Giving Made Easier
Encouraging your online shoppers to make donations just became easier! We recently released a new Drupal module, Commerce Donate, which allows visitors to your site to add donation products to their Commerce shopping cart.
A donation amount widget is provided alongside the "add to cart" button, allowing users to choose from four pre-defined amounts to donate. In addition, we've added in an "other" option to allow them to enter in an alternative figure of their choosing. The default options can be overridden by enabling the Commerce Customizable Products module and editing the amount field on the donation line item type.
However, one of the nicer features of the module is the ability for the user to add a donation to their order in the middle of the checkout process! This way you can encourage users already committed to making a purchase, to donate to your organization. We're also working on a new feature which will make suggestions to the user to round up their order to the nearest Euro or 10 Euros (or dollars or pounds or whatever your unit of currency may be) as another way of encouraging users to give a little extra.
