BoxCast allows you to add a donate button in the description of your live stream anywhere you use the BoxCast embed code. It looks like this:
You can set up this Donate button to be linked with BoxCast's donation service or your own third party giving service- it's up to you!
How to set up Donate button
Go to the BoxCast Streaming Dashboard, Settings, then the Preferences tab. You'll see a section that says Ticketing and Donations.
Click on Edit, and fill out the information to enable donations. Choose Show Donations Button Below Video to allow the donate button to be embedded on your website embed and on boxcast.tv links.
You'll fill out your donation notification email and can enter a custom donation message to your viewers. If you want to link to a third-party donation service (External Site), you will click on the External Site tab and enter your link there.
If you use BoxCast's donation service, it will pop up over the broadcast like this.
If you link to an external destination, the link will open in a separate window.
