If you wish, you can allow your attendees to make a donation towards your event, charity or organisation on top of the ticket price. This tutorial will show you how to accept donations for any of your events. 

  1. From the 'Events' section of your dashboard, find your event and choose 'Edit events and tickets' from the side menu.

  2. Under the Event settings heading, tick the checkbox marked 'Allow customers to make a donation'.

  3. Here you can give your donation a title, a description, and - optionally - choose a suggested donation amount for your attendees. At the checkout, the donation field will be pre-filled with your suggested amount.

  4. When you’re done, click the 'Save event' button.

💡 You need to create at least one ticket type to be able to accept donations. (This can be a free ticket).

💡 To report on your donations, export your order information from your 'Orders' page.

💡 We do not charge our fee on donations, but your payment system will charge their fee.
