How to contribute to an item

The Contribute button on Wishpot makes it easy for multiple guests to share the cost of a single item. List owners will be able to see who has contributed to their item and those who contribute can leave custom messages with their cash gift. 

Only items with a blue contribute button (to the right of the item) can be contributed to. (If no blue button is visible, list owners have chosen not to collect contributions on this item.) Contributions can be made with a PayPal account. To make a contribution click on the blue Contribute button. 

They will prompt your guests to 'register' but won't require they attach a bank account or anything like that. You can see in the space below that a guest can enter their credit card info without it being attached to PayPal. The name and email is used to send out a confirmation email for the transaction.

Enter the dollar amount (in US dollars) you wish to give. Click Update Totals. On the same page you will be prompted to log in to Paypal or enter create a Paypal account. Click enter. 

PayPal will prompt you to review the transaction. It is here you can also leave a custom message with your gift. Once done click Pay Now

Paypal will provide an order summary and a transaction ID number (this will also be emailed to you) and a link to return to Wishpot. Click Return to Wishpot

On Wishpot the blue Contribute button will reflect the percentage contributed in green. (You may need to refresh the page) The amount contributed is visible to the public but only list owners can see who contributed to their item.
