Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which subscription package is right for my team?

Not all auctions are the same. That’s why we’ve created three subscription packages to serve a variety of auction types. Our Standard subscription is perfect for groups who run a small traditional auction every year, but may or may not want to incorporate some online bidding. Our Plus subscription is designed for groups who run larger auction fundraisers, may want to incorporate mobile-bidding at their event, and/or wish to collect recurring donations from their guests. Our Premium subscription is designed for teams that would like personalized training in using the software.

What will I need to use it?

To get started, all you need is a computer or tablet, an internet connection, and a web browser (Chrome, Firefox or Safari). On the night of your event you will need additional computers and printers to use as check-in stations and an internet connection at your auction venue. We recommend 4 stations for auctions of up to 250 guests, and an additional station for every 50 guests thereafter. If you would like to accept credit cards for payment, you will also need a credit-card processing account with a bank.

Can I change my mind later about which subscription level I want?

Sure! We start everyone out with a 30-day free trial of our Plus subscription, and when you purchase a subscription, you can choose the level that is right for your organization.
