Fantastic Plugin for Nonprofits!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Thank you so very much! Any possibility of ever adding a progress tracker for fundraising for specific funds - would be greatly appreciated. This looks and tracks so much better than messy paypal code.

Very helpfull plugin - needs a couple things
By ,

I really like this plugin. It does what it says it will in a simple way. I'm excited to hear that it will continue in development.

Here are a couple items that would make it even better:

  • a simple way to add new donation levels - now the only way is to alter a php file which is wiped during an upgrade
  • A way to change the text in the form - like above if I want to change some wording it has to be in the php file
  • Custom fields - I just wanted to add in the form a check box that declared that the donation was for a sponsorship or not.
kinda glad it's been abandoned...

I had made a modified(somewhat improved) version for a client. I thought all was good and that my changes would NOT be over written.

I had even created a "must-use plugin" with -

add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_false' );

And that wasn't enough. Either wordpress ignores it or the plugin did.

This plugin is a good starting point for accepting donations. However, there are a few things I would change (as a new wordpress site admin) :

1. prohibit automatic updates - I needed to make some customizations and the plugin automatically updated itself and wiped out all of my changes.

2. allow for custom data fields and labels - For example, the group I'm assisting wants a single amount of $25.

3. optionally disable or bypass ALL paypal interaction - I trust that paypal interactions work correctly, but I want to customize thank-you pages, emails, logs, and not require a paypal sandbox.

4. allow for an additional form - the group I'm assisting needs one "donation" page and one for membership and/or event registrations. It would be helpful if I could use the same plugin for both. Then the look and feel would be consistent. It would also be helpful if the additional form(s) would create separate or distinguishable log entries. I'm not sure at this time if the additional forms will require the use of a separate paypal account.

Please note that I am new to wordpress and may not be aware of capabilities related to what I noted above. However I have experience in PHP, HTML, and some java. So with guidance I can figure things out and make changes as needed.


Nicely Done, Works Beautifully

Fine plugin, works perfectly. Highly recommended. Worth a good donation.

Would be perfect if not for a big flaw...
By , for WP 4.0.1

This would be an excellent donations plugin if it didn't output such needlessly complex and incorrect HTML. There are paragraph elements surrounding every form element, labels are not wrapped around the inputs they describe (although the "for" attribute is set for each one so it's not a total loss), and there are tons of things missing for accessibility reasons. Not to mention that, within the admin, you can't put customized amounts for the donation amounts. If those things got fixed, this would be a 5-star plugin.

why make it so hard to find the shortcode?
By ,

nice form lots of cool stuff and form options but you only find the shortcode once you go to their FAQ page! There would be less "Q's" if it was on the first page, it's useless without the shortcode but the hardest thing to find.

Thank you for making a plugin

Perfect Plugin
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin was exactly what I needed for my charity website.

Almost all features are covered
By ,

I was looking for some features like detailed information of doners along with donate button.And Seamless Donations is perfect plugin for it.

Perfect donations plugin!
By , for WP 4.0

After looking long and hard at many other donations plugins (many of which are premium versions), Seamless Donations does everything I need it to do in a clear, compact and easy to use format.

It offers one time and recurring monthly donations, set donation amounts and 'enter your own' amounts, donor information collection (emails address, first and last name, address, etc), thank you emails, paypal integration...the list goes on.

Well done, keep up the fantastic work!
