Site donations/contributions


#1

Hi,

I run a small PC gaming website here at DM using the CDI package. I would like to upgrade to the Sweet Dreams package but just don’t have the cash availble.

The reason for wanting to upgrade is so that I can host the gaming files I promote myself. I would like to put a PayPal donate button on my site but feel that is a little tacky and I often have serious doubts about donating that way.

My website has a good supportive reader base who may want to contribute to the running costs.

So here is my question, is there a way for me to put some kind of “donate/contribute” button on my site that would go straight into my dreamhost account? This way readers can feel confident that any contribution they made was seen to be going into my hosting account not my pocket!

I would love to set a target and have a live countdown visual.

I envisge that the total money would be used for the next invoice.
There are a few issue to iron out but I feel both parties could benefit:
I can offer readers a save way to contribute and DH gets cash to put in the bank BEFORE my account is due.

I’m interested to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

TIA

Doh!

I should have looked. Thank you for not taking the opportunity to ridicule me (I would have deserved it though!)
