Needing help with a Donation site

Recommended Posts

I am getting stuck when laying this site out. It is a site similar to the layout of this template: https://malone-demo.squarespace.com/

My client has farm animals she is asking for donations per animal. So I constructed it as an ecommerce site and added the animals as 'products'.

  1. Do I set the layout up on a hidden page? then place a SUMMARY where I would like to show the animal grid? (then I don't get a button)
  2. What is the best way to set this up? I have tried it all--- as 'donations' individually; summary block; product page.....

Ideally- I would like the summary to have Donate buttons that tracks each animal, i.e.., "Donate for Philippe"

Would it work to have each animal as a service "product" with a variant option called donation level? Friend, Supporter, Patron, etc? The downside here is that you don't get the potential other option that you do with a donate button.

Then build a page with Product blocks. Products block have the option to show an excerpt. You'd need some CSS to hide the quantity button.

But that doesn't seem very efficient.

I'm thinking just a regular page where you build up each animal's pic, description, and a donation button.

Is there a way to know which animal they donated to?  I am also dealing with a non profit website

I am going another route. Here, I have just stacked :


the donate button pops up and it is there you can add denominations and OTHER!
