Donation Platform for WooCommerce: Fundraising & Donation Management: Motivation

Why does the world need this WooCommerce donation plugin?
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.

Thank you for using 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

How can I generate donation receipts automatically?

☀️ 6️⃣ 16, 2024
Works out of the box. plugin author is very actively maintaining this surprisingly feature-rich and effective crowdfunding solution. saved me $349/yr off of a GiveWP :O or $279/yr off of a WooCommerce Subscription–also :O (in order to add recurring donations to my platform, those were the plans I was deciding between, before I found this Free, open-source solution, today)! Thank You Very Much for helping democratize this critical ecommerce functionality (crowdsourcing / fundraising / recurring billing). I’m a *huge* proponent of open-source projects–especially ones such as this that are so actively maintained. Thank You, again, very much!
