DragonByte Donate is a professional donation mod, allowing administrators to accept donations from PayPal (additional options available via [bd] Paygates as an optional add-on).


DragonByte Donate is the ideal product for forums that wish to accept donations from their members. Featuring the ability to create multiple different donation drives, an advanced recurring donation drive system and optional integration with [bd] Paygates for multiple payment processors, you will have plenty of options to suit every need.

You can display multiple donation drives on the front page of your forum, either in a compact tabbed design or as individual blocks, depending on your preference. If you're using the built-in PayPal integration, you even have the ability to set different PayPal accounts for different donation drives - perfect for if you want to run a charity donation drive for one of your well-known members that have fallen on hard times.

Last but by no means least, you also have the ability to add any currency you want! You're not limited to the "big five" found in most other donation modifications, you can add your local currency as well to really personalise your site to your target demographic. If you add multiple currencies to your system, you choose one currency to be the "Primary Currency" and any donations received in other currencies will be converted to the Primary Currency for display purposes (it won't change the amount received by your payment processor). The donation list will still display the currency the user donated in, however.

Major Features
Advanced Donation Drives:
Donation Drives can be customised in a wide number of ways, including advanced recurring options, whether to display it on the main page and/or the sidebar, as well as a short and a full description (to be displayed on the main Donation Drive info page).

Multiple Currency Integration: You are able to define any number of currencies, not just the "big five". Advanced currency conversion functionality will automatically adjust the donation drives' donation amounts no matter what currency you receive a donation in by automatically updating exchange rates from a remote API.

Importers: If you have XFApps', *******'s or AD's donation mods installed, this mod can import from all of them.

Browsable Donation Log: The list of people who donated can be found both via the AdminCP as well as the front-end. Front-end donation lists respect the "anonymous" flag users can decide while donating.

It does what it advertises, allows donations However its not the best at it. I wish it came with more configuration options: eg: It puts a giant donate box on my homepage, and then on the sidebar it puts 3 boxes which you cannot configure. Other than that, works fine (and quite well)
I purchased this Add-On and have not been able to use. I've sent support request and they fail to help as of yet. My review is based on my personal experience with it. I've seen forums with other owners of the add-on with the same issue but nothing I can use to fix mine.

You posted your support ticket ( https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/threads/error.22483/ ) at 12:26 PM, and you received a reply at 1:02 PM. I’m sorry if you feel like a 40 minutes response time constitutes as “failing to help”. Your follow up reply at 7:48 AM came while I was sleeping, so I have not had a chance to respond to it yet.

Hopefully you can understand that I do sometimes need sleep and as such I will be unable to respond to your query. I do apologise for that.
As always, when I start using an add-on in my main site, I share my experience.

I'm so happy that I replaced this add-on with another paid one, as Fillip (developer) is so active and it ensures me that I can rely on the add-on. Because a big board is not a place to play with add-ons and always change important part of site or disable it because of bugs in all versions! and waiting for +2 weeks to get a neutral answer to support ticket from developer!

Also another good thing about this add-on is that its from a professional developer and you can suggest useful feature and hope to see it in next updates. And because it is being updated regularly, you can hope to get your needs soon.

Although I missed a few things from previous add-on (and of course I suggested them for this add-on) but doesn't keep me from leaving a 5 stars review for this. Its totally recommended (at least, so far!)

Thanks Fillip for your great work, and I wish you the best!
