If you’re running a holiday bake sale as a fundraiser, you may be tasked with two jobs: First, getting all those pies and cookies baked by volunteers. Second, getting paid for the pies—and possibly taking specific orders ahead of time so you don’t overdo the pumpkin pies and under-budget for the pecan pie!
We’ve seen hundreds of non-profits and schools adopt the Payable add-on to take orders for events like these—and get paid at the same time. Payables make it easy to collect orders in a Google Form, then allows you to create a seamless checkout experience—making it easy to bake all the pies you need, and none that you don’t.
You can have it up and running in minutes: Simply make an order form in Google Forms, with pie choice or cookie options, and any specifics (like allergy info if you’re baking nut-free or gluten-free options!). Then, use the Payable add-on to create a simple checkout experience so not only can you take orders, you can get paid in advance, making it easier to buy ingredients and supplies—and not be left with pies that go unpaid for.

If you are running your bake sale as a fundraiser, make more money by simply asking for additional donations in your Form! If you’re fundraising, taking donations, selling something in order to raise money for a non-profit, or running a charity event, you may be missing out on potential donations by skipping one simple step: Adding an open-ended donation option to your Google Form. As you collect payments in the Form using the Payable Add-On, it’s easy to add a space for people to give a few extra dollars to your cause, whether you run the local animal shelter, youth center, or food pantry.
