With the season of giving upon us, there will be a number of good causes out there that will need help accepting donations. PayPal is probably one of the easiest ways for an individual or organization to start receiving online donations, but not all WordPress PayPal plugins are created the same.
Donate Extra is a plugin that goes beyond just a simple donation button. It includes several advanced features such as the ability to accept recurring donations, anonymous donations, and integration with PayPal’s IPN.
The Donate Extra form can be placed on your donation page using a shortcode.
One of the most charming features of this plugin is the donation recognition wall that can be set to display donors on a page via a shortcode or within a widget.
Donate Extra includes sidebar widgets for the displaying the total donations, recognition wall and the donation form. It also has a built in donations management screen in the admin for viewing donor information, dates, totals and comments. You can also customize a thank you email and even use a custom image for your donation button. The settings page has a wide range of options for controlling the plugin’s display. Make your selections and then put it in testing mode to try a donation.
Donate Extra is one of the more flexible PayPal donation plugins available for WordPress. Download it for free from the WordPress plugin repository.
