Web widgets are a kind of easy API for web designers, making it possible for them build and embed completely customisable giving pages on to your website, using the popular Stripe (for payment cards) and GoCardless (for Direct Debits) payment gateways.

Web Widgets provide a great amount of flexibility and the following benefits over third-party donation platforms:
- Allows you to stay in control of your brand. Donorfy's giving tools do not take your donors off to a third party site to complete their donation. You have complete control over the user experience.
- Minimises your costs. Donorfy charges nothing for your take a donation by card or a regular gift by Direct Debit. The only costs are those made by the payment gateway (Stripe or GoCardless).
- Automatically update the CRM. By using Donorfy's widgets your donors and their donations will automatically end up in your database, categorised correctly, and the Gift Aid will be automatically claimed if applicable.
- They allow you to engage with your supporters more by extending the widget to use automation within MailChimp (a MailChimp account is required to use this feature).
