Participant View of Optional/ Included Items

When the participant is registering they will see the "Included Item" like this.



When the participant is registering they will see the "Registration AddOn" items like this.
- they type the quantity of the items they require.




In addition to the above, if you choose to only allow them to add a quantity of 1 (in the advanced options of the optional items section), then it is shown as a tickbox instead.
   - you can also have this ticked by default if you require. Contact us to setup that function.



The "Merchandise" items are shown on their own page -


They can select the size and quantity and then add to their registration.

If they click the picture of the item, it will open a larger picture of the item with the extra description text you have added.



Please Note: after a person has registered, they can go back and add more optional items at a later date, as long as "Edit Registration" is turned on and the "Open To" date on the optional item has not passed.



Registration Levels
Optional items can now be set at the individual or team level or both. This means that event organizers can now filter the options shown to participants. (e.g. Only teams are eligible for a team singlet not individuals and therefore will only be given the option to purchase team singlets.)
Available to Categories - is only available to the Include Item.
Available to Categories - is available for all 3 option types. 




You can also setup merchandise pickup / postage options on the Merchandise Options tab for your merchandise items.
 - if they select a merchandise item, it will then ask them for the pickup / postage options based on what you have set.
