Donate Link

The Donate Link component enables you to create trackable links that can be used on your website, in social media posts, and even in places where the Fundraise Up installation code is not present. This makes it especially useful for creating referral links that can be shared with donors and corporate sponsors.

Generated URL

When you create a Donate Link, a unique tracking URL is generated. By default, the domain used for the URL is donorsupport.co. When a custom domain is added to Donor Portal, that domain is used instead to generate Donate Link URLs.

Example:

1https://donate.ropsi.org/-/XWZBZUBB

This is a Donate Link URL generated from within Fundraise Up. In this example, because the custom domain, donate.ropsi.org, has been added for Donor Portal, the URL is generated using the custom domain.

Custom domains: If you add a custom domain to Fundraise Up, avoid changing it. If you add a new custom domain, links generated using the previous domain will stop working.

Behavior

These settings control the configuration that Checkout launches with when the component is interacted with.

  • Open campaign: Dropdown selector to determine which Campaign the component should be connected to
  • Frequency: The donation mode that Checkout should launch with
    • Match Checkout settings: Launch Checkout using the default frequency option set for its Campaign
    • Default one time: Launch Checkout and preselect the one-time donation option
    • Default recurring: Launch Checkout and preselect the recurring donation option
  • Designation: The designation that should be preselected when Checkout is launched
    • Match Checkout settings: Launch Checkout using the default designation option set for its Campaign
    • [Other options]: If other designations are enabled for the connected Checkout, you can select the designation that should be preselected when Checkout is launched
  • Default amount: The donation amount that will be prefilled in Checkout when it is launched.
    • Match Checkout setting: Launch Checkout using the default donation amount set for its Campaign
    • Customize: This option enables you to define a custom donation amount that will be prefilled in the donation amount input for Checkout when it is launched.
      • Allow donor to change selected donation amount: When selected, this option enables a donor to modify the donation amount input in Checkout that was preset in a Donate Link’s component settings.
  • URL: This is the destination where Checkout will attempt to launch. The Fundraise Up installation code must be active on the destination website. In many cases, you can default to launching Checkout on your website’s homepage, but customizing the URL is useful for launching Checkout on a specific page or attaching UTM parameters to the URL.

Custom fields

When custom fields have been added to a selected Campaign’s Checkout, they appear as a customization option for many Elements components. This enables you to set field values that are specific to multiple components associated with the same Campaign.
