Collect donations by adding a “Donation show” or “Donation season package”

(Last updated on: December 12, 2017)

You can collect donations with Wintix and Webtix two ways: by setting up a show or a season package.

While either way works, we recommend that you set up your donations as a season package, so you don’t have to add a date. Season package setups are not date-specific while adding single events are date-specific. Wintix requires that you choose a date when adding a donation event under a single ticket event.

In this post, we’ll show you how to set it up both ways.

Set up donations as a show

To set up your donation event as a single event, in Wintix:

  • Click on Show | Utilities | Add a new show
  • Once you’ve added the show, you can complete the rest of the steps.  See the screen shot below showing what the single event Donation Testing looks like. Notice there is a date of December 31, 2020.  When setting up this kind of event as a single show, you would need to add a date in the future, preferably the last day of your regular season.
  • Make sure you set the event type as “Donation”
