OSDonate Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
OSDonate was the first Paypal Donate Button for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.x. We have also made it available for Joomla 1.5. It's packed with features, it's simple to use, and it even hovers in a fixed position on the page (optional)! It's a great choice for anyone who wants their donation button noticed. The hover feature is especially useful for someone who wants a full page layout, such as Joomla developers who have a forum and can't put a donate button in a regular module position because of "lack of space".

Main Features:

-Easy to Setup
-Integrates with Paypal
-Lots of Options (if needed)
-Hovers/Floats on page while scrolling! (Optional)
-Adjustable distances from edge of screen
-Inserts within Article (Optional)
-Customizable intro text (Optional)
-Success return page
-Cancel return page
-Company logo within Paypal's Donation Form
-Customizable Paypal description within Paypal's Donation Form
-Standard or adjustable donation amount
-Currency selector
-Full language file for easy translation
-Responsive Design

Easy to configure, clean css
Very easy to configure. Lets you put your logo or other graphic in the PayPal interface which is great.

Nick in support was great when I had an issue with the load module positioning in Joomla 2.5.

Very good component and great support.

Very easy to configure. Lets you put your logo or other graphic in the PayPal interface which is good stuff.

There support for a free extension is really cool.

I used this in Joomla 2.5 and pulled it into an article using the loadpostion code. Initially that caused the PayPal account to not be credited correctly. Their tech support gave the solution.
If you are using the module in an article, you can add the emailcloak equals off code in front of the loadposition code and voila!

Very good component and spot on support.

First time writing one of these, dont normally but just had to this time..
This menu works great, I had a question while setting up the menu on my Joomla 3.1 site and Nick emailed back quickly and my question was answered, even though the template was causing the issue. For free software that works really well, never had a problem with 2.5 version EVER either, the support was really very impressive. Good job Nick and thanks...

If you need a simple quick to use donate extension then this is the one.
A simple configuration screen, that is self explanatory and intuitive.
If you want something with Facebook integration, payment methods other than Paypal, or a count of donations to date, then you will need something more advanced.

I was really not confident to get instant support from Nick for including Indian currency INR in OSDonate as i was having problem in my site as the extention was not showing INR in the currencies supported BUT NICK proved me wrong.He not only addressed my problem but personally took interest and mailed me the solution. Now i m able to use INR in OSDonate.
Overall & above all the Joomla community should be thankful to NICK for his outstanding contribution to Joomla!!!

I have no need for support because it works like a charm. Everything is configurable, and it shows very well.

Just 1 issue: "Amount" label is the only text to localize, so I hope developer will do it traducible from backend without having to edit 2 files (undocumented too).

I am a marketing guy and not a techy guy and this was one of the easiest programs to install and configure. I liked the flexibility it offered to have it float and the options to turn on and off the feature with a check box. Very easy and works perfectly. Nice job guys!

I've been using the OS Donate module on a site for about 6 months now. It was incredibly easy to set up: I just used the Joomla Extension Manager to upload it, created a module that uses it, and populated a couple properties. When a user clicks on the button in the module, it goes to a PayPal screen that allows them to complete the transaction. It couldn't be any simpler. And it works!

This was everything- and more- that I needed. When I had a little trouble with Joomla's email clocking plugin- they were right there to sort it all out. Excellent support, which is all important.

This is a really cool extention. It worked perfect and was really easy to install. I had a simple question that I should have been able to figure out myself. I sent in a request for help and They were very friendly and responded right away. I really LOVE OSDonate and will be looking at the other products this company offers. Thanks!

I have looked at all the paypal modules available here that are non-commercial and this one has the best set of options.
There are just 2 things I would like to have.
1- the ability to set a recurring payment for those dedicated donors but I could live without this.
2- The ability to show who has donated and how much has been donated over a period of time like per month. Included with that should be the ability for a donor to be anonymous and not have his name show on the site.

Thank you so much, just what I was looking for. I was able to add an image of my own that really added the touch I wanted.

I was searching a lot for a usable donation module until I found OSDonate. Absolute simple to use but it gave me a powerful donation-modul.
The best is the support for it. Very fast, direct and helpful. Because I wanted to use my own donation-buttom the made a change and sent me a version that did what I want.
Very good service ..
This is worth of 5 point.
