How to setup a Donation page

With Feather, you can receive donations via a website page! This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to set this page up.

First, you’ll need to make a designated website page for readers to donate. By going to your wp-admin and clicking “Pages”, you can do this by selecting “Add New”.

After creating and designing your page, you’ll want to implement the ability for readers to donate. In your wp-admin, click “Feather” in the bar on the left-hand-side. Next, when you see the section “Embedded Donations HTML”, copy the body of code under this. You can see an example in the image below.

Next, you can go back to the page you created and edit it. On the upper-right side above the editor, click “Text” and paste this code where suitable. The image below serves as an example, where the options to subscribe would appear on top of the page.

Press “Update” or “Publish on the top-right of the page, and you are good to go! Your readers can now subscribe to you via a page as well, without having to read an article to do so.

👆 Note: if you’d like readers to be able to both subscribe and donate, you can choose to do this in the same page or in a different one. To do this, you can follow the same steps as above, with the “Embedded Subscriptions HTML”. If you’d like to read how to do this step-by-step instead, here’s our guide!

Adjust it to your preferences

You can configure the text that is displayed in the wallet, by editing the following (tip: write your desired text in between single quotation marks):

• data-donations-message-headline=’write text here
• data-donations-message-text=’write text here

If you’d like to configure the donation suggestions, you can edit the following (note: enclose your desired text in single quotation marks and separate each amount with a comma):

• data-donate-suggestions=’1,5,10,20
