Hello together.

I have a question. I developed a game which i uploaded today. I don't want to sell the game because it is just a prototype and i think there are games out there that are worthier beeing paid for. Anyways i would like to let people have the oppurtinity to support me if they want to. The problem is that there is no "support this game" button under my game but under other games there allways is. Did i do somerhing wrong? I can't figure out how to add that button.. 

I'm sorry if there already have been questions like this but i couldn't find anything about this topic.

The game is: https://abduki.itch.io/gravity...

Thanks in advance and have a nice day :)

Hello, you need to configure payments on your account in order to use a donation button. Thanks

Thank you very much! :)

I know this is a bit of a necro, but i am in a simliar sutation, but i do not know where to go to set up the button.

uh oh, same

It's not the button you need to set up, Itch.io projects can receive donations by default. As Leaf pointed out above, you need to configure payments on your account. You can do that in the Payment Processors section of your account settings.

In unrelated news, next time you have a problem, please start a new topic rather than necro-ing a 9-months-old thread. I only noticed your post by pure chance. As you can see, the creator you replied to wasn't so lucky. :)

ugh... well... I adjusted up payments on my account, but under my project there is no "donate for this  project" button, which Abduki has (https://abduki.itch.io/gravity-box). So... I need to add it in some other way?

p.s I swear, it was the last question, starting from the next I will open a new thread!!

p.s.s. can I collect donations, if I didn't upload the game yet? I mean something like an advertising page, where is no game itself, but you still can donate to author

No, by default the donation button is enabled. Make sure you haven't ticked the "no payments" checkbox under Pricing on your project's edit page.

And no, you can't collect donations for a web game that isn't there yet. For a downloadable game, I think you can mark some of the files as placeholders for preorders. Can't seem to find the checkbox right now however.

Got it, thanks!
