Adding a Manual Donation

Right now, the only way to manually add donations is through the Offline payment gateway. So to add this donation, go to Charitable > Settings > Payment Gateways and temporarily enable the Offline donation gateway.

After doing that, go to your website and create a donation for the amount, choosing the Offline payment option.

Once you have made the donation, you can turn off the Offline gateway if you don’t want to use it, and you can go to Charitable > Donations to mark the donation as Paid (by default, offline donations are considered “Pending” until they are confirmed as paid).

Note: In order for each donation to increase the number of donors to the campaign, be sure to be logged out when you make the manual donations and use a different email address for each donation. You can trick Charitable into thinking you’re using a different email address by adding +something before the @ symbol in your email address. For example, the following are all unique email addresses, but emails for each would go to the same address ([email protected]):
