Choosing The Right Solution
At GiveSmart, we don’t believe that one size fits all. In fact, we customise a solution for every charity we work with. It’s that level of tailored thinking and service that raises more money for our customers.
Advanced Mobile Bidding
Wonderfully flexible, our advanced mobile bidding option works well with any kind of event. Whether its taking place in a field or even on a boat, your guests will be able to access their personal bidding page or donate funds to your cause. This solution maximises fundraising revenue by keeping your guest’s attention firmly fixed on your auction with outbid alerts straight to their phone.
High End Tablet Bidding
Our tablet bidding option is perfect if you want to give your event that high-class edge or if you have a brilliant collection of items. Guests are able to browse a full colour digital brochure of your auction prizes and experiences in detail. Our high-end Tablet Bidding technology is intuitive and easy for all ages and allows those without a mobile phone to take part in your fundraising.
Get the best of both worlds with our mobile and tablet bidding package - this option caters to all of your supporters and ensures that they are engaged on every level – whatever their bidding preference. The two bidding options compliment each other perfectly, guests can register on the iPads and then receive personalised messages to their mobile phones.
If you want your fundraising to continue year-round this is the option for you. We create a centralised website that combines all of your fundraising activity in one place, allowing you to take donations 365 days a year. Taking payments, running an online auction and selling tickets are just some of the features available.
All of our bidding options include a dedicated and completely customised event website.

More Hands-on Help
Hundreds of fully trained, experienced Customer Service Representatives are ready to help make your event a record-breaking success. Anticipating any potential problems, GiveSmart Representatives go above and beyond to ensure your event runs smoothly.
From helping guests find their tables to spotting winners, we’re always working to enhance your affair. To encourage bidding, we actively engage guests—building rapport with older donors or anyone who may be hesitant about using technology. If that doesn’t work, we’re happy to assist as “personal shoppers.”
As part of our Auction Service, using our unique application, BidPad, our staff are able to place bids or donations on behalf of donors ensuring everyone in the room participate fully at the event.
What Our Customers Say
As you know this was the first time that our Temple has used a bidding company during our annual auction. I can't tell you how happy I am that we did so. You service is more than efficient and easy to use. Having our auction online made us more money than we would have, had we done the traditional silent auction. Most of all it was all less work for me and I actually got to enjoy the event.
As an event planner, the best part about using the GiveSmart team is how easy they make running an auction. The increased revenue is nice, but the fact that I did not have to worry about check out, or monitoring the auction tables or the auction at all, gave me the freedom I needed to mingle with guests, network and take care of other event issues.
I am a GiveSmart customer for life. This technology has taken what used to be a HUGE headache for our small non-profit and turned it into something that helps us raise even more funds while eliminating the hassle of processing payments and handling check-out. I can’t believe we ever used to do this on our own with bid sheets and credit card swipers!
This was our first experience with mobile bidding and Give-Smart did a great job explaining how the mobile bidding system would work, what was expected of us, and the advantages of its use. The Give-Smart employees that we talked to were very friendly, easy to work with from the planning stage weeks before the event to the end of the evening. On the night of the event, check-In was a breeze, bidding went smoothly, and check-out was quick and simple. Very impressed with Give-Smart and would definitely use them for next years Silent Auction.
You and your team at GiveSmart have been a tremendous resource. From the early planning phases to event day GiveSmart has provided us with exceptional support and guidance. At our most important event of the year GiveSmart helped us to deliver a successful auction experience. Please extend our sincere appreciation to your team.
