You can get the PayPal link in the administration panel and use it to create a widget and link for members to donate to the forum.

No paypal don't have the use of your ACP the tech team have removed it in some forums as paypal have made a rule to only let some parts of the world use the tool so the team took it on them self to remove it from them listed by paypal.

I think if you make a donate button on a new paypal account you can pick if you want the money to go in your bank or stay in your paypal account but not 100% sure.

Hello dear all,
@SLGray do you know where can I find the paypal link that which it is connected to my forum?

@APE do you know how paypal is working on our forums or which parts must be available to enable it?
I have been confused because I didn't understand their criteria. Sad

If you still have it, it would be in the AP > Misc. > Credits Management > Buy Credits.

You can use the link for PayPal in the AP and create one for your members.

I believe PayPal has changed things and so has Forumotion. I believe this option is no longer good to use. I mean using the link form the AP.

Hello Van helsing,

Do you mean you want to enable donations in the footer for members? Or just in the admin panel?

If you mean the footer, then if you have a new forum (atleast 2015 or sooner) then the option to put a donation link the footer will not appear because forumotion has officially done away with this option on all new forums.

Most older forums that created before the change went into effect a couple years back, will stay have the option. No new forums do though.

Buying credits is only possible for admins through the admin panel on newer forums now.

Hi Brandon,
Yes exactly that I mean the link on footer for the members' donations I was created a my new forum about before a year. So as I am undestanding this option is unable to be activated on my new forum. Sad

So in this case I will visit paypal's developers center to find all of the necessary details to develop my donate widget for my forum to resolve this as there is no solution available.

Thank you vey much all for all the providing infos about this issue.

That is correct, at some point (I dont know when, but it was atleast 2015), forumotion decided to do away with this option for all new forums and only the older forums still have it.

That said, yes unfortunatelly that feature is unavailable for new forums, however, you can create your own paypal donation button if you want. I am not sure how to do this exactly, but I know it can be done.
