Success Story: Houston Zoo Uses Sales Station for On-Site Donations and Sales at Saving Wildlife Expo

The Houston Zoo recently partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Network to host the Saving Wildlife Expo, an all-day conservation event at the Zoo. To support the Saving Wildlife Expo, the Zoo needed a solution for:

  • Online registration with different prices for Houston Zoo members and nonmembers
  • Asking for donations during registration to support one of the five endangered animal species discussed at the event
  • Collecting donations at the event
  • Selling merchandise at the event

Learn how the Houston Zoo simplified online and on-site registrations, donations and product sales with Doubleknot and the Sales Station app for iPads!

With Sales Station, admission-based nonprofits including zoos, museums, science centers,
nature centers and botanical gardens can sell tickets, update registrations and collect new
and outstanding payments anywhere.
