Sorry if this is a noob post... I'm not really sure what to search for.

I'd like to accept online donations in non-Bitcoin payment systems (so that people without Bitcoins can donate), but I'd like the donations to automatically show up as Bitcoins sent to my BTC address.  CoinPal offered an API for this (so that people could donate in PayPal and it would automatically be paid to a BTC address), but seeing as CoinPal is no more, I'm wondering if there are any services like this left.  I don't really care whether the payment methods are reversible or irreversible (I assume irreversible is more doable due to fraud); just something that's more convenient than Bitcoin for people who've never used Bitcoin and don't want to.  I only care about donations, not payment for goods/services, so I assume that simplifies the system.

Again, sorry if this question is stupid; I have no clue what search terms I would enter, so I wasn't able to search.
