Mobile Bidding & Donations
Use your own smartphone or a BidPal device.
With BidPal’s automated auctions, guests can use their own smartphone or receive a BidPal device pre-loaded with every auction item including description, photo, value, bid increments, and donor information. Guests may browse the silent auction area to view the auction items but they use their phone or BidPal device to do their bidding from anywhere at any time during the event.
BidPal notifies guests when they have been outbid, eliminating the need to constantly return to the silent auction area. Guests also have the option to set a maximum bid amount and let BidPal automatically increase their bid if necessary. This instant access generates competitive bidding and helps increase funds raised for your organization.
BidPal also opens up additional revenue streams. With BidPal, a “Make a Donation” button on the home page allows attendees to make a cash donation on the spot. When implemented in conjunction with a carefully orchestrated appeal and BidPal’s Scoreboard® that shows real-time donation revenue, organizations can add thousands of dollars to their bottom line in just minutes.
At auction end, guests know immediately which items they’ve won and can instantly check out. BidPal’s post-event reports slice and dice the auction data in ways that most organizations do not pursue. Understanding what worked and what didn’t can help organizations plan an even more successful auction in the future.
