This is a really simple plugin which makes it easy to generate URLs for the CAF donation system.
For example, you might have a donate button on your site that lets users select from pre-defined amounts – £5, £10, £25 etc. This plugin lets you generate a URL for each amount so you can direct your user to a CAF form pre-filled with the correct parameters.
- Install and activate the plugin.
- Go to Settings > CAF Donations and enter your charity’s donation URL in the box. This normally looks like this: https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/10805
- Now you can generate donation URLs in your code using the abe_caf_get_donation_link() function! See below.
Once you’ve set up the plugin and entered your charity’s CAF url, you can call the
abe_caf_get_donation_link function like so:
abecaf_get_donation_link( $amount, $regular );
Generate the URL to make a one-off £10 donation:
abecaf_get_donation_link( 10, false ); // "https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/10742?caf_donationamount=10&caf_paymenttype=single"
Generate the URL to make a recurring £25 donation:
abecaf_get_donation_link( 25, true ); // "https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/10742?caf_donationamount=25&caf_paymenttype=regular"
