Mobile Auction Software

Mobile bidding will open your 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 the 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.

How we started and why

Charity Auctions Today was started back in 2007. The owner, Tom Kelly, was helping his mother look for a way to run an online charity auction for a local non profit. After searching the few online charity auction companies, he found that every company charged huge upfront fees and a large percentage fee on the money raised. With the local non profit raising an average of $3000 per auction, after the upfront cost and the huge performance fee, the non profit would be left with almost nothing.

With that in mind, Tom thought he could do much better. He created a simple online charity auction software platform for the local non profit. After the success of the first auction and the fact that the non profit organization was able to keep more of the money raised, word quickly spread. Tom had more and more organizations wanting to use his site and he quickly found that his simple auction software platform was turning into a game changer.

Since 2007 we have helped 4500+ of the world's top non profits and schools raise over $85 million dollars.
