How It Works
Fundraising is a labor of love. You do the labor because you love your organization. But we all know that auctions require an extreme amount of work sourcing donations, collecting and categorizing them, notifying winners, and staying late to check out each individual item. Fortunately, there’s a better way to run your auction that takes care of the logistics and makes it possible to raise more money than ever before. Putting together a fundraiser is much easier—and significantly more profitable—with Cause 4 Auction.
Here’s How It Works
Create Your Auction.
Our easy-to-follow online form guides you step-by-step through the process. Name your auction, upload images, and customize as needed to make your auction run when and how you want.
Enter the items individually as they come in through our interface or upload them as a CSV or TAB file.
Add your bidders manually or import a group as a CSV or TAB file. You can also allow bidders to self-register or automatically register when they make their first bid.
Watch your numbers rise as bidders engage.
Bidders anywhere receive outbid notices, giving them the motivation to raise their bids and engage other bidders.
After your auction has ended, you can click to send messages to notify item winners.
Self or Manual Checkout.
Lighten your workload and make end-of-night checkout fast and easy by allowing your winners to pay for their items with their mobile devices. Manual checkout is available for cash/check payments or for those who want a full-service option.
