Solicit Items

The Solicit Items element is used to allow Donors to donate items through your auction website. Donors can enter their item, add images, their Donor information, etc.

Note

All items entered online in this way are not automatically added to the auction item list.
They will need to be reviewed and accepted before they are "promoted" to be auction items.

Add A Page To Solicit Items

Create a new web page, for example "Donate Items", to capture the information (see Add a Page for more details on this process) and select the new "Donate Items" page from the menu to edit it.

To add the Solicit Items element, open the Content editor and select the Elements section.

Under Elements, click Others, select the Solicit Items element, then drag and drop it onto the website page. See Add an Element for more information.
