A collection is the page that an organizer creates and shares with a group to collect payments. There are four steps in the process of creating a Collection on Cheddar Up, which we outline here.
Step 1: Details
On Build > Details, give your collection a name. This is the only required field on this step. Consider further customizing your collection by adding a banner image (1200 X 675 pixels) and description (a field that allows additional details your payers may need to know). Here you will also see the option to add information blocks, which will be featured in the right column of your collection page. This includes multiple options such as the ability to: make your total collected public, make your participant list public, show a fundraising goal, add frequently asked questions, add a date, time and/or location, promote sharing your page, and update your contact name and profile picture. 
Step 2: Items
On Build > Items, click "Add Item" to create your items. An item is anything that someone can pay for and has a cost associated with it. You can create multiple item types including a fixed amount, a donation (or open) amount, a ticket, or a recurring plan. More details about items.
Step 3: Forms
On Build > Forms, click to add a "Form", "Waiver", or "Sign Up". These are different form types that allow you to gather information in addition to payment (or without payment). Give your form, waiver, or sign up a name and continue to build it out to fit your information-collecting needs. More details about forms.
Step 4: Settings
On Build > Settings, you can choose from and add many optional settings that allow additional customization of your collection. Some of these option are available on the Basic plan, while others are only available on the Pro or Team plans. Once you've added your options, you're ready to share your collection!
