If you are running a charity or a non-profit organization, it is crucial to have some monetary support from those people who believe you are trying to make this world a better place.

It then becomes necessary to add a PayPal donation button on your website so that your supporters can donate it to either you or the company account.

But before I teach you how to add a PayPal donate button, you need to have an SSL certificate. This certificate makes the connection secure and hackers won’t have the access to supporters’ sensitive details such as credit card number and CVV.

So let’s teach you how to add a PayPal donate button on your WordPress website.
