Edit Your Donation Page Details

Review the Donation Settings and make the adjustments you would like to see on your Donation Page.Comment with Donation - Supporters can leave a public comment when they donate. This shows up in your campaign page's activity feed.

Anonymous Donation - Supporters have the option to donate anonymously. This will withhold their identity from any public-facing activity feed. Their identity will only be visible to you for reporting purposes. 

Contact Opt-In Checkbox - Supporters can choose whether or not they want to receive future communications from your organization. 

  • Your organization is responsible for adjusting your communications based on these responses. To see whether a donor has opted in or out you can create a report with the information. To do so, click on the Reports tab and create a transactions report. Then click the columns button to sort for the opt in information. Additionally, if you use our MailChimp Integration, this checkbox dictates which new contacts will sync over to your MailChimp account as well. 

Simple Billing Address - If enabled, a single autocomplete field will replace the standard billing address fields. This enables your supporters to move through the donation process faster with a higher likelihood of completion.

  • Please note that customers who use address verification (AVS) through Braintree or Authorize.net should not enable Simple Billing Address. You will need to change your address verification settings in your Braintree or Authorize.net account if you'd like to enable the feature.

Classy Mode - This setting gives supporters the option to cover your transaction fees so that you receive 100% of the donation amount. You can edit the appeal text to encourage supporters to cover the fee. To learn more about Classy Mode here
