Incoming payments and how to create a donation link

Incoming payments can easily be made via bank transfer. You can find your bank details in the dashboard of your group. Please don’t forget to enter the code that you find under Purpose.

If you get a lot of donations, we suggest you create a donation link. You can find this function in the section Transactions.

This link can be embedded in your web page.
