2) How to pull records of donations/donors on Paypal?
We don't have an inbuilt report that would help track the donations/donor's details due to the payment being processed directly on PayPal however you can find those details on your PayPal account by downloading the "Activity" report and filtering it using the "Reference" you have added under "Accept Donations" tab of your Yapsody account.
Unsure, what the "Reference" is? simply scroll the page up and refer to the 03rd (Third) Screenshot of this article.
Once, you are sure, of what we have to look for, please follow the below steps to download the report.
i) Click on "Activity" at the top left, followed by "All Reports" and "Activity Download."
ii) Now select "All transactions" under the Transaction Type drop-down, Select "Date Range" as per your preference, and then Click "Create Report."
Note:- You can also Customize the field you want to see in the report by clicking Customize Report Field.
To ensure the Reference appears on all the transactions, please have the option "Item Title" checked under Cart details.
iii) Upon generating the report, click "Download" and once downloading is successful, open the file and filter the report using Reference to view only donation and donors details.
Note:- You would see the Payer's PayPal Name and Email address, only, if they have donated using their PayPal account, if they used a credit card, you would only be able to see their email addresses.
Moreover, if the transaction isn't settled with PayPal you wouldn't find the entry of it upon generating the report, it may take up to 72 hours for a transaction to settle with PayPal.
