You may have customers who would like to offer a monetary donation in order to "sponsor" the adoption fee for an animal in your program so that their future adopter does not need to pay a fee.
In order to record these payments, you'll may either:
- Create a non-adoption shopping cart item for each adoption group you have configured such as "Sponsored Adoption - Adult Dog $25," then add this item to your shopping cart during checkout. You may choose to record the name and ID of the animal in the transaction memo field.
- Record the transaction as a Donation, then enter the sponsored amount and memo in the Donation pop-up window. You may also wish to configure a specific Department and Fund for sponsored adoption donations:
You'll also want to create a $0 adoption fee price group (possibly called "Sponsored Adoption") and update the animal's adoption group from their profile when the sponsorship occurs.
