1. If you’re a venue, I can see you wanting to be able to track checkins to your venue within NationBuilder. That would be very useful. But we don’t have any customers like that right now and we don’t plan on targeting that market any time soon.
2. If you are promoting an event, which practically all of our customers do, letting folks check in to the event through foursquare is kind of cool, but I don’t think there’s enough people using foursquare for that to be particularly interesting at this point.
3. Are political candidates looking at this as a way to broadcast where their events are happening at as they are going out and meeting people? That could be useful, but again, the lack of people really using foursquare doesn’t seem like this is worth the effort.e
So the feature here is an additional to the signup form that lets the person tag themselves with checkboxes.
FYI, if you only want them to be able to specify one classification/tag, you can already do this with the Signup page type. Multiple ones would be a new feature.
If you don’t want your Twitter followers to be added to your database, you can remove the Twitter account from your Broadcaster. Then you could set any of those people to be prospects if you wanted.
The primary point of “prospects” and “supporters” is to keep separate the people who have opted in to hear from you (ie, your followers) and the people who haven’t.
Paypal is now fully integrated as a payment processor.
We did the good integration too, where it's as seamless as possible flipping to Paypal's site and immediately coming back to your NationBuilder site and resuming the normal flow. All the NationBuilder donation tracking, email notifications, and social sharing features are fully supported.
Paypal is very popular, it has been one of our most requested features primarily from organizations in Canada and Australia where we didn't previously have a good payment solution. It doesn't require a merchant account, which makes it very easy to get started accepting credit card donations. It can be used by organizations based in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Israel, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Turkey, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan.
And all payment processors we support, Paypal, Democracy Engine, Authorize.net, Payflow Pro, ActBlue, and SagePay can accept donations from virtually every country on earth.
To add it to your nation, go into Settings > Bank accounts > New bank account and choose Paypal. There are instructions there on what you need to get from Paypal to connect your account to NationBuilder. Then you just need to make a donation page and choose that as the account to use. If you already have a donation page, you can change it to Paypal, or if you want to accept Paypal in addition to how you are currently doing donations, you can set up a new donation page and include a link from one to the other.
If you have any questions, just drop us an email and we will help.
