You don’t have to be in the same room to support the same mission. Our software provides the tools to run an online auction or store; PLUS live-streamed virtual events! When we can once again hold in-person events, our software will help you run those, too!
Our Digital, Virtual, and Fusion subscriptions provide separate websites for multiple events. This means you can fully customize the website and team for each campaign, plan and run overlapping events, and access event-specific reporting. You can also maintain an ongoing site for one-time and recurring donations.
Our software talks to just about any credit card processor. If you have one you like, and you have a Virtual or Fusion subscription, chances are we can connect it to our software. If you don’t have a preferred processor, shop around and find one with rates you like—rest assured, we won’t mark those rates up or add any transaction fees on top of them.
Move your silent auction online! Leave it open for a week, 10 days, two weeks; as long as you want. Supporters can bid and donate from any device with a web browser.
Recreate the magic of your live auction online. Virtual Live Auctions brings livestreaming video, chat, and bidding all together on the same page for an easy, fun, virtual fundraiser. Want to allow guests to attend either in-person or virtually? No problem – our Fusion plan gives you all the tools you’ll need to let your remote and in-person guests bid against each other in real time.
Keep the fundraising going after your auction, and make donations more accessible to guests, with recurring donations. Small-dollar recurring donations let guests contribute in small incremental amounts along a period of time. Recurring donations may appeal to guests on a budget—those who want to help your organization, but can’t contribute a large dollar amount all at once.
Show your donors how much you appreciate their contributions. Feature sponsors on your auction website—homepage and catalog—and on print receipts. Build sponsorship packages that contain tickets, items, and promotional spots; then sell them online alongside your event tickets.
SchoolAuction.net offers a library of articles, videos, and walkthrough tours to help you get the most out of our software. All subscribers have access to email support prior to their event and phone support the night of their event. Premium subscribers also receive two customized training sessions for their staff and volunteers—conducted via webinar.
“Everything is pretty self-explanatory and it provides everything from donor information to the actual gift certificates/vouchers you can print in the absence of a tangible item. Personalized, reliable support is amazingly helpful too!”
– Kate F.
“I have been using this software for the past two years and it is excellent and very user friendly! I have run the entire auction event from start to finish with this site and I have no complaints about it at all. The customer support is second to none. They have addressed every single ticket I have submitted in under 30 minutes and have always addressed my concerns. The front end is great and easily customized to meet your needs. The backend is straightforward to navigate for anyone with even a little technical ability. They allow you to migrate data between sites in order to preserve donor and item information which makes follow-on years very easy to implement. I have researched other products and I sincerely believe this is the best product for a mid to large size event. You will not be disappointed by this product or their customer service!”

“SchoolAuction.net has been an incredible upgrade from the software we used for a few years. It’s a complete system that essentially provides everything you need in order to conduct an online and/or live auction, from selling tickets to selling items, assigning and printing bid sheets and bidder cards, as well as invoicing, tracking and receiving payments, and reconciliation. Essentially, it’s a complete system. We compared many systems before converting to SchoolAuction.net 3 years ago, and once we chose this one, we haven’t looked back. Each year they have added new and exciting features (they even have mobile bidding and self-checkout with automated email reminders to pay), and their support is fast and clear. They also have very good tutorials and videos, which makes it easy for me to train new users each year (thank you for that, guys!).”

“We got exactly what we wanted from the software, and didn’t have to pay for any extra bells and whistles we didn’t need. All of us felt like it was a great value. And between the super-responsive support staff and the excellent documentation, I never felt lost at sea, which means quite a lot.”
– Tatianna P. | Girls, Inc. of Alameda County
“Our PTA wanted to make sure their money was being well spent… I research and evaluate (and install) software for a living. So I researched the different auction software systems that are out there and hands down SchoolAuction.net was the best choice. I can’t say enough about what great service we’ve gotten over the past few years I’ve been working with this company.”
– Stacey S. | Marshall Lane Elementary School
“I LOVE this system! It is easy to use and navigate and the help we receive from your company is outstanding.”
