Only after all payment has been collected for your service we will send you an invoice for the auction site build. We have kept the costs as minimal as possible, there is only a minimal set up fee of £295 and then 3% of the total monies raised.
Our online auction service Fundraising.bid is the perfect platform to host an online auction. A good social media following or a large network of email addresses allows you to promote an auction to your supporters without even hosting an event. If you have already booked us for a Silent Auction then you can use it as a completely free add on to encourage pre event bidding.
Once we have spoken to you about your fundraising goals, one of our Fundraising Consultants will help you decide which service is best suited for you to maximise the amount you can raise.
Auction Set Up
If you decide that an Online Auction is the best suited, we will begin setting up your auction website.
Your auction will be personalised with any brand colours and logos that you send us.
You can let us know during the build process of your online auction site if you would like to include any of our auction lots.
Once your auction site is finished it is ready to be launched! The best way to promote your site to your supporters is through social media or e-mail marketing campaigns.
Once the auction finishes, winning bidders will receive a winning e-mail notification. Payment can be collected through the site or by your own methods.
