the column types of cash_total_value and gift_card_value are type of DECIMAL(15,4) this means this columns can have total of 15 digits and 4 out of 15 will be fraction part.

In order to get 2 digits after "." you need to change type of columns to DECIMAL(15,2).

1,000.00 like numbers need to be converted to 1000.00 before you insert to database

Thank you will try it out.

You may want to keep the 4 decimal points precision. Options are discussed in this stackoverflow question and others.

You can always display or retrieve the values at two decimal points. For example
SELECT ROUND(gross_amount, 2) AS gross_amount
FROM donations;
