How to set up and sell an online donation item for your business or non-profit organization

As communities work together and find ways to support one another during these uncertain times, you may consider offering a donation item on your Square Online store. Non-profit organizations can also follow the steps below to set up a donation item.

 

With Square Online, you can quickly set up a donation item to give your customers the opportunity to support a charitable organization, or to support your business. Your donation item could also be used to accept virtual tips to support your employees.

 

With a donation item, you can set suggested donation amounts, but you may also allow your customers to set up their own amounts.

 

How to add a donation item to your online store:

  1. Go to your Square Online Overview Page.
  2. Go to Items > Item Library > Create new item.
  3. Under Item Type, select Donation.
  4. Set up the new donation item, and include donation amounts of your own.
    1. You may also toggle ON letting your customers set custom donation amounts.
  5. Save the new item.
  6. Add it to your site and publish it.
