  • This module adds a new product type "Donation Product" to your Magento 2 installation.
  • A customer can add this donation product to the cart with a self chosen amount.

The donation products can be viewed on several standard locations in your Magento 2 webshop - Homepage - Sidebar - Cart - Checkout

Off course it is possible to implement this block on any location by a Magento frontend developer. Or in a cms of category layout update via the Magento Admin. Xml example is provided in the 'Full Size Block' chapter.

When clicked on a charity of the customers choice a popup will open with the charities details and a add to cart button.

You can also create a regular category with all the donation products with a regular product detail page.

A "Donation Product" has a lot in common with a "Virtual Product". It has no stock, weight and doesn't need a shipping method or address to be set in the checkout.

Can i combine the 'Donation product options' with 'Custom options / Customizable Options'?

Although its not supported, it can be done! You have change the following template by overwriting it with your own custom template version. vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/view/form.phtml. You probaly have to hide or remove a duplicate addtocart button

The donation product uses the 'product_info_form_content' container. This is only rendered when no 'Custom options' are found.

<?php if (!$block->hasOptions()):?>
    <?= $block->getChildHtml('product_info_form_content') ?>
<?php else:?>
    <?php if ($_product->isSaleable() && $block->getOptionsContainer() == 'container1'):?>
        <?= $block->getChildChildHtml('options_container') ?>
    <?php endif;?>
<?php endif; ?>

If you want to render both 'Custom options' and 'Donation options'. Change the if statement.

<?php if (!$block->hasOptions() || $_product->getTypeId()=='donation'):?>
    <?= $block->getChildHtml('product_info_form_content') ?>
<?php else:?>
    <?php if ($_product->isSaleable() && $block->getOptionsContainer() == 'container1'):?>
        <?= $block->getChildChildHtml('options_container') ?>
    <?php endif;?>
<?php endif; ?>
