Payments coming through the button, although they're donations, are subject to fees in the Netherlands. 😠

Just to clarify, is that something you've confirmed from Paypal? I'm specifically setting up payments as donations in this widget but it sounds like I might need to put a disclaimer in now that Paypal is adding fees in some countries now.

Hi Mike,

Donate Sidebar is great, I've looked at the full version but it's a bit overkill for me.

However I haven't had a single donation this year via the Donate Sidebar, everything is configured okay but I wondered if the 'total raised progress bar thingy' could perhaps be displayed all the time on the widget, even if it was an option to do so? This might encourage more donations if members and visitors could see if donations are low. Perhaps some members assume others are donating so they don't need to.

Also do you have any plans to support Stripe as I understand it's better than PayPal, or even options for donation themed providers like BuyMeACoffee or crowdfunding sites?

Many thanks.

I'm not sure I understand, if the "enable status bar" setting is enabled. It should constantly show the status bar in the widget to all users then. Is that what you mean?

This should actually be quite easy to include via the "Paypal Override Code" setting. Just enter any custom html you have for Stripe or BuyMeACoffee and it will display that code rather then the Paypal form.

Hi Mike, 

It was enabled but I just realised that my Current Donations Total in AdminCP was 0 out of 1000. I changed it to 5 and it displayed the bar saying 0%. So if you haven't received a donation it doesn't show the bar. So my suggestion would be could it be set to still display if the current donation is at 0 as this might encourage someone to make the first donation.

Aha, that's awesome, thank you! Adds a whole new level!

Works fine, however when you "Enable Paypal Sandbox" you get the above error.

You would need to use the Paypal sandbox account with testing then instead of your real Paypal address.

Is there anyway to make the "Donate Now" button to open a new window?

No not really, I'm building the form in the widget itself.

Is there a way to remove the faded "10.00" that shows in the typing field when the widget is set for the donor to input their own donation amount? 

The easiest way would be to find and edit the "enter_amount" language string in your language manager. Clear the 10.00 value it currently has.
