# Setting Up A Donation Only Website (updated)

Setting Up A Donation Only Website is one of the easiest and most straight-forward event websites to use in Auctria.

# Create The Website

Once you have gone through the Initial Setup you will need to finish up with creating your website. In this case, simply choose the Basic: Donations Only template and all the major work is done.

For a bit more visual details click on the Preview template button on the Create New Website page.

# Make The Site Your Own (updated)

You may find that the default Donation Element does not have the Donation Levels you want to use, you can make those changes by Setting Donation Levels you want.

You can make adjustments to the Thermometer element as well such as changing the fundraiser Target amount.

You can also make other changes to the "basic" website by using the Website Editor.

# Enable Bidder Registration

Although you may not have any bidding for a Donation Only website you will still need to enable Bidder Registration as it is required for the checkout portion when donors make their payments.

Start by clicking on Website -> Bidder Registration from the main Auction Dashboard menu.

Although your event was live immediately, your Donors will now be able to pledge their donation and make their payments.
