ChipIn: Funds for a reason

ChipIn is an online tool to collect money from your blog or website and they have widgets that you can embed in your sidebar. It is a good way to keep track of your donations and an eye catching way of keeping track of your fund raising project. I personally like the backend interface and widget loads fast and you can choose many different applications to display the widget on including hosted WordPress blogs. At this time ChipIn does not charge any money to use their widget and the only fees you have to pay is for the PayPal transfer. This could be really useful to churches and other non-profit groups that regularly require donations for projects. ChipIn caught my eye when I was browsing a Church’s blog and they were collecting money for a new air-conditioner. I might set one up for the WordPress Plugin Competition.

Know of anyone that could use ChipIn? If you do end up setting up a fund raiser for something using ChipIn, please leave a comment.

    The loading speed of this widget is quite impressive; although, it may just be because the widget hasn’t hit the mainstream.

    I set up a collection on my website just to test it, and while I think it is a good idea and well thought out, I wish you could adjust the color a little more (it just has a generic blue, brown, grey, green and red) and it would be nice if they had a version that was a square with hard edges.

    I set this up on my engagement blog a couple weeks ago to raise money for Wedding Registry selections I would choose! My mom has been the only contributor, but hopefully as family and friends get our Save The Dates, more generosity will roll in!!

    Yeah I could probably use this for my church website that I am starting at the moment :)
