How to Create Donation Page for Your Blogger Blog

There are a number of options you can explore and the best of all the options would be to create and design the donation page by yourself. Of course, if you can create the donation page by yourself you would not be here reading this blog post. Since you cannot create the donation page by yourself, that leaves you with only the alternatives.

  1. Hire A Gig
  2. Use Jotform or Similar Services

Hire A Gig to Create your Donation Page

For certain reasons, it is impossible for anyone to teach anyone how to create a standard donation page for blogger blogs unless that person fully understands and know the setup and structure of the theme that's in use on your blogger blog.

Having pointed that out, the next best option that is closer to designing the donation page by yourself is to hire someone to do it for you.

To do that, you can visit and hire one of the several hundreds experts there on that platform to get the job done for you. The service should only cost you between 5 and 25USD.

Use Jotform or Similar Services to Create A Donation Page

Apart from Jotform, there are several other online form services that allow you collect donations through PayPal and Stripe. While this is also a good alternative, I do not reeally favour this option due to a number of reasons that include:

  • Flexibility issues. Even if you are a premium subscriber, it is less likely that you'll be able to design the donation widget to the extent that it conforms with your blogger blog template designs.

  • Speed issues. Due to the reliance of most of these online form services on external resources, more liberaries are downloaded and more loads which eventually mount more pressure on your blog server are inevitable. And as a result, your blog loads even more sluggishly.

  • Responsiveness issues. Another major reason that should be consideered is friendliness. Most of the other options that allow you collect donations from your blogger blog apart from the native options, are not usually mobile friendly.

  • Lastly,Turnover. Blogger blogs that use any other means of accepting donation apart from the native options [of creating donation page using Blogger defaults options] recieve or get lesser donations than supposed.
  • Although, it may be cheaper to use online form services to collecting donations on your Blogger blog, the four shortcomings listed from above are the price you'll have to endure for the reduced cost.


    In all, regardless of whichever option you favoured, the primary goal; creating donation page for your blogger blog would be achieved. While that's like the most important thing, it is very crucial to go for the option that'll give you deserved result; maximum donations.
