    I work for a nonprofit and we use PayPal and get the charity rate. We used to be able to give donors the option to pay the processing fees on the donate button but now our button doesn’t do this. Can we still get our donate button to offer this option?

      Hi Nancy,

      This is actually the first we’ve heard of this change! We looked into it, and found that PayPal still advertises the ability to let donors pay the processing fees on its website. Have you reached out to PayPal to see if it’s still possible to do this? If it’s not, PayPal definitely needs to update its page! Please come back and let us know what you find out!
