Free Events in Click & Pledge

Click & Pledge nicely supports online registration for both free and paid/ticketed events. However, one point of confusion for both users and staff is that a “$0.00” line item is displayed on the registration page even for free events, and for free events using the named event model, a “Payment Information” section is displayed on the second page of the registration UI.

Fortunately, C&P offers the ability to include custom CSS in the template designer. Some simple CSS suppresses these payment-related elements, granting a more streamlined free registration experience for both named and anonymous events. The effect isn’t perfect, but until Click & Pledge permits deeper modification of its registration component, I’m satisfied with the results. Enhancements are welcome!
