Best Deal for Charity Auctions

Pros

I like this software! It's easy and self-explanatory. I shopped around and the fees are the best ones around, especially for my non-profit's small annual auction. I like being able to copy the disclaimers/instructions to each item.

Cons

I wish you could edit photos with this software.

Great Auction Software for Events

We loved CAT and plan to use them again.

Pros

Our team used Charity Auctions Today for a black tie event. It was a great upgrade from previous software that we used. I liked that bidders were able to get automatic texts to their phones when they were outbid and how we could capture their credit ard information when they checked in. It really helped us streamline things. Also really liked the paddle raise option that displayed donations coming in in realtime.

Cons

Invoicing was a little tricky, but we were able to figure it out fine.

Great Auction Software

We plan to use this software again this year.

Pros

Before our event, someone on customer service team called me and spent an hour walking me through the software and how to effectively use it on our event. I loved the card swipers to gather credit card numbers quickly. It was easy to input guest information and auction items. Price was very competitive as well.

Cons

Invoicing was a little confusing, especially when it came to those who wanted to pay via cash or check.

Charity Actions Anyday

Considering I was using it on behalf of a local nonprofit (for our joint actions) I think it fits needs of nonprofits that are focused on fundraising through auctions. Usually, if that is your main source of funding, you are accustomed to some more expensive products.

Pros

It's a simple tool that helps you get a solid reach -- bidders far beyond your regular attendees. Text message feature was by far my favorite (and impactful!)

Cons

I think it's pricey considering it's aiming at non-profits. Also, we would definitely need more customization possibilities; while there are some, we still feel like being put in a box.

Easy for Even the Technically Challenged

Super easy. There are training videos and customer support is ready to help when needed.

Pros

You can set up and start your auction in under an hour.

Cons

If you don't have a good network to share your auction, it can be difficult to get items sold. Be sure to share with your friends, families, and co-workers. Ask them to share on their social media pages too.
