Why are there two donation pages in the credit card checkout flow?

When you select the blue "Continue with Payment" button, the first donation prompt is for internal use only in case the customer offers a donation up front. The adopter should not be seeing your screen at this point:


When the checkout is texted to the customer for a credit card payment (or if you click "Use this device"), we will ask the customer for a donation on your behalf before they enter their credit card number:


However, if they offered a donation up front and you entered it into the first form above, we will hide this donation ask page from their checkout flow.

In the "use separate card reader/cash/check" flow, the team member processing the transaction would have to ask if the adopter would like to make a donation and enter it into the first form above. The adopter will not see a donation ask page at any point in this flow.
