Using a custom success page after a donation

By default, after making a donation a donor will be forwarded to the address of the donation form and will see the success message that has been set-up in the settings instead of the form.

However, the FundraisingBox also offers the possibility of forwarding donors to a fully customised thank-you page that you have placed on your website. The setting for this can be found in the advanced settings of your donation form under Success Page > Custom Success Page.

Enter the URL address of your custom thank you page into the field, e.g.

  • %last_name%
  • %company_name%
  • %country%
