1. Create your donation page

First, you’ll need to create and customize your donation page.

Pro-tip: Create a designated page that you will link to your website so you can track what donations you receive from there.

2. Copy the URL to your donation page

The next step is to copy your donation page's link.

All you have to do is:

  1. Navigate to your donation page
  2. Head over to the URL in your browser's address bar
  3. Highlight the entire URL
  4. Copy the link, right click, then click "Copy"

Once you have copied your donation page link, choose the WordPress page that you want to add the button on and go to the editor.

3. Add a button block to your WordPress page
