Using PayPal as Payment Processor to enable donations in M-PESA (Kenya)

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping to enable donations on a Squarespare site for a small Kenyan CBO (Community Based Organization) that works to help Maasai individuals living with disability get access to healthcare and mobility. The founder is a trusted manager of the Maasai programs for an NGO  work for; the CBO is a volunteer effort he runs in his spare time.

Stripe does not yet support Kenyan currency, but it appears from their documentation that a Squarespace website can connect and solely use PayPal as a payment processor to accept payments; that PayPal does support Kenyan currency (Ksh); and that it's possible to connect Paypal Mobile Money Service with MPesa, which is the primary and often only way that people and community organizations in the remote communities in this region can accept and transfer money: https://www.paypal.com/ke/cshelp/article/what-is-paypal-mobile-money-service-with-m-pesa-help1010th

I'm curious if anyone else designing a Squarespace site has set up payment via this process  for a Kenyan based organization and has any insights or tips to share? Thank you, in advance, for your time and assistance.

Kind regards-
