Accepting mobile donations is more important than ever. In fact, 50% of all nonprofit website visits come from users on mobile devices, and those mobile users generate 25% of all revenue!
How supporters can make a Venmo donation on mobile 📱
With Givebutter's Venmo integration, supporters can quickly contribute to your cause straight from their phone or tablet. If supporters want to donate to your cause on a mobile device, they'll simply:
Navigate to your campaign page on their mobile device.
Select Venmo as their donation button (the Venmo app will automatically pop up on their phone).
Fill out their custom donation amount and click finish.
How supporters can make a Venmo donation on desktop 🖥
While Venmo is a mobile app, we understand that not every supporter will be viewing your campaign from their mobile device. That's why we've made it easier for supporters to donate via Venmo from their computer. We launched a feature that allows supporters to easily donate via Venmo through desktop. If a supporter is viewing your campaign page from their desktop, they'll simply click Venmo as their payment option, then:
Scan a QR code (that automatically appears on their desktop screen) with their mobile device.
Authorize Venmo to make their donation.
Complete the checkout process.
Future-proof your fundraising
Givebutter has officially partnered with Venmo and is proud to empower nonprofits and other good causes to accept Venmo donations. Here's what else you can do with Givebutter to fully integrate Venmo into your fundraising strategy:
Enable donors to give in seconds through Venmo on both desktop and mobile devices
Set up Venmo donations on donation forms, fundraising pages, and events
Collect Venmo donations and sell tickets and merchandise
Get started immediately—no Venmo account or additional set-up required to accept Venmo donations from supporters
We were using PayPal as our online platform, and many folks just did not trust it. A huge benefit to Givebutter is the variety of ways to give as well as the option to create an easy text-to-give code, sell tickets, and more. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. Givebutter is not only easy; it makes it very easy to pass on the fees for credit cards to our contributors—or not. They have the choice of covering! Not only can we accept credit, but PayPal and VENMO, which is super important to our younger donors. All of this, and no fees. Zero. No hidden anything.
