The Foundry has the expertise and the tools to commerce-enable your web site. Whether you want to collect donations, open an online store, or sell tickets online, the Foundry can help with every step. The Foundry can help you:
- Design and launch an online store. We can build a custom store and shopping cart or help you select a third-party solution that will meet your needs. In either case, we'll help you design the store, enter merchandise, connect the store to an online payment processor, and process sales reports.
- Accept online donations and pledges. The Foundry has set up online and pledge systems for non-profits of every size. We can customize the systems to meet your exact fund-raising specifications, and we can connect the system to the credit card processing system of your choice. The Foundry has established partnerships with various payment processors to make it easy for you to set up your system and begin collecting funds quickly.
- Manage membership signup and renewal. The Foundry's Site Manager has a built-in membership database that can be customized for online membership sign up and renewal. The system will automatically email members when prior to the renewal deadline, and it will automatically update membership information after a member renews.
- Event management and ticket sales. The Foundry's Ticket Manager automates the creation of event announcements and the online sale of tickets. Whether you're hosting just one event a year or running a 25-show concert series, Ticket Manager automates the creation of event announcements, the sale of tickets, and the tracking of purchases. Ticket Manager allows you to create online event announcements where buyers can choose different ticket levels (when applicable) and pay online. Ticket Manager has easy-to-use tools so non-technical users can edit announcements without having to call outside developers. Built-in reports track all sales in real time.
