We have removed the default requirement for donors to ‘confirm’ their email address before being able to complete a donation using Echoleft. Donors can now donate to good causes on Echoleft without confirming their email address.
We confirm email addresses by sending an email with a special link in it. Clicking the link confirms that the donor has access to the email account. When donating, the confirmation email will still be sent so the donor can confirm their account, but we will not require the link to be clicked on before completing a donation.
We are aware that some good causes do have a requirement for email confirmation. As such, we're now able to enable this requirement for individual organisations. If you work with a good cause that requires email confirmation for donation, please email email@example.com.
Please note that this does not affect event purchasing registrations & tickets, which do still require email addresses to be confirmed before being completed.
