Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a free service from Google that allows you to view hundreds of statistics on your site’s web traffic. Available stats include how many people have visited your site, how long they were there for, how they found your site, and where they are from. After setting up Analytics, Google will send you a weekly report with this information and much more.

To sign up, you need to have a Google account. The steps to getting started can be viewed here (requires Google account to access). If you are using RJ Web Builder, after you have signed up for Google Analytics, send us the code they provide, and we'll embed it in your site. Once the code has been verified by Google, data tracking should begin within 24 hours.

Paypal payments sit in your account, and can be transferred to a bank account any time, free of charge. You may also make purchases using your Paypal account.

Network for Good

While this service takes a slightly larger cut of donations than Paypal, and charges a monthly fee, it enables you to fully customize your donations page.
