PayPal Donation :: Fundraising Tool

I had an idea for a script that takes the PayPal donation button and turns it into a powerful marketing tool. I created the script and a service and named it DonationBooster.

What it does is allow you to create a fundraising campaign with a goal and output code that creates a thermometer style graph on your website. As donations are received, the meter increases towards the goal. If you or someone you knows needs to increase donations from their website, check out the tool and sign up for the free service!

Thank you!

It has been quite fun to manage and see how people use it. Even if you have a small site, it is fun to get donations of $1-5 for doing nothing. I imagine if you had a good cause, you might get even bigger contributions. I use the graph on one of my sites and the largest donation I have received is $10. Give it a try!

Very old thread. Please try to avoid unnecessarily topping threads that are more than a couple of months old.

Lightbulb PayPal Donation Meter

Service seems not to be working any more which is a shame

However there is another one at PayPal Donation Meter - http://www.PayPalDonationMeter.com

Its $4.95 but that allows you to use the script on upto 3 different websites and you can have the script posted multiple times on the site to collect donations for multiple different reasons, it even allows you to display the name of each donor and what they donated for the last x numbr of donors

Pretty cool

Hope this helps

Should get your facts straight, paypal does not give you anything free other than a button for donations

What i am talking about is a thermometer style image or custom designed image that changes based on the total donations and a php script that updates a database with all the donations as they are made

Thats what is being paid for

Why would anyone be dumb enough to try and sell just a paypal button lol

Read things better before you comment in future and you will not make such mistakes lol

Hey all, PayPalDonationMeter.com have just come out with a great new hosted version of their script.

So even if you do not have PHP or MySQL on your server you can still use the script.

With the new hosted version they give you unlimited donation meters for use on unlimited websites all for a low monthly or yearly fee, they even have a lifetime membership option which is really great value, they allow you to brand the donation meter image with your own text too, pretty sweet.

They allow you to generate a small piece of code to copy onto your site to display your donation meter image and your PayPal donation button

Check it our Hosted Donation Meter - http://www.PayPalDonationMeter.com/h...tion-meter.php

Dont miss out on the current 50% discount they are running, im sure it wont last long!

PayPal Donation Meter

PayPal donation meter shows the right data with the help of the graphs and the charts. Its presentation is very striking which makes its visitors to give donation.
