We highly recommend CharityAuctionsToday!

Our experience with CharityAuctionsToday could not have been better! Our company has been doing business with CharityAuctionsToday for the past three years. The online auction feature is exceptional.

Mobile Auction

Mobile auction software Mobile bidding will open your live auction to additional bidders and increased bids. Even if bidders can’t attend your gala or golf outing, they can still bid on your auction items.

Mobile bidding lets bidders stay involved with the auction process throughout the night. A text message alerts them when they are outbid. New bids can be placed from their mobile phone or tablet.

Most of our clients are raising at least 50% more with mobile bidding.

Do you have any questions? We’ve got answers

Can I create a test auction?

Yes, when you create a free account you can upload up to 5 items and place 2 bids per item to test the outbid notifications. During this time you can test the bidding process, reporting and invoicing.

Can I run an auction without a contract?

Absolutely. We don't believe in contracts and feel contracts are just used to lock you into a bad deal. We let our platform speak for itself.

Can I get started without talking to a sales person?

Yes. We actually don't have one sales person on staff. You'll never be called by a pushy sales person trying to get you to sign up. When you test us out, you will see how easy it is to use.

Why are you so cheap?

We use the latest technology, don't have the extra expense of sales people and we don't advertise. We run a lean company focusing on providing value and low cost solutions to our customers. We've grown every year because of returning customers and customer referrals.
