With Shelterpay, your team has a variety of donation tools right at your fingertips.
Donation Boosts in Mobile Checkout
We know that it’s sometimes awkward or not top of mind for staff to ask for donations, so we’ll ask for you... twice! The donation boost features prompt adopters to donate on your behalf during the mobile checkout flow. The adopter will see a screen with different amounts listed with information about what a donation of each size could cover for the organization; then, on the last screen of the checkout, they will also have the option to make a donation to cover your processing fees.
77% of adopters donate an average of $20/donation! It’s no wonder that 82% of organizations cover 100% of their Shelterluv and credit card processing fees with this feature.
Donation Boost Widget
The Donation Boost Widget is a special link you can place anywhere you think current and new donors might use it: a button on your website, your email signature, social media, a QR code on a sign in the shelter, and any other creative place you have in mind. When someone donates through this link, their person record will be automatically created in your Shelterluv account, and the donation will be recorded in your reporting. Donors can give a one-time gift or set up monthly donations through this tool.
Donate button next to animals on website
If you have an integration set up between Shelterluv and your website through our iframe, you can prompt your website visitors to donate when looking at a specific animal's profile. Clicking the Donate button will bring people to your Donation Boost Widget.
Other helpful information
- A list of donations and the associated donors can be pulled in the "Donations Taken" quick report (under Analysis & Reports > Quick Reports > Accounting).
- Some customers add attributes like "Donor" or "Monthly donor" to their donors' person records. This allows them to more easily keep track and pull lists of those who have donated.
