Registration Fee Dropdown

The Registration Fee Dropdown (previously known as the Fee Control) is available on Events and Activities.  This field will always drive registration and is the preferred registration driver that should be used on all Events and Activities.  The Fee Control is designed to collect fees for event attendance. It is a multi-price commerce item presented in a dropdown list.  The fee control drives registration for the Event or Activity it is used on.  It cannot be used as a non-registration field.

Registration Commerce Item

 The Registration Commerce Item is available to be used to drive registration on an Event and/or Activity.  This is not the recommended choice for registration because it does not offer the one-to-one registrant to fee information that allows for accurate exports and reporting; however, there may be times that this is needed.   The Registration Commerce Item will be listed as an option in the Data Field Type dropdown under the Event Fields on the Add Field window.  If an event already has a Registration Fee Dropdown driving registration, then the Registration Commerce Item will not be available.

Commerce Dropdown

The Commerce Dropdown field will be available on Events, Membership Campaigns, Donation Campaigns and Commerce Forms.  This field can be used to sell a t-shirt along with a membership purchase or to offer parking passes on an Event.  This field functions the same as the Registration Fee Dropdown.  The main difference is that the Commerce Dropdown field does not drive registration.  It just simply offers the constituent a list of options available to them in a dropdown format.  

Adding and configuring the field will be done the same way that an admin adds and configures the Registration Fee Dropdown. 

The Commerce Dropdown field will display the same as the Registration Fee Dropdown in Form Exports, and Editing a Registration will work in a similar manner to the Registration Fee Dropdown.  

NOTE:  Fair market value is not offered with this control on Memberships, Donations and Commerce Forms.

Adding and configuring the field will be done the same way that you add and configure the Registration Commerce Item.
