About Givebutter Widgets πŸ”Ž

Givebutter Widgets is the most powerful way to drive donations to your campaigns by putting calls to action right where your donors already are – on your website! Donors can submit a transaction (or purchase tickets) directly on your site, without being redirected.

Widgets can be used with any campaign type, including Forms, Pages and Events. Please note that an embedded Widget will not embed the entire campaign page for Pages and Events – it will embed the checkout flow.

Widgets created from the Givebutter dashboard are dynamic, which means any changes you make on Givebutter will update on your Widget, without needing to update your site's code. You can embed Givebutter Widgets on specific parts of your website by copying and pasting provided HTML code into the editor area of the website where you'd like them to appear.

Types of Widgets πŸ–₯️

  • Button – Buttons can be added anywhere on your website, and display a donation form when clicked. Buttons can be added to the header or footer section of your website. Buttons have two configurable formats, Static and Floating.

    • Static – Placed within your site formatting (such as your site navigation). Scrolls with the page when you scroll down.

    • Floating – Positioned in the lower right corner of the page and "floats" on top of your site formatting so it is always visible. Does not scroll when you scroll down the page.

  • Form – Donor-friendly donation forms can be added to any page on your website. Directly embeds the entire Form, which scrolls with the rest of the page content.

  • Goal Bar – Showcase the progress of your campaign's success with a simple goal bar reflecting performance in real time. Also available as a thermometer-style embed.

  • Signup Form – Add an embedded form (or popup) to your external website to capture potential donor information for your newsletter mailing list. Contact form entries are automatically added as new contacts in your Givebutter account.

Supported payment methods πŸ’Έ

Donors can complete transactions in a Widget using the following payment options:

Apple Pay will not appear in embedded Widgets, as limitations set by Apple prevent it from being used in iFrames. If you would like to provide this option, you will need to direct supporters to your Givebutter campaign page directly.

Customization options 🎨

Looking to customize your Widget or align it to a specific position on your site? You can alter a button's color, styling, and icon, as well as add an align attribute to position your Widget on the left, right, or center or your page. Goal bar Widgets also have configurable options for color and sizing. Read more about our available configuration options β†’

Weebly FAQ πŸ€”

I installed a Widget, but it's not appearing on my Site Editor!
