PeepSo GiveWP Integration GPL
Raise money online from the comfort of your own Community!
Fundraising can be a great way to engage people in a collective, beneficial activity, while gaining the means to realize a project or a campaign. We like to contribute to something we care about, and if it’s presented in the very hub of our interests, it works all the better.
PeepSo’s Integration with the popular GiveWP donation plugin provides exactly this opportunity – the donations system right inside your community. You’ll be able to raise money exactly where the interest is the greatest and where it matters the most.
GiveWP is a free WordPress plugin designed to provide beautiful donation forms and a comprehensive donations system that is transparent, discrete, and easy to use. Now you can make use of it in your PeepSo-powered community and benefit from more user engagement and contributions, in an unposed form of eCommerce.
The integration takes place in PeepSo Configuration, where you can set it up however you like, for the best display in your community. Users can see their donations and donation details in their profiles, and individual donations can be automatically posted on the activity stream. Given the nature of these investments, only users themselves can see the amount of their contribution.
The Power of a Cause
At some point we’ve all voluntarily invested in some cause that was important to us, whether as a small contribution or a significant monetary push – depending on our circumstances. This action gains even more importance when done collectively, in a community where people with common interests motivate each other.
When collecting donations, people usually resort to third party crowdfunding channels. But as an owner of a community, your goal is to keep your users right there in the community, not redirect them outside. “Middlemen” such as Patreon, GoFundMe and the like, all require additional registration, and their purpose is to draw as many users as possible. In a way, they’re distancing your users from you – and profit from it.
This is why the implementation of a donation system in your own community is incredibly important. The more benefits you provide, the more your users are invested in the community, and the more new users will be drawn.
The fundraising campaign itself can be anything that reaches out to your people: environment, health, charity, events… It can even be a kickstarter, a project that closely concerns community functioning and development. And if your community is home to talented content creators (one of which may be you), donations can help finance their growth and good work.
