PayPal Donation Link Generator App

Lately I had so fun to coding stuff for my needs with paypal. As, I was in need to have few links for paypal donations to be sent via IRC I decided to create quick app, which will generate those kind of links for me without need to see and use paypal website it self. You know, each time you need paypal link for donation, you have to log into paypal and generate donation button and then you have to manually decode that code behind the button. I found this a bit of waste of time, so I created simple solution for my self (and you all lazy people 😉 ), which I released today to public for free to use. Yet my another paypal app eh.

I’ve created simple app which will run in your browser and no data would be sent over internet. You can specify your paypal email for donations and let the person who will make donation to you or your project to decide how much money he want to send you or even subscribe monthly to keep donation running. App it self will generate link for you which you just copy and paste whenever you would like to.

I also modified my app to be able specify donations sum directly via link 😉

This simple solution is quiet good as you can use those links in emails or website (yes you can stick them behind pictures or your own buttons), pdfs etc.

App it self is absolutely private as I mentioned earlier and does not save any data, which means if you close window or reload window in your browser, everything will be lost and you will have to start over again which is just fine. The ‘tools’ site does not even use cookies or any type of tracking software or databases and of course all connections are via ssl (https) only. All magic is happening in your browser (client side app).

This is good way to create as I call it disposable links very fast. Did I mention that you can use this from mobile devices? 😉
