Paddle Raise Software That Works With or Without an Auctioneer
Depending on your event, choose between a traditional paddle raise or a mobile paddle raise. Both work great with or without the help of an auctioneer.
Traditional Paddle Raise
This type of paddle raise works well if you're using our Live Auction Management features and assigning everyone a bidder number with a bidder paddle. As the auctioneer is calling out donation amounts, you can easily enter the bidder numbers into our system.
As you hit submit, we'll create invoices and update the leaderboard in real time with the new donation amounts.
You will also be able to run reports, make edits and fix any mistakes from this page.
Mobile Paddle Raise
When using the mobile paddle raise, it's always a good idea to have an auctioneer or DJ hyping up the crowd and getting the guests to push the button on their phone. Make sure you have the "Paddle Raise leaderboard" projected onto a screen in the room for everyone to see.
Mobile Paddle Raise Settings
Setting up your mobile paddle raise is easy. Tell our system your goal amount, enter up to 6 preset donation amounts and select the option for "Other". This will allow the guests to donate any amount they wish.
Getting Bidders to the Paddle Raise Page
Most users run this mobile paddle raise along with a mobile auction. When guests are logged in and bidding on items at the mobile auction, make an announcement to click on the Paddle Raise tab.
Let the Donations Begin!
Now it's time to get the announcer to start hyping the crowd. With each push of the button, donation amounts will be added to invoices and the leaderboard will be updated.
As donations start to pour in, the donation totals will increase in real time. We even show the donor's name with each donation giving them recognition.
Mobile paddle raises are a fun way to get the crowd involved and automate the paddle raise process. At the end of the night, you can easily charge everyone's pre-registered credit card to eliminate long checkout lines.
