found here (under "Fundraisers"): https://demo.givebutter.com/dance-marathon
