How to Setup a Fundraiser
The fundraiser is a code-activated promotion intended to encourage supporters of an organization to use the car wash. No discount or other benefit is provided to the user at the wash but usage of the fundraiser “code” is tracked and reported. The operator will typically donate a set amount to the organization for each wash purchase where the fundraiser code was entered. Fundraisers can be configured to apply to any of the available washes and usage can be controlled by a schedule and a limit for the total number of redemptions allowed.
When a fundraiser code is entered and validated, a thank you message will be displayed and washes that are not associated with the fundraiser will be removed from the product selection screen.
