We are happy to announce the new release of our Joomla crowdfunding solution. JGive 2.5.4 introduces the much-requested feature - the ability for the site administrator to choose if they want to include the platform fee in the donation/investment amount itself or charge it on top of the donation/investment amount.
Besides this, we have also fixed many bugs in this release. Read on for the detailed changelog.
Platform fees can be exclusive or inclusive of the donation/investment
Currently, the price that the donor/investor pays, is always inclusive of the fees. With JGive 2.5.4, the site administrator can choose to make the platform fees inclusive/exclusive for the campaign donor/investor.
In case of exclusive fees, the value of the fees will be added on top of the donation/investment.
Eg: if the platform fee is 10% then for a 100 USD donation/investment, the donor/investor will pay 110 USD (The campaign creator gets the full 100$).
For exclusive fees, the site administrator can either let donors/investors choose whether they want to pay the platform fee or they can make the platform fee mandatory for donors/investors.
If the fees are inclusive, for a platform fee of 10% and donation/investment of 100$, the donor/investor will pay only 100 USD (the campaign creator gets only 90$).
