An easy, elegant conclusion to any event, our electronic check out process sends your guests home with the minimum fuss. Guests who pre-swiped their cards at registration enjoy the ultimate convenience -to simply leave when they want.
How It Works:
As soon as the silent auction closes, your guests receive a notification for any items they’ve won. They can elect to pay with a pre-authorized credit card on file, with a new card that they simply enter into their mobile phones, or in person with a GiveSmart Customer Service Representative.
When the payment is approved, guests immediately receive a text and email receipt of their purchase.
A centralized redemption screen lets you know when items are paid for and can be released to the winners.
The most frustrating part of an auction is often the checkout, which can become clogged with payment issues or slow-moving guests. GiveSmart makes waiting in long lines and writing or printing out tedious paper receipts a thing of the past with our easy and convenient electronic check out process.
Our system allows guests to pay for auction items with the swipe of a credit card rather than scrambling for cash or writing out a check. We capture all payment information electronically and even offer guests convenience of paying via mobile anywhere and anytime throughout the event.
This doesn’t just eliminate long checkout lines though; it allows us to assemble detailed payment reports quickly and easily. You can see exactly who paid for what and when with integrated payment and registration information.
With all of this data, you will be able to clearly see how close you are to your fundraising goals as well as identifying which bidders have earned VIP status with their support. As for your guests, all they will talk about is the favorable impression you made at the end of your event by making checkout a breeze.

What Our Customers Say
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!
Thank you again so much for making the Foothill High School Marching Band Silent Auction such a success. Allowing anyone with a smartphone or computer to participate in the Silent Auction is truly the next level of charitable giving. You were positive and motivating right from the start. You made what seemed like an overwhelming task possible.
We were completely thrilled with every way Give Smart assisted us, from our first phone call to our final closing report. They couldn't have been more pleasant and prompt in responding to our needs. My numerous conversations with our Client Service Specialist, became as comfortable as talking with an old friend. The efficiency, professionalism and overall friendliness of their team was amazing. Our event was a huge financial success with the assistance of GiveSmart.
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.
As i have said repeatedly to our board members, friends and supporters, we have no intention of ever doing an event such our Taste and Golf events without GiveSmart! Your fabulous team was on target this year with the pre-swiping of credit cards, registrations and professional attitude that made checkin and checkout a dream! And, the follow up reports you provided were clear, concise, and allowed us to close our event in record time!
