  • Do C&P iFrame widgets work as Facebook tabs?

    Hi there,

    The nonprofit I work has been really struggling with the poor quality of information provided by Facebook's donate function. Well recently I stumbled across a help article by Mobile Cause, another third party payment processor, with instructions on how to embed a Mobile Causes donation form inside a custom Facebook tab on a page, using iFrame. I immediately thought of Click & Pledge, because I use iFrames to embed your widgets into my org's website.

    So my question is, have you had any clients who have successfully been able to use iFrames to embed a C&P widget into a tab on their org's Facebook page? And if not, do you think it would work (obviously I know you can't account for Facebook's variables, but I am really not an expert in HTML so might have missed obvious incompatibilities)?

    I would be so excited to have finally found a workaround to bypass FB's donate function, especially since our C&P is already integrated with our Salesforce so it would save is a significant amount of data entry as well.

    Here is the guide I'm referring to:
    And here is a more generic guide on iFrames in Facebook:

    Thanks so much for your time!

    Yes. Facebook had a feature to add iframes on tabs, and I have successfully added a tab with a Click & Pledge iframe. I used an add-on called Static HTML.
    If Facebook still supports iframes, you should be able to add a C&P donation form.
