May be steps below should do it

  1. Make receive.php as template, add <?php /* Template Name: theTemplateName */ ?> at the beginning of template file.

  2. Create a page, give it a slug, let say the-receiver, make sure you select theTemplateName as its template.

  3. Now, create a form inside single.php, give an (hidden) input with value from get_the_ID(), set it POST/GET whatever suits you, and the action to site_url('/the-receiver'), match the url to the slug the page that is using your receiver template name. Watch now button should submit the form.

  4. Inside the file/template receiver.php, do your stuff.
