The PayPal Donation Button Is Easy To Use

The PayPal Donation Plugin is easy to install and works well with my WordPress site.
I also use PayPal in Commerce of several and even for selling individual items.
The PayPal options are more preferable for my customers.

Great plugin and developer

UPDATED REVIEW: This plugin is lightweight yet robust, does what you’d need it to at slightly better than basic level for a FREE Paypal donation/fundraising plugin.
Also, when there are issues, the developer is quick to respond and resolve the problems, Thanks!
