You are NOT required to have a PayPal account, nor are required to make online donations via PayPal, to a Livingtree Give campaign.  

On any Livingtree Give campaign, after clicking the "Give" button, and after you have entered your personal information as a donor, you will notice a yellow "PayPal Checkout" button at the bottom.

PayPal is one of the payment methods that is accepted,  however, there are several other payment methods for making online donations.  Under the yellow button, you will notice that there are several credit card icons displayed as well.  

Aside from PayPal, other payment methods listed are:

  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • Although not shown here, you also have the ability to make donations via any Bank Debit Card that has the MC, Visa, Discover or AMEX logo.  

You cannot click the credit card icons.  To make a donation / pay, you must click the yellow PayPal Check out button in order to proceed.  

To proceed in selecting your payment method and finalize your donation/payment


After clicking the yellow PayPal Check out Button, a PayPal popup appears (see screenshot below).  If you choose to pay for your donation with a PayPal account, you can enter your PayPal online account login details (email address and password) here and follow the prompts to complete the payment.

Or, to pay with your debit or credit card, click the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" button at the bottom of the popup.  

On the next screen, enter your debit or credit card information.  The type of credit/debit card will automatically be recognized based on your card number.  Complete the requested information.

Follow the remaining prompts to complete your donation.
