Zero Dollar Store Orders

By Darian Shimy / Feb 15 2018

Many FutureFund sites use zero dollar campaigns to track interest in a free program. Having a free movie night and want know how many people are coming? Create a campaign of type purchase and set the amount to zero.

Historically this was only possible for orders placed during registration. Store orders were sent to the payment processor regardless of dollar amount. This caused the payment to fail as Stripe has a minimum transaction amount of at least $0.50. We’ve extended support for zero dollar campaigns to store orders allowing sites to extend tracking for mid-year campaigns.
