Add-Ons allow you to expand on selections by collecting additional information like time slots or tickets. They can also be used for merch since you can assign a price, set the quantity available, and add forms specific to add-ons.
If you need to collect money without having people register, Stripe Payment Links is a good solution for these non-tax-deductible payments!

From the Manage tab, go to Add-Ons, and then choose New Add-On.
Fill out the information for the add-on in the way you want it to be shown to people during the registration process.
Enter the name of the add-on as you want it displayed to people when they're registering.
Add the price per add-on.
If there's a limited quantity, add that number. As add-ons are included in registrations, people will be able to see how many are left. It will show as "sold out" when the limit is reached.
If you don't want attendees to include add-ons when they register, you can choose to hide it on Church Center.
Allow attendees to make partial payments for the add-on.
Allow attendees to purchase more than one add-on.
Make the add-on available to certain selections, to tailor the registration process for each attendee and help prevent attendees from ordering something they don't need.
Select Save to include this add-on on your event.
Choose how your add-ons are displayed on Church Center.

When a person registers, they can choose add-ons available to their selection. The cost will be added to their registration total.
After a person registers, they can ask an Administrator to change their selected add-on. An Administrator can change it in the attendee's registration details and send an email to inform them of the change.
