7. IPN and PDT > 79. Display Donation Goals on Your Web Site

Display Donation Goals on Your Web Site

Use donation buttons and IPN to display actively updated donation goals.

As a web site owner, you might want to provide information or entertainment to your visitors without charging for the service or cluttering up your site with advertising. However, you might also need funds to pay site expenses or to support a worthy cause. The PayPal Donate Now button enables webmasters to collect payments from willing donors.

Donation buttons on web sites do not give visitors much information apart from the cause to which they are donating. Contributors have no idea how many other people have donated or how much has been raised already. Visitors might be more inclined to donate once they know others have, or if they believe their donation will make a difference in achieving a goal for a fund drive. Providing donation goals and a tally of the amount collected to date can induce potential donors to contribute—and contribute in larger amounts.
