Using a multiplier is an easy way to generate a higher donation percentage for a specific cause. If you have your donation amount set to 1%, you can set a 2x multiplier on your favorite cause and donate 2% when people select that specific nonprofit.
This is a great way to activate special giving opportunities. For example, if you wanted to donate extra to Feeding America during the month of November, you can leave your default donation at 1%, but increase the donation to 5% when someone chooses to support Feeding America.
Please note that in order to use a multiplier, you must be utilizing the Let Customers Choose giving experience in your Global Settings.
