Automatically send donations to your campaign creators with Charitable & Stripe Connect.
Charitable Stripe Connect is designed to work as a complement to our Stripe and Ambassadors extensions. It allows people to create campaigns on your website and receive donations into their Stripe account automatically. You can charge a platform fee on every donation.
Stripe Connect is used to power payments for platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. It provides a secure and seamless way to handle multi-party payments and supports sellers/fundraisers in any country where Stripe operates (see countries). With our plugin, you can take advantage of Stripe Connect on your WordPress website.
How does it work?
When you use Charitable Stripe Connect, your website facilitates payments between donors and campaign creators. Instead of all funds raised going into a central account (the default with Charitable Ambassadors), people can create campaigns on your website and connect their own Stripe account. After that, all donations to their campaign are automatically paid to them.
You can also charge a percentage as a platform fee for each donation.
What does the integration look like for campaign creators?
When a new campaign creator submits their campaign, they will automatically be redirected to Stripe, where they can register an account or login to their existing account.
Once the campaign creator has connected their Stripe account, they are redirected back to your website.
Charitable Stripe Connect provides a shortcode that can be used to display a user’s Stripe Connect status, including a link to connect their account if they have not already.
The user’s Stripe Connect status is also integrated into the output of the profile form added with
Note: If you’re familiar with Stripe Connect you may know that there are several different account type integrations possible. Charitable Stripe Connect currently only supports Standalone account.
