Introducing Donation Receipt Attachments
I’ll admit that we’re cheating just a little here. I actually built this add-on several years ago. It’s extremely useful and flexible, but for some reason not enough users have known about it. Let’s change that!
Donation Receipt Attachments is exactly what it sounds like. You can add any file to be included as a downloadable link that is included on the donation confirmation page. It also has the option to include the link on the donation receipts you email to your donors.
The settings for Donation Receipt Attachments are relatively straight forward. Here’s what you need:
- Upload the file you want to use as a gift through the file upload field in the settings.
- Set a minimum donation amount to make the download available.
- Add a title to the download message.
- Set the text for the download link.
Requiring a minimum donation amount ensures that you receive the value of your download if it has any. You can prevent smaller donations (like $1 or $5 donations) from getting the donor gift if they don’t reach the minimum requirement.
For example, maybe you’re offering a free ticket to an event that normally costs $50 to register for. You might set the minimum donation to be $100 to ensure the value of that registration is not lost and that you actually gain donation income from the fundraiser. Or you want to provide an incentive for donors to give at least $25 for a copy of a hand-drawn image you created. Setting the minimum shows that your “gift” has value, encouraging your donors to be more generous so they can benefit from it.
However you choose to use the Donation Receipt Attachments add-on, your donors will love getting a gift!
