Tags for transactions in WA payments
AffiniPay allows users to create "Tags" called "Category 1" and "Category 2" in their merchant applications that can be passed through to the AffiniPay process, thereby enabling the merchant application to share custom information about the transaction origination to AffiniPay's reporting and back to the paying customer.
However, Wild Apricot has not implemented hooks in its application to allow its clients (the "merchant") to make use of the tags feature.
It's there for the using, so please, Wild Apricot, get it working for us.

Yes we have members who sign up for lunches and pay their renewal dues in one transaction in WA, then I have to put multiple tags on them in Affinipay to track the accounts properly - VERY time consuming and tedious.

We have 3 donation categories. They get recorded correctly in our organization database, but when they reach our bank account via AffiniPay they are all simply recorded as "donation". One of our donation categories is for restricted use that cannot be mingled with other donations in our financials. So we must research every single donation and make a manual adjustment in our financial records. This is very important to fix! Thank you Arthur Caldicott for explaining the problem and the solution.

This would be very helpful to distinguish between payments for different types of member levels or to distinguish between online store or memebr payments.
