Does anyone know a site that allows a 15 year old to add a widget/site to add to my website that allows people to donate to 'Keep the Site Going' as it were. I have a debit card by the way.

Hello,

Yola has a PayPal "Donate" button widget in the site builder, under the "Ecommerce" category in the widget sidebar.

You could put some text before the button such as "Help keep this site going by donating" if you use the Donate button.

I hope this helps.

Edit: since you're under 18, you could have your parents/guardians set up a paypal account if they don't already and accept donations via that account, if that would work for you (since you need a checking account to get a paypal account).

Hi Nathan, thanks for the reply, are you aware of any services that allow under 18's to sign up without consent?

Hi Sam,
You may be best asking your parents/guardians to assist you with adding such option to your website. Another suggestion would be to use your preferred search engine such as Google to look for an alternative. We do not have any offhand to share with you, however, we are quite certain that you need to be 18 to set up this feature regardless of the platform.
