Installed the plugin, activated it, entered my credentials and tested the form. When I click on submit nothing happens, it just sits there. There is a post in the Support Threads that mentions this from 11 months ago. No response but the thread is closed.

No way to style the plugin or edit the form fields, short of ripping apart the source code, payment gateway does NOT work, simply refreshes the page. No transactions appear through Really worried about using this plugin. BEWARE.

I’ve been using WP-Donate for several years now. It does its job very well, which is providing a payment form that connects with It was easy to customize and add style to the form. It doesn’t need to be updated frequently as some other plugins do. The plugin authors maintain this plugin and respond to inquiries.

I got a project where a site was using this plugin. I was tinkering around, but couldn’t get it to work. Frustrated, I created a blank Wordpress site with the WP Donate plugin to see how it’s supposed to work. I had my test credentials ready, then tried some test transactions, but nothing happened. If you entered a wrong number, you would get the error message. If you entered a correct number, nothing happened: you refreshed the page, but no transactions showed in my summary and nothing was added to the Donor List in the admin settings. I could spend some time figuring out why this isn’t working, since others claim it does, but I will just find something that actually works.

It is simple and easy to use, it will be great if author can provide multiple payment gateway options like paypal, ccavenue, datatrans, etc.. in next update. Else is working good.
