When you purchase a Fund A Need only account you will have access to all item types except Silent. This means you can create a Donation item and sell Quantities of items, and you can auction off live items, but no Silent Auction can be performed. 


If this is not what you intended you can visit the Account Status page under Software Settings > Account Status to click "Activate Full Event License" for an additional $295.


To start your Fund A Need event, go to Items > Manage Items. Create a Donation item by clicking the Add Item button at the top of the page. 

  • Create denominations for this item by clicking the +Denominations button
  • Add a description
  • Update the closing time 
  • Make it active


Navigate to Software Settings > Landing Page Content > Login/Register Area to make sure your "Open Auction Early" dropdown is set to Yes or that your Event Start date is in the past. Guests will then be able to sign in and give to that item.
