    Hi

    Love the look of your plug in and great to see it will include GBP soon.

    Here in the UK if someone is a tax payer we can claim gift aid as a charity- is this something you could look at adding to your plugin please.

    Thanks

    Hi! GBP support is in with version 2.8.1

    Can you tell me more about what you would need seamless donations to do for gift aid? A checkbox for UK donors to check that says they are a tax payer? Something else?

    Cheers...

    Hi

    thanks for reply - for gift aid we would need a check box to say that they are a UK tax payer and are happy for the charity to claim gift aid - copied this off the government website http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/charities/gift_aid/declarations.htm

    Using your own Gift Aid declaration form - information needed by HMRC
    As a minimum, all Gift Aid declarations your charity or CASC receives must contain the following information:
    the name of your charity or CASC
    the donor's name - as a minimum the initial of the first name and the last name in full
    the donor's home address - as a minimum the house number/name and postcode
    whether the declaration covers only the present donation or past and/or future donations as well
    a statement or verbal confirmation by the donor that Gift Aid is to apply - on a written form or on a website, a tick box is sufficient
    confirmation the donor has been given an explanation that they must pay at least as much UK income tax and/or capital gains tax (for the year of the donation) as the amount that will be claimed by your charity or CASC and any other charities and CASCs they donate to.
    HMRC has produced a checklist which shows all the information you need to include in your charity’s Gift Aid declarations on one page.

    Really appreciate your help on this as I have been looking for sometime for the solution to this on the website

    Done! You can find the feature (for UK donors) in version 3.0.0 (along with an important bug fix.)

    Cheers...

    Hi,

    I have downloaded Seamless Donations and am really happy with it however I can't seem to find the gift aid selection box. Are you able to tell me how I can show the gift aid option on the form?

    Thanks
