If a constituent makes a verbal commitment (ie. at event or via phone campaign) to make a one-time donation (ie. pledge) and we want to track + invoice them to fulfill that pledge, what is the best way to process via online self-service?
It looks like Pledges are designed for this, however:
They require an installment period. We only have a commitment for a one-time donation.
We need to ensure the payment matches / fulfills the pledge. Is there a special link for a pledge fulfillment/payment online? If not, the system will consider the pledge unpaid and continue to send reminders.
Alternatively, we can create a contribution with payment pending (or create a Pledged status type)
- How do you send an email invoice and ensure that the payment matches the pending contribution?
- Is there a way to construct the URL so the payment marks the contribution as complete?
I'd be open to using webforms - This seems like a common use-case.
