After a donation is made and processed in Stripe, Donate2 completes the transaction and checkout process with Tessitura through your Tessitura API. If the donor selected the Gift Aid option, after the checkout is complete, Donate2 will use the information configured in the Gift Aid Declarations section of your Tessitura configuration to process a Gift Aid declaration for the constituent.
Gift Aid can be configured in your Tessitura TEST and must be LIVE Integrations for Gift Aid declarations to work. The data that populates the drop downs comes from your Tessitura instance.
