Making and reporting on regular donations

Cameo’s payment form type now offers regular as well as single payments (for example, to support regular donations by direct debit).

Introducing accounting and trading

In this significant update, Cameo now offers accounting and trading. Accounting means book-keeping: the ability to record and attribute transactions to different account categories and report on them. Trading means preparing paperwork for invoices, purchase orders and quotations, receipts and expenses, sending them, paying for them and accounting for them afterwards. A new form for merchandise sales will also follow soon. There are lots of new articles about these, summarised here with links:
