The Donation Boost functionality in mobile checkout has been working so well for our customers (over $5+ million raised so far!) that we wanted to allow you to use it anywhere you like! The new Donation Boost Widget allows you to accept and process donations via a simple link, completely separate from a shopping cart in Shelterluv.
Your organization will be given a special link that you can place anywhere you think current and new donors might use it - behind a button on your website, linked from your email signature, shared on social media, and any other creative place you have in mind. You can also add a Donate button to your iframe that links directly to this widget. Watch the video below to see how it all works!
These donations will be tied directly and automatically into your Shelterluv people records. The system will look at the phone number and email that the donor provides, find the matching person record (if there is one), and add the donation to that person's record. If it doesn't find a match, a new person record will be automatically created in your account with all of the contact information that they entered for the donation transaction.
In your accounting reporting, these donations will be included with "Shelterluv Online Donation" as the item name to distinguish them from your other transactions.
The donation boost widget uses the same Stripe account that you have setup to use our Shelterpay features (mobile checkout). No extra setup is needed. If you aren't yet taking advantage of our Shelterpay features but would like to enable these in your account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
