❗ Important Note: The New Giving Form is currently in Early Access. If you are not part of the Early Access program this is not applicable to you at this time.
Adding a giving button to your website doesn't have to be difficult or confusing! You can either use the direct link that takes people to your dedicated online giving form or you can embed your Tithe.ly giving form right into your website using your embed code.
Using Your Giving Form Embed Code
Please Note: Before attempting to embed a code on your website please make sure your Squarespace website subscription allows for custom code. If it does not you will need to use method #2 on this article or upgrade your subscription.
It is also important to know if your website is SSL secure. If your site does not has SSL security the Tithe.ly giving button will warn users that the site may not be secure. You can tell is your site has SSL Security if it starts with HTTPS. If your site only starts with HTTP you do not have this and will need to contact your website provider.
Retrieving your Tithe.ly giving form Code:
Select Giving from the left-hand menu.
Click on the "Giving Form" tab located in the left menu:
You'll be taken to the Giving Form Editor. From here you can customize the styling of your Giving Form and preview those changes as you make them. If you have multiple organizations (churches, campuses, ministries, etc) setup in your account, select the correct organization from the drop down in the top-left corner of the editor:
Make sure that you have the "Link and Embed" tab selected at the top of the Giving Form section:
From here, you will see an "Embed Code" text block. Simply select the Copy button on the right side of the block:
Embedding the Tithe.ly form code into SquareSpace:
If you have a SquareSpace account log into the admin side of your website. Locate the page you would like to add your giving button.
Add a new option onto your page and select "Code" (top line, fourth from the left).
A text box will appear. Erase all the text that is inside and paste your code from Tithe.ly.
Click save and the giving button will appear!
Please Note: In editor mode within SquareSpace it may show an error code that says ‘Previewing in safe mode’ this will not appear on the published page. Please open another tab and view your website as a user to see what the giving button looks like.
Using Direct Website Giving Link
If you cannot or don't want to use the embedded method, you can copy your dedicated Tithe.ly giving form URL from the same page that you copied the Embed Code from:
Your Direct Giving Link can either be used on social media, through newsletters, pasted anywhere on your site, or if your site allows, it can be added as a button.
Just add the direct giving link in the URL dedicated section and click save.
