If your nonprofit or cause depends on donations, you want to treat your donors right. Don’t send them through a shopping cart or kick them off-site to a third-party platform. GiveWP streamlines the giving process by allowing your donors to complete their donations directly on your website using an easy to complete donation form. As an admin, you have the customization options and reporting and donor management features you need in order to run successful giving campaigns.
You may have struggled with other WordPress donation plugins in the past; dealing with the lack of features, documentation, and support can be a real pain. There’s a better way. Now you have GiveWP and our entire team on your side.
Our development and support team built GiveWP from day one with best practices in WordPress development and online giving in mind. GiveWP works great — the “WordPress way” so you’re already familiar with the interface once you begin using it.
The strength of GiveWP lies within its optimized donation forms. When creating a form you may specify whether the form is a single or multi-level amounts. As well, you can allow donors to give a custom amount if you wish. The donation forms can then be displayed anywhere on your website using a shortcode, widget, or the single donation form page. Simply install and activate the plugin to get started.
For new users, we suggest reviewing our documentation to get an understanding of how the plugin works. If you run into any trouble, we offer free support to help you with your issues, questions, and concerns.
If you are a GiveWP customer with an active license of any of our popular add-ons, we’d love to hear from you and support you via our Priority Support channel.

Are you a developer? GiveWP is fully extendable. We built in an advanced templating system similar to the ones found in many of WordPress’ top plugins that makes customizing many of GiveWP’s frontend elements upgrade proof and extremely flexible. Run into some trouble? We’re here to help! Along with the plugin is a support team that is dedicated, fast to respond, and always willing to squash bugs and help troubleshoot.

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of GiveWP, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click “Add New”.
In the search field type “GiveWP” and click Search Plugins. Once you have found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.
The manual installation method involves downloading our donation plugin and uploading it to your server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.
Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Form plugins are excellent solutions for general intake forms. That said, they most often lack substantial donation reporting features, and donor management options. They also lack a variety of presentation options like GiveWP has for embedding your forms in different places throughout your site. If you want a “Donate Now!” button in the header of your site that opens in a modal, you’ll most often have to do quite a bit of customization to get that working just right with form plugins — but not with GiveWP.
GiveWP works great alongside all the most popular form plugins. Use GiveWP for donations, and Caldera Forms, Ninja Forms, Gravity Forms or other for your general purpose intake forms. They’ll work great alongside each other.
We actually built GiveWP specifically to overcome many of the hurdles you have to go through in order to get an eCommerce plugin (like WooCommerce) to be streamlined for donations. You want to treat your donors right. No donor wants to add their donation to a cart and go through several page refreshes just to type their information in. You, as the site admin, don’t want to have to change the word “Products” to “Donations” everywhere, and go through all the hoops of removing taxes and shipping either.
On top of that, customizing the plugin’s terminology is a daunting task. You never want your users to receive an “invoice” for the donation “product” they “purchased”. Rather, you’d like for them to receive a receipt for the donation they gave.
Use GiveWP for donations, and let yourWooCommerce or WP eCommerce pluginor the like handle your products. They work alongside each other just fine. Your donors will be happy, your customers will be happy, and so will you.
Additionally, you can use our Donation Upsells for WooCommerce GiveWP add-on to allow your customers to do a donation upsell in the cart or checkout as well.
The 2% fee on Stripe donations only applies to donations taken via our free Stripe integration in GiveWP Core. If you purchase the premium Stripe add-on you will not have any additional fees at all. Additionally, even with the free Stripe plugin, the fees only apply to one-time donations, never to recurring donations.
