If you’ve ever marveled at the magnitude of our nearly endless tools and features, then you’ll want to keep reading! We want to empower our partners to use our system to its full potential, and what better way to do that than with our blog? So, welcome to our new monthly blog series “Did You Know?” where we highlight some of our system’s features you might not have known about. To kick things off, let’s discuss donations.
Did you know you can add donations to your event listings?
With our customizable donations feature, your customers can become benefactors as they buy their tickets! If you’re organizing a nonprofit event or supporting a charitable organization, offering the option to donate in your online checkout can make a big difference. Why? Your customers are already purchasing tickets to your event, so there’s a good chance that they’ll be interested in further supporting your organization when given the option. Plus, instead of accepting donations separately, it’s all in one transaction, convenient for you and your customers.
Within our Admin, you can easily enable donations as you create your event. Once you turn this feature on, customers will see a box encouraging them to “Make a Donation,” with the option for them to enter any dollar amount. You may also set a suggested donation amount, which will automatically be added to the donation box, while still allowing customers to raise or lower the amount. The amount will get added to their total and paid for in one transaction, but you will be able to use our reporting tools to see donations and ticket sales separately.
