Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management: Motivation

Why does the world need this donation & fundraising plugin for WooCommerce?
Hands down, WooCommerce is the most mature eCommerce solution. It is supported by all other major systems (CRM, Analytics, Marketing, Accounting and more) and offers numerous possibilities to customize the behavior to your needs.

So it doesn’t make sense to reprogram all the features already implemented by WooCommerce for a donation and fundraising platform again and worse. Instead, you just customize the look and in some places the behavior of WooCommerce and you get a comprehensive fundraising, crowdfunding, crowdsourcing and donation solution for your charity.

FAQ

Thank you for being an early adopter of Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management! I’m working hard to improve your experience and add new features. If you find any issues, please reach out to me to ask any questions or file feature requests.

Will my theme work with Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management?

Probably. Unfortunately, many themes add a lot of custom styles to the WooCommerce checkout, some of them may compete with the CSS of Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management and you get weird results.

Will my WooCommerce extension work with Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management?

Probably. I cannot test every WooCommerce extension out there. Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management uses WooCommerce filters & actions to change the behaviour and appearance of WooCommerce. When other plugins also use these hooks they may interfere with each other.

Does Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management support every WooCommerce feature?

No. For now it primarily focuses on customer facing behaviour and appearance that is crucial for the donation & fundraising platform.

Why is only one donation form allowed per page?

Since WooCommerce and other plugins like payment gateways don’t assume that there are multiple checkouts on a page, you might run into problems otherwise.

How can I set up recurring donations?

To set up recurring donations, please also install Subscriptions for WooCommerce (free plugin) or WooCommerce Subscriptions (premium extension). Here you can find detailed instructions on how to set up recurring donations: Set up recurring donations

Shortcodes is what makes this plugin apart from the rest. You can design almost any page you want. It's free but development is quite slow. So why not sell next addons listed on your roadmap for a one-time fee...
August 20, 2022
I'm really happy i found this plugin while I'm developing our donation sites for the community. It covers most of the aspect needed to make a usable donation sites, and right now it is absolutely free to use. The donation plugin is flexible to use on many use case for donation sites. We can set default amount and also gives user the freedom to input the specific amount they want, simple checkout process and more.
