Increasing reach and participation, mobile bidding auctions increase funds raised by an average of 30% when switching from paper to mobile bidding. Donors bid directly from their mobile devices, then receive instant outbid text notifications taking them back to the item to bid again.
Hosting a silent auction online allows people not physically present at an event to browse, bid, and buy items. More guests at events bid on items because they can do so privately and quickly on their phones without pushing through crowded auction areas.
As planning begins, the collection of items is efficient and documented within the GiveSmart Items Management solution. Direct donors to submit their item images and descriptions right away through your site and manage the donations that come in easily by using the procurement status field. This makes for an easier tracking and creation of your auction items.
Manage your auction items, relevant tax information, images, packages, and bidding activity within your auction catalogue. The GiveSmart platform automatically generates item sheets to display at your event.
Track your event’s performance on the admin dashboard utilizing real-time data to look at your financials at any point during your event. After, download a comprehensive overview or specific breakdowns of revenue streams for the event.
