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
Thank you very much for providing such attentive, excellent customer service during Dignity Health-St.Rose Dominican's recent Mardi Gras Ball gala. Not only is GiveSmart effective, but your personal touch has made working with you a real pleasure. You can be sure that we will continue to do business with GiveSmart for years to come.
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.
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.
From entering the data on to our "Dash Board" to staffing our event with professional and helpful employees, our event was seamless. We exceeded our auction projections by gigantic proportions. Again GiveSmart proves themselves to be money well invested. So much so, I am here to say that I don't see myself ever having an event of such magnitude without GiveSmart at my side.
Every step of the way, your GiveSmart team provided our staff and volunteers with expert guidance and prompt support. Working with you and your team was a terrific experience. We look forward to a long-term partnership with GiveSmart and have no doubt that with your help, we'll be able to improve our fundraiser and increase our revenue.
