Risk Free Items allow you to place exclusive and unique packages in your charity auction or fundraising event without any upfront cost.

Packages include award shows, major sporting events, VIP access, family vacations and much more. There are no sign up or usage fees and you purchase only what you sell, making every item risk free.

From the Items area of your Auction Dashboard, you can easily browse through our portfolio of travel packages and reserve the items you would like to include in your event. When your event is over, Winspire’s Booking & Concierge Service will assist your winning bidders and manage their booking and travel experience.

Please note, in addition to what you see, most packages are offered without air travel upon request.

What are next steps after I sell a Risk free package?

After you auction ends and you have successful sold a package, a Winspire representative will reach out to you. The connection will iron out all the details with you in terms of payment and booking information for your winning bidder.

Step 4) Once an item has been reserved, you will receive an email from Winspire containing the details of your package. This email will be an accurate description, pictures and pricing so you can properly add the package to your auction.

Please note, we recommend setting a reserve or starting bid at a minimum of 20% above the Nonprofit Cost.

If bidding doesn’t reach the minimum you set, then it costs your organization nothing. Any bidding that occurs beyond the Nonprofit Cost goes directly to your cause!
