My account upgrades use PayPal. A lot of my members are asking if I can provide a non-PayPal option.

I know there is an addon to allow that, but I'm looking for a simple donate button instead. Then if I get a donation that way, I'll manually upgrade the member account.

Here's what I need:
-Trustworthy and reliable
-Ability to set a minimum donation
-Ability to tell which member donated
-Something available to most of the world, especially N. America, Europe, Australia, N. Zealand

Any suggestions?

BD Paygate supports many, and its free, combine it with DragonByte donate and it will handle what you need.

This is part of the reason I'd like a name your price option for user account upgrades built into XF. Then you could use the built in payment systems and use companies like Stripe, which in turn allows the likes of Apple Pay and Google Pay, with much lower fees than Paypal.

Stripe is great. There is a very good addon for XF2 here: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/stripe-all-payment-methods.6391/
It offers a mass of payment methods. There are a number of addons for account upgrades that allow custom amounts and gift upgrades.

The Stripe PayGate for XF1 is outdated as Stripe upgraded its system in several ways. It was giving warnings about several things. I posted the issues in the related thread.

Then the Stripe Full addon will be very useful to you and will increase your income.

I'm not on XF2 yet and probably won't be able to get there for some time now, unfortunately.

Then consider if its worth it to set up a 2nd installation for XF2 and let your members donate through that. There are a number of good financial addons for XF2 including Mollie and Patreon. You can synch users with bd API.

If you find the concept of flattr interesting, then do take a look at that too. Because it can also be useful for accepting donation. And then there is also brave browser too.
