We use our shopping cart to register folks for upcoming events. Many people send checks which should be manually entered as PURCHASES in the Journal. Currently, PURCHASE isn’t a journal transaction choice, and we don’t want to use GIFT because these aren’t gifts. If PURCHASE is used when registration is completed and paid online, it would seem that PURCHASE is already set up as a journal transaction. Therefore, why couldn’t PURCHASE be made available as a manual journal entry.
Not only is it important to classify event payments as a purchase and not a gift, but it also throws the attendance count report off because a gift transaction doesn’t have a quantity field.
Please seriously consider adding PURCHASE to manual journal transactions as soon as possible. We had a major event in June and haven't entered into eTap the tickets purchased by checks as yet..
