Connecting to CharityAuctionsToday
Log in to Kindful, and go to Apps on the left sidebar.
Click Custom Apps.
Choose the option to Create a new application.
Fill in the Name and description field. This will be a name and description you can use to identify the integration in the future.

After this action completed, CharityAuctions Today will update your Kindful account with new bidders who register as well as any payment transactions made on your auction page.
All transactions will sync into Kindful in a "General" Campaign. Edit the transactions individually, or use our Bulk Edit tools to adjust these transactions if you so wish.
This integration will create new contacts in Kindful if a bidder does not yet exist, or append to existing contacts in Kindful if the bidder already exists in your Kindful account.
