Embed contribution flow

To integrate a "Contribute" option directly on your website

This feature is currently in a beta-test phase. If you face any issue or need assistance, you can send a message on Slack (#embed-contribution-flow channel)

The embed contribution flow is a way to integrate Open Collective on your own website. Visitors will be able to contribute directly, by simply providing an email address.

Embedded contribution on the website of an initiative

General considerations

  • The widget will look better if it has some space, ideally the full page height & width

  • The following URL parameters can be used to configure your integration:

Parameter

Value type

Default value

Description

useTheme

Boolean

true

By default, the theme of your profile (defined by your primary color) will be used. If you rather want to use the default Open Collective theme, set this to false.

hideHeader

Boolean

false

Set this to true to hide the header at the top

disabedlPaymentMethodTypes

[String]

null

A list of payment method types to disable. Example: [CREDITCARD, MANUAL, CRYPTO]

tags

[String]

null

Some tags to attach to the orders. If you're embedding the contribution flow on multiple pages/websites, you can use this to track from where the contributions are coming from.

Max number of tags: 30

Max tag length: 32

Embed the default tier (Donate)

The simplest way to embed the contribution flow is by using the /donate URL (e.g. https://opencollective.com/babel/donate). Just replace COLLECTIVE_SLUG by your collective slug below:

<iframe src="https://opencollective.com/embed/COLLECTIVE_SLUG/donate" style="width: 100%; min-height: 100vh;"></iframe>

Embed a specific tier

To embed a specific tier, you'll need to know its ID. For that, go to your profile page, click on "Contribute" for the tier you want to embed then check the URL. It should look like https://opencollective.com/COLLECTIVE_SLUG/contribute/TIER_SLUG-TIER_ID/checkout

From this URL, you can deduct the embedded one (prefix with embed and removes /checkout):

<iframe src="https://opencollective.com/embed/COLLECTIVE_SLUG/contribute/TIER_SLUG-TIER_ID" style="width: 100%; min-height: 100vh;"></iframe>
