Interesting idea few issues.

1. you need to open http on the computercraft config to allow a connect. Opens your server to hacking.
2. i don't know how computercraft will handle high end internet code(java,php,..etc)
3. You'd be capturing people paypal passwords, without encryption. They may not like this, and i'm sure paypal wouldn't like this.

Sorry to rain on your parade, its a nice idea.

He may mean clicking on it actually opens Paypal on the user's Windows/Mac/Linux computer, in an external browser. I don't think Computercraft allows this; it'd be a very risky feature.

suggestion for the other way round:

a smartphone with an app, that accesses the computercraft-system from outside.

and suddenly, you got a way to manage your whole base from your smartphone, while you are running around somewhere or while you are even offline...

of course, it needs to be secured, else everyone can access it...

Entirely possible. Http api querying a page containing commands, which you input in a page that is password protected. You would even be able to send out data using get/post. The only "issue" is that it requires a web server of some sorts, but you could use one of the many free web hosting sites out there.

To the original OP: display a QR code that a person can scan with their smartphones to open a donation link?
