Registration Entry Block Setup

Introduction

Simple Donation is the only Financial Gateway that includes an easy and direct method for taking ACH and Credit Card payments in RockRMS with some additional features such as Cover the Fee. 

Not only can you process payments within an Event Registration but it can also handle Scheduled Event Payments and Subscriptions. See more on Scheduled Event Payments.

Implementation

Setting Up Your Registration Entry Block

In order to use Simple Donation as your processor for Event Registration payments you'll need to replace the core Registration Entry block with the Simple Donation Registration Entry block.

  1. Add the Simple Donation Registration Entry Block to the core Registration page found in CMS Configuration - Pages - External Homepage - Calendar - Registration. In the Block Type picker you can search on "simple donation" and select Simple Donation Registration Entry to add the block to the main zone. Be sure to remove the original core Registration Entry block from the Main zone on this page.

  2. Click on the gear icon once the block has been added to the page in order to properly set up the block for taking Event Registration payments:

  3. Look for the specific Simple Donation Settings at the bottom of the block's Basic Settings tab. Select whether you'd like to enable ACH giving as well as make ACH (Bank) the default payment methods versus Credit Card. You can also choose to show and/or default Cover the Fees option:

    Added to the latest v.1.16.9 plugin, the Simple Donation Registration Entry block now allows you to specify the account that you'd like just the Covered Fees to go towards. This ensures that a fully paid registration that has the fees covered does not show a negative balance due and enables those same covered fees to be attributed with a Tax-Deductible account! You can select an existing account such as the General Fund or create a new Account in the Finance menu in order to store these fee values before selecting it in the block settings.

Setting Up Your Registration Entry Block

Ensure that the Event Registration Template and/or Instance has the Financial Gateway set to Simple Donation!

That's all it takes!
