Donations: New method of payment introduced

New method of payment: Donate with your credit card

Many of you have already supported monkkee with a donation and we are grateful for every single contribution we receive, no matter how small or big. Your donations help us to keep monkkee alive and running and allow us to constantly improve your journaling experience.

In the past, the only way to donate was via PayPal. Those of you familiar with this method of payment have probably noticed the yellow PayPal button:


When clicking on it, you were directed to a pretty straightforward payment site:


From here, you needed a PayPal account to continue. While it is true that many people have a PayPal account, it is certainly not everyone’s preferred payment method. We were often contacted by users willing to donate, but unable to do so without a PayPal account. This is why we have now implemented a new method of payment.

PayPal as service provider, but not necessarily as payment method

As a payment processing service, PayPal supports several payment methods, including credit card payment and direct debit, which is, for example, common in Germany. This means that even if PayPal processes the payment, a PayPal account is not needed. Below you can see monkkee’s new donation button:


The newly designed orange button indicates that everyone, not only PayPal users, can now donate. From here, the donor is directed to the new payment site:


At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a button called “Check Out as a Guest”. This will take you to a page where you can enter your credit card details.


Try it out! The monkkee team greatly appreciates your support!!
