If your school is selling items like spirit wear or collecting payments and school fees, creating an online shopping experience is a sure-fire way to make it easy on parents, students, and your school. Online school stores and payment services eliminate the stress for parents that are hoping their child’s money doesn’t get lost between home and school, and the ease of purchase can also provide an effective boost in PTA or ASB funds. That’s why providing an online school store is one of the most effective steps when it comes to collecting school payments or generating funds for your PTA, ASB, and other school organizations.
So in addition to the suite of fundraising tools already in the Livingtree Give fundraising platform, you can also set up an online school store for item sales, as well as payment and fee collections. The Livingtree Give School Store can act as an online point of sale system for your school team, club, PTA, ASB, or any other organization, delivering convenience for all your school payment needs. And the best part? It’s included for free within the suite of features of Livingtree Give’s fundraising platform. That means there are no upfront costs or setup fees!
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look:
