You would like to know your registration options for a Pledge or Crowdfunding event.
There are two registration page options that you can consider for your Pledge event registration: one is for free / no cost registrations and the other is for registrations that require a fee be paid.
Free / No Cost Registration
The first is a no cost registration. This page is very simple for registrants and they can create or join teams as part of the registration process. You can also ask your participants questions, but you cannot sell products as there is no shopping cart on the page (you can still sell products on a different page).
This page is called Pledge Participant Registration and can be enabled from Website -> Pages.
Fee Required Registration
If you choose to charge a registration fee for your participants, you will need to enable the Registration Fees page from Website -> Pages. Using Registration Fees enables the shopping cart, where users can also purchase sponsorships and products.
