The first three payment levels are being utilized, and in the case of the T-Shirt and Gala Ticket items, Options #1 and #2 to offer the end user additional options such as size, color or seating arrangements etc.

In addition, each item will receive its own unique SKU code to keep track of the different prices and options available for sale. These codes can be changed to reflect existing SKU’s that may already exist within your organization if preferred.
