Answers to these questions are below

Have a different question? Type it in, here:
How does this work?
You manage the pool by logging into the "www.pooltracker.com" site.

You have special "admin" privileges that no one else has.

You promote the private label url, so, everyone else goes to that branded site to make picks and see results.

    
What is my password to login?
Passwords are encrypted, for security reasons.

You can have an email sent with instructions on how to reset credentials, via the "reset your password" page.

The link to that page is on the login page, or here:
http://www.pooltracker.com/wwwauth/resetpwd.aspx

If we have record of your password hint, you may be able to change your password, directly on the site.

Please note, passwords are case-sensitive.

Fund Raising?

We host fundraiser pools, but, we can't facilitate getting donations from people.  Fund collecting must be done elsewhere. 

In the past, clients have set up paypal donation accounts.
more info here: 
https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/fundraising
https://merchant.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=merchant%2Fdonations

There are 2 ways that are typically done.
1. Donate first, then make picks
2. Make picks and donate if you like


1. The "donate first" method gives you more control over who enters the pickem pool.  
  • You direct people to your site/fund raising page.
  • Once they donate, you give them a password to get into the pickem pool site.
  • Only people with the password can join the pickem pool.
  • This method is very similar to running a raffle.  Please see more details below.

2.  Scenario 2 is a little more laxed, because people are not required to donate, in order to join the pickem pool.
  • The pickem pool site can have a link to your donation page.
  • Emails, sent by the pickem pool site, can have a link to your donation page.
  • Most people will donate, but, there is the chance that some will not.


Something to consider is whether prizes will be awarded to donators only, or if there are laws against that, in your area.  For most states/areas, making donations required is similar to running a raffle.  Some states/areas require charities to register their raffle, prior to running the raffle.  Running a bracket challenge that requires donations is very similar.
