Send satoshis with lightning using electrum – how to do it?

I’ve made a new hot wallet for testing purposes.

I’ve opened a lightning channel using electrum and loaded it with a small amount of BTC I can afford to lose.

I want to send a small payment somewhere, e.g. donate to this site using the lightning at the bottom of the webpage: [,24h,weight](,24h,weight)

but I can’t actually see a way to input the lightning invoice? And I can’t find a decent tutorial in the form of a blog or a video.
Does anyone know how to do this?

  1. Sounds too complicated I used wallet of satoshi an had none of those problems just send the sats and that’s it

  2. I have not used Electrum for what you’re doing, but it looks like there’s not interface for sending sats via Lightning yet, why don’t you try with Zap? I suppose you’re trying to use it on a desktop.
