If you run a WordPress website and want to or already accepting donations you know it’s not the easiest task to handle.
There are different plugins you can use for this purpose, but they’re not developed exclusively to work for specifically donation. Different tools such as carts systems and various technologies can be confusing for both you as a webmaster and donors.
Previously there’s not been a specific single go-to solution for accepting donations in WordPress. Now there is!
