Launch Your
Auction To The World

If you're opening your silent auction early for pre-bidding, you will use these tools to launch it to the world. If you just want attendee and bid sheet management, you can skip this step.

We make it easy for you and your bidders to share your auction on social media.

They can share the entire auction or just the items they find interesting.

We also offer embedable links and widgets visitors can place on their websites to help drive more traffic to your auction.

Register Bidders &
Check-in At the Event

Attendees can be pre-loaded into the system before the event. Any bidder who registers for your pre-bid auction will also be registered as an attendee.

You can quickly check attendees in as they arrive, assign bidder numbers and make edits on the fly.

Credit cards can be pre-registered during check-in for fast checkout.

Easy Check Out

When your auction ends, you can quickly enter the winning bidders from the bid sheets back into our system to generate invoices.

Invoices can be sent by text message to winning bidders so they can pay from their tables. If you pre-registered credit cards, you can charge all the winners at once.

If you collect payment offline with Cash or Check, you can easily mark invoices as paid from the admin area.

I am not super “techy” and your site was extremely easy to use and set up. People commented a lot about how nice the site was and how easy it was to navigate. We had hoped for $10,000 and ended up with $20,000 that was not even on the radar.

CharityAuctions Today is a wonderful, easy to use site. We were able to have a successful silent auction and we couldn’t have done it without the website as well as the exceptional customer experience we received from Tom Kelly.

As a first-time user of the web site, I found the system very easy to learn and navigate. I appreciated the Bulk Upload feature, and could work on the web site in segments so that it wasn't so overwhelming to build.
