How To Start


  • Add a Link or Button

    With the Click & Pledge payment system you may create and use an unlimited number of checkout pages for donations, selling products, memberships, event registrations and more. In this article we discuss how to add a checkout page link or button to your website (or blog, social networks, etc.). There are no limits on the number of checkout pages you may create and use. Each checkout page has a unique address identified by last digits of the link called WID (short for Window ID).

    For example, here is a link to a checkout page from a Click & Pledge demonstration account:
    The last digits of the link =8375 is the WID number of this payment page. As previously stated each checkout page you create will have its own unique WID number.

    By default all new accounts are set up with a Classic donation page which is ready-to-use or customize. The default page is fully functional and may be customized through the wizard. To find your default donation page, login to your Click & Pledge account, then click on the Checkout Page icon at the top of the page.

      For May 6, 2014 Seattle Foundationís GiveBIG Day we recommend if you are having trouble seeing your donation that you join us for live support using the following link:
