It is possible to associate an account with a charity. When consigned items sell, a percentage of the amount credited to the consignor can automatically be deducted from the consignor's account and credited to a different account.
To set this up, the charity must first have a Client Account. See Add An Account.
Note: It is important to add the company name to the company field of the account.
Once the account is created then a Charity Donation Schedule must be created.

Here is an item that was sold for $100.00 with a 50/50 split. That means the consignor would of gotten $50.00. However because they are signed up with a Charity Donation of 3.00%, $1.50 was donated to the Charity Account.
