How to update your Candidate theme to support express payment options?

About Express payments

Enabling express payment options for your website will allow donors to contribute using Apple Pay, Google Pay, or credit card they've saved to their browser. By making these payment options available, you will:

  1. Minimize the time it takes for donors to contribute

  2. Make it easier for people to donate from their mobile devices

  3. Provide an added sense of security by allowing donors to avoid manual credit card input

All of these factors can increase donation conversion rates, giving your organization the means to better promote your cause.

📌 Note: This feature is only available on Donation (v2) pages using NationBuilder Payments. Learn more.
