In order to receive monetary donations through the Brownie Points platform, you will need to set up donations for your nonprofit organisation. Currently, Brownie Points makes use of three different payment methods through the platform, which will appear as donation options to supporters for donation causes: 

  • External donation link(s) - To redirect supporters to another site that already has a payment option setup for your organisation e.g. your website's donate page, or a fundraising campaign on another platform.
  • Bank account details - So your supporters can pay their donations directly into the organisation's bank account.
  • Ozow - To enable 100% donations to go directly into your nonprofit's bank account via instantEFT. No setup or transaction fees.

If your organisation already has an online payment option set up on a different website, you can add a link to this page for your Brownie Points supporters. This will redirect supporters for all your donation causes after they click Donate and confirmed how much they commit to donating.

To add external donation link(s):

  1. Go to your Organisations
  2. Click on Edit details (for the organisation you would like to add donation links for)
  3. Scroll down to Donations and click Add new link
  4. In another page on your internet browser, navigate over to the page where your organisation has an existing payment option or link and copy the URL or web address. 
  5. Navigate back to the Edit organisation page on Brownie Points and paste the URL or web address into the field in the Donations section
  6. Scroll down and click Update organisation to save changes

Note: You can add multiple links by clicking on the Add new link button.
