Donations and Sales

You can track donations and sales in Akubo. If you signed up for a Business account will see an “add sale” button. If you signed up for a Non-Profit account will see an “add donation” button.

There are two kinds of transactions in Akubo for business and non-profit. The first is an actual donation (for non-profit) or an paid sale (for business) and the second is a pledge (for non-profit) or a unpaid (to be invoiced) sale (for business).
