Hi,

I'm new to Bitcoin and certainly intrigued by it.

What are the current options for a 'donate now' type button on a web page? I know its simple to publish your receiving address, but I'm hoping there is some service where the user can click a button and then confirm a dialog to donate X bitcoins to a webmaster.


Regards,

Will

Well, there's something like YouTipIt, although it's not quite what you asked for.

The signature bar at the bottom of this post is another possibility.

Cheers,

Step 1) Sign up for a MyBitcoin account.

Step 2) Go to Merchant Tools.

Step 3) Use the button code generator to create a button. Leave it unencrypted.

Step 4) Copy the HTML code and paste it into your website.

Step 5) Change this

Code:
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="1.00">
to this
Code:
<input type="text" name="amount">

This adds a payment button and a text box where the user can enter an amount. If you know HTML, you can change that to a select list or some other method of the user entering an amount.

We haven't created a URI scheme like bitcoin:// yet, so you have to use a service like MyBitcoin.
(Note: I have not tested MyBitcoin, yet.)

I tried to figure out what the most portable Javascript way of doing this is and wrote an article about it, here you go:

Gary Rowe wrote up a how-to for bitcoin URI links on his blog:
http://gary-rowe.com/agilestack/2012/01/09/how-to-accept-bitcoins-on-your-blog-with-no-code/

Both MultiBit and Electrum now support Bitcoin URIs as per BIP21.
Edit: I believe this is targeted to go into the Satoshi client V0.6 but am not 100% sure.
