Allow item upgrades
BackerKit allows your backers to upgrade their pledge items to a higher-priced, premium version of the item. For example, if a backer is going to receive a softcover book as part of their pledge, you can give them an option to pay extra for the hardcover version.
To charge an additional fee for an item upgrade:
- Set up the item in the Item Generator. Make sure to set up the premium versions as options for the item, not as separate items.
- On the menu on the left, click Pledge Questions.
- Click the edit link next to the pledge question for the item you created.
- Add a price to the premium option you created. Note that the price automatically appears in the option description in the survey.
- Click Save Pledge Question.
- Preview your question in the survey to see how it appears to your backers. For more information about viewing your survey, see Preview your Survey in the Getting Started Guide.
