It's finally here! You've perfected every last detail of your event website and you're ready to open the fundraising floodgates. The final step? Activating your fundraising event.

So how do you do that? It's easy!

All you need to do is activate it! NO NEED TO PUBLISH YOUR EVENT. Just follow the steps below:

1. From the Admin Console, navigate to the Settings --> Billing page.

2. Select the fundraising modules you would like to use by clicking the corresponding "Add" buttons.

3. Once you have selected all of the modules you would like to use, click the "Activate & Pay" button in the Total box. You will be prompted to enter a credit card as a payment method.

4. Once you have confirmed payment on your selected modules, they will be activated and ready to begin processing bids/payments!

You can see which modules have been activated by checking either the "Current Modules" field on the Billing page.

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to a member of our team!

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I activate my fundraising event?

  • Activating your fundraising event means that will be the start of the event, so only activate it when you're ready to take bids, sell raffles tickets and accept donations.

Do I need to publish my event?

  • No, if your event is only a fundraiser and does not involve a virtual event or event ticketing, you don't need to publish your event.

Do I need to pay upfront when I activate?

  • Yes, you will be asked to enter your credit card information and pay the activation fee.

What if I activated the wrong fundraising module?

  • Just contact us through chat and we will refund you, then you can activate the correct module.

Do I need to activate twice if I'm using 2 different fundraising modules?

  • You can activate in 1 transaction for both, but you can also do it separately.
