Enabling PayPal for Regular Giving
Whilst you can easily accept regular donations via credit card using Stripe, if you want to use PayPal for regular donations, you will need to enable it.
Regular giving using PayPal is a feature allowing your donors to commit to donating on a regular schedule using PayPal as the payment method.
Enabling PayPal regular giving allows donors to support your charity from their linked credit, debit or other payment accounts where they can track their donations and not worry about sharing their full financial information.
How to enable this new option
- The API used to facilitate regular giving via Paypal is a by request only feature so to apply for this the client simply needs an active Paypal business account and then please email the PayPal Australia Business Development team at Paypal firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to have the Funraisin Regular Giving feature enabled on your account
- Add in the new API credentials - once approved by Paypal, clients can lodge a support ticket in their Funraisin admin to send us their new API credentials for us to update for them
- Once in place, admins will be able to simply enable regular giving on any of your donation or crowdfunding pages and the donor will be able to choose from either donating via Credit card or Paypal
