I just want to ask about this NOTE (below) from paypal upon creating Donor button. Does this mean if you are an individual raising funds (not an organization or affiliated with any fundraising organization), I cannot withdraw the donations? What if I am just an individual and want to raise funds from donations? Can I still use the paypal donation button and be able to withdraw whatever comes in? What options do I have? Thank you.
Note: This button is intended for fundraising. If you are not raising money for a cause, please choose another option. Nonprofits must verify their status to withdraw donations they receive. Users that are not verified nonprofits must demonstrate how their donations will be used, once they raise more than $10,000 USD.
Just a brief history:
I want to raise funds for my cancer treatments. I was diagnosed of cancer last year and under treatments. Since what I make online is not enough for me and my family, I thought of raising funds for my treatments. I am not from the US so I cannot run Gofundme campaign.
Instead of just asking for donation,I want to give something back. I created a website with inspirational quotes posted daily and also with free subscription of daily quotes. Reading inspirational quotes and bible verses helped me stay positive and so I want to spread the positive vibes to others too. Can I use the paypay donation button here and be able to withdraw it?
Thank you very much. I used to make enough money online from affiliate marketing but now things are not that good. This is the first time putting donation button on my website and take my chance and test it. I am embarrassed about it but I have to do something while in my treatments and figuring out how to make enough money again online.
Thank you very much.
