Complete And Go Back




  • On the bidding site, when displaying the ‘progress bar’ for a donation item, the dollars raised will now include text to give/online donations if set up under "Projected Display Settings" in the item.


Adding your appeal display to your landing page:

You can also add the appeal display to your landing page by going to Software Settings>Landing Page Content>Sections A (if you have the enhanced landing page you will see Sections A,B,C,D) scroll down to the content area and find the shortcode icon and click on Appeal Display. You will need to know the item number and replace the capital letters with that number. 





*You can have more than one donation item set up. 


**The bidder will always have an empty box to add in a different amount from the denominations.
