I thought it would be exciting to demonstrate how you can use the Sitefinity Ecommerce API to create a custom donation widget for accepting online donations. Donations are usually difficult for many ecommerce systems. Below I have listed a few reasons ecommerce applications struggle with online donations.
These are just a few problems you can experience in typical ecommerce systems and applications, all of which are not ideal if you want to maximize your donation potential.
In this post, I have included the source code for this project along with a video demonstrating how to add this project into a Sitefinity 5.x solution. The video also demonstrates how to add the donation widget into Sitefinity along with making a sample donation and checking out. I am using the Sitefinity 5.0 Starter Kit called “Corporate Starter” as this starter kit has Sitefinity Ecommerce enabled. Because we are using the Sitefinity Ecommerce API, you will need the Sitefinity Ecommerce Add-On enabled in Sitefinity. To see if your web site has the Ecommerce add-on enabled, login to the Sitefinity backend and look at the top main navigation for a button labeled “Ecommerce”. If you see this button/selection, you have the Sitefinity Ecommerce Add-on enabled. If you do not see the button labeled “Ecommerce” in the main navigation, you will need to purchase this Sitefinity Add-on in order to use this donation widget.
Click HERE to download the source code for the sample donation widget. NOTE: this functionality was disconnected in Sitefinity 6.3 because of the multiple prices changes made in this version.
