New DonorPerfect Online Forms Now Integrate with PayPal and Venmo
Allowing digital donations reduces checkout friction and increases conversions, studies say
DATE: November 1, 2022
(Fort Washington, PA) DonorPerfect, a leading fundraising platform for nonprofits, has released its new-and-improved DonorPerfect Online Forms feature, allowing organizations to collect donations digitally via PayPal and Venmo in the US.
This new functionality was developed to empower DonorPerfect clients to reduce checkout friction on their online donation forms, thus improving their form conversion rate, and turning supporters into loyal donors.
Research shows that including PayPal as a payment option on your online donation forms can dramatically increase unplanned gifts (by 32%)1 and repeat donations (by 79%).2 PayPal users are nearly four times (3.7x)3 as likely to donate when PayPal is an option, and 88 percent of them believe it’s the safest way to donate.4
The new DonorPerfect Online Forms reduce checkout friction and provide more benefits to nonprofits in 3 ways:
- Supporters can submit their donations on their desktop, mobile, or tablet device, without using a physical bank card. Donors are able to check out using their PayPal or Venmo accounts.
- Donors no longer have to bear the burden of entering their card or contact information. By signing in to their payment account, they can carry over their payment information without entering it manually.
- Nonprofit organizations can capture accurate donor information, which will then be automatically updated in their DonorPerfect system.
In April, DonorPerfect released the new DonorPerfect Donation Forms to beta clients for feedback. Shannon Chalfont-Jones, Marketing Manager at The Point Arc, shared, “We are really excited about the comments from our donors saying how easy and intuitive the form is. It’s honestly overwhelming how many people have said it. It’s such a drastic improvement from the older form!”
