    The best thing about paypal was that you could almost effortlessly transfer $ when you needed to. Now with this widget, the word almost disappears 😉 This is one of the basic widgets, but one of the most useful as well. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    It’s looks gret but I don’t think many people will use that. I mean not everyone has users dedicated enough to just donate money. They’d rather just click couple ads here and there.

    I think part of me is a little reserved about asking for donations…I really don’t know why, though. Steve Pavlina put a donations button on his website, and he said that a good amount of his site’s income comes from that.

    I never thought the donation buttons actually attracted anyone to donate money…do you find that people actually donate?

  • Nasir

    I was about to get this widget but after reading a couple of posts I realise that indeed just putting that widget wont get you any money. Now, the only guys who would get the money through donations would be some higher up guys. <br />Therefore, thank you, but no thanks.

    As I understand it, it only for charity raising funds for a specific cause only.<br /><br />And you need permier or business account to access your funds.<br /><br />Otherwise paypal might frose your account.
