Solicit Items

The Solicit Items is an element where donors can donate items through your website. Donors can enter their item, image and their donor information. All items entered online in this way are not automatically added to the auction item list, instead, they need to be accepted and then they are promoted to be items.

Add Solicit Items

Create a new web "Donate items" page to capture the information (see Add a Page for more details on this process).

Select the new "Donate Items" page from the menu.

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

Under Elements, click Others, and then select the Solicit Items element. Use drag and drop functionality to Add an Element to the website page.
