“DePay Donations” is the first Open Source WordPress plugin that allows accepting P2P donations with decentralized conversion of incoming cryptocurrency donations into tokens selected by the receiver.
Swiss Web3 payment startup DePay has released a free to install WordPress plugin which allows content creators and publishers to accept middleman-free and therefore financial-censorship-resistant donations. Site owners interested in receiving crypto donations can install the Web3 donation plugin from the official WordPress plugin directory with just a few clicks.

WordPress publishers seeking to accept crypto donations often have to choose between two main options:
A common way is to use a centralized crypto payment gateway. Going this way implies that one has to trust intermediaries who accept the donations on one’s behalf, which contradicts the core idea of decentralization. Additionally, the number of cryptocurrencies that can be accepted with this option is often very limited.
Another option is to provide wallet addresses in plain text on their site. Besides the aesthetics, this way requires that you have high administrative overhead with monitoring different wallets and converting tokens to hedge against volatility.
DePay Donations offers an alternative with a new paradigm enabled by decentralized finance. It maximizes decentralization, interoperability and token acceptance while minimizing the administrative burden on the donation recipient.
