[TUTORIAL] Integration WhyDonate's Free Donate Button

Hello community :wave:,

In this tutorial, I will be explaining how to add WhyDonate’s Free Donate Button on your Webflow website. This plugin allows you to add donate buttons, forms, and even complete crowdfunding campaigns to your website. The visitor will be able to complete the full payment process on your website.

Integrate the WhyDonate plugin by following these steps:

  1. First, you would need to register on WhyDonate.nl and make sure you create a fundraiser campaign. While creating a fundraiser you will get the option to add a target amount, end date and show the amount donated. This will also reflect on your plugin.

  2. Go to the fundraiser page you created on WhyDonate. Under the ‘Share’ button you should be able to see the ‘Embed’ option. You need to click it.

  3. When you reach the ‘Embed’ screen you will be able to change all the settings, like :paintbrush:plugin appearance and :link:redirect url’s.

  4. When you are done changing the settings, you can copy the HTML script and paste it to your website in an embed component. The plugin will appear on the exact same spot on your page.
