Silent Auction Software for Nonprofits

We know our way around auctions and that includes silent auction software that can help you with live auction events. Other attendee management software can be bulky and time consuming to set up, but if you’re already running a silent auction at your gala dinner or fall festival, use our system to run both your auction and to manage guest and bidder information.

Just like our auction, raffle, ticketing, and donation features, our silent auction software is included in both our pricing plans and free to start. In other words, we don’t make money if you don’t raise money. 

Our Flex Plan has no starting fee, only platform and processing fees, and you’re guaranteed to pocket between 92%-100% of your donation proceeds. 

While our Prepaid Plan does have a starting fee of around $297-$1,500 (depending on your needs), this plan allows unlimited access to certain features, like SMS credits, and guarantees between 94%-100% of your proceeds go to your organization.

There’s no such thing as a totally free auction platform so beware of those who say theirs is!

Manage your donor’s contact, payment, and shipping details (if you choose to offer shipping on your auction items). Get guests checked in quickly and easily upon arrival. Pre-register their credit cards for faster check out.

Attendee Management Software for Silent Auctions

If you’re planning a live event in conjunction with your online auction, our system makes it easy to get guests registered. Collect name, contact information, and pre-register credit cards so that when your event is over and you’re packing up, you don’t also have to worry about checking out auction winners. Ditch paper bid sheets and simplify your in-person silent auctions all while gaining new donors to export to your own donor database.

What Users Are Saying About Us

Frequently Asked Questions

Simply upload your items to our auction platform, promote your event, and get ready for the big day. Once your event starts, you can check guests into our system quickly so that they’ll be ready to bid as soon as your silent auction opens. You can make pre-registering a credit card optional or mandatory. Let them browse the tables of prizes or check out the items on their phone right from their seats. They’ll be notified if they’re outbid and when they win, and if they pre-registered a credit card they’ll be able to check out in moments. That’s money in your cause’s pocket, faster.

Whether you’re sharing table with your guests or they’re a continent away, they can bid on items through our platform with ease. It is possible to list items online on our platform and then use paper bid sheets at your in-person event, but why would you? Hosting your silent auction online, even at a real life event, means less hassle for your event staff as well as less hassle for winners at check out time.

Our attendee management software is just one of many features included in our pricing plans at no extra charge. We have two tiers of pricing, Flex and Pre-Paid, but if you don’t raise any money, we don’t make any money.

Yes, you and your guests can trust our site to keep credit card details safe with the latest standards in website security.
