How To Add A New Item

This how-to guides you through adding a new item to your event.

Items are used extensively in Auctria to handle anything you may be selling or accepting donations towards, for example: auction items, tickets, sponsorships, merchandise, raffle prizes and donations.

When adding new items there are a lot of possible options, but focus on the most important ones and fill in others as needed later.

From anywhere on the dashboard click on Items --> Add New Item to open the Add New Item Page.


The only required field when adding a new item is the Title

Items can have both a Title and a long Description so the title should be kept short.


All Items in Auctria must have a unique item#. This can be entered manually or the system can assign one automatically.

Item# is not limited to just numbers, you can include letters as well.


The item type controls how the item behaves in Auctria.


For bidding items choose Online, Live or Silent based on how the bidding happens.

Items you are selling for a fixed price like tickets or sponsorships would be For Sale items.

If you are accepting donations towards a fund-a-need or project use the Donation type.

See Item Types for more information on the different items types.
